Proof that we’ve started on the makeover of The Kid’s room.
We bought him a bed last weekend, an awesome wooden self-assembly bed. And I decided to paint it myself, as the place we bought it from wanted to charge us 50% of the price of the bed to paint it for us. Just to paint it white. So I was planning on buying a few tins of paint and some rollers and doing it myself, but The Boyfriend (as usual) had other (apparently better) plans.
Plans that involved a spray gun, a tin of enamel matt off-white paint and a bottle of lacquer thinners. He had no idea of the mission he’d created for himself. And all I can say is thank eff for groundsheets, otherwise everything in my garage would be off-white. It took him the entire weekend, and he’s still not finished. He’s run out of paint. Siiiigh.
The mattress and bedding still needs to be bought. I’m thinking something like this.
I found it online, and am totally counting down the hours until I can go home and hijack The Boyfriend’s credit card and buy this bad boy. And we’re going to paint over the Spongebob murals – probably lime green and a custard yellow with white edgings.
And I want to do something like this as well:
So what do you think?
