Kids’ Bedroom – Before and After

Hi! We’re in the middle of renovating our hundred year old house. If you want to see how the house looked when we bought it, here’s house tour part 1 and part 2. This is what we have achieved with the kids’ bedroom transformation over the past 12 months.  See part 1 and part 2 to see the bedroom renovation in progress.

I don’t know about you, but I love a good before and after – especially if there is a dramatic difference.

Here it is!

That dusty lacy lampshade still gives me the shivers.  Anyway…

Let’s start the bedroom tour!

DJ’s corner with his beloved colourful digger duvet set.  The car light shade is from Asda, back when we were doing up their nursery in our old home.

I love our giraffe lamp, it really finishes off the room.  It’s fun and quirky without being too babyish.  Beside it is a Noah’s Ark from Zambia, my Dad was over there a few years ago and brought it back for DJ.

EJ’s corner, with her quilt and her pink stool that Mr P made for her.

This is soon to be LJ’s cot!  We’ll see how it goes with the three of them sharing for a wee while anyway.  The other upstairs bedroom is currently empty and the wallpaper is half stripped off…

EJ loves her new bed (when she actually finds a space for herself amongst all the dolls and teddies!)

It was such a great feeling when this room was finished.   Part 1 and Part 2 show how far we came from dusty peely florals to fresh and clean geometrics.  (Don’t get me wrong, I love florals in smaller doses!)  As the first room renovated in the house, it gave us a taste of what the rest could be like when it’s all “done” – whenever that might be!
