I’m moving soon, so I won’t have chance to finish my sons box bedroom.😩 But I still wanted to share what I’ve done, and what else I was going to do. As an idea for anyone trying to decide how to decorate a small room.
The house I’m renting has two double rooms and one box room. I liked the idea of having my sons bed in a separate room from his toys. So I decided to use the box room as his bedroom, with just his bed, books and his pet fish. 😂Then I used the smaller double bedroom as a playroom.
To create this room I used Wilko pearl grey paint £12.00 on the two longest walls, and around the inside of the window. I had just enough to cover the two walls in two coats of paint. I’ve use so many different makes of paint, but Wilko is defiantly my fave.
Then I covered the smallest walls in dinosaur wallpaper. I originally ordered it from Wilko for £10.00, but unfortunately they had non in stock, but I did managed to find it on amazon for £11.00 a roll.
I also ordered red curtains and lamp shade from Argos before I moved in to this house. Although I like the red curtains and light shade, I think I would have prefere a deep blue. What do you think?
This wallpaper would also look amazing with a deep blue or red wall paint.
I had some old floating shelves I bought from B&M last year 2 for £5. (they still stock them) I planned to paint white clouds on one grey wall and cover the shelves in silver self adhesive film from Wilko. And place each shelf under a cloud.
On the opersite wall I had planned to paint dinosaur feet in a darker shade of grey. (Wilko Storm)
This foldable laundry basket from IKEA under £2, is perfect for storing all my sons teddys.
