Just a little update on Hayden's room.
Things are at a slow pace but we are getting there. Some items to complete the look of this room have started turning up. Like this canopy from Numero 74 [yes, another canopy... ]. Isn't it so beautiful? He now have both white and grey canopies. He is one very happy boy!
Another item such as the shelves from Rafa Kids also turned up last week but we haven't yet had the chance to open the box. I need to decide which wall it will go on. It all depends where the wardrobe will go... [again, something i need to carefully decide]. I don't like to drill holes unnecessarily.
I am thinking it might go on this wall. But i'm sure wherever it is placed, it will look nice. :)
I wanted to show you this side of the bed. It's a secret hideaway! This is where we hide some of Hayden's toys when he's not playing with them. I'm thinking of maybe a built in shelf in that little cove area. At the moment, we hide 3 big baskets/bag in here. Good hiding place, huh?
This is how we make it look neat and tidy. It's never going to be so tidy in this room, mind. It's a boy's room, after all and boys have so many toys! Especially this boy. He's a hoarder. He doesn't really like to part with them. Every single toys he's been given no matter how long it's been, he remembers each one! This makes it really difficult for me to get rid of some.
Last week, i did an Audit of his cuddly toys and one of the items i put away was shark. Sure enough, he asked for shark! Aaaarrrgghhh. I put shark outside to go in the bin. Hush.
I'm in love with this room! I'm really pleased that we finally did the makeover. The floors are stunning and the bed is utterly gorgeous! I'm so glad we went for this bed in the end.
I get asked a lot where these linen beddings are from. They are from H&M and a dear friend Denise, kindly got them for us. We have both the white and grey. Sadly, H&M don't yet deliver in Jersey. Boo!!!!
This is the other side of the room. I would like to keep this middle area clear so that Hayden can easily play here. Also so that his scalextric track can fit here too whenever he would like to play with them. The corner area, is where i'm thinking of putting the wardrobe.
I can't believe my little boy is so grown up. This year in September, he will start to go to school. Oh my.... as if my heart don't ache enough already.

Happy Sunday! :)
