Homeserve Winter Blogger Challenge Room Makeover

You know what's it's like when they outgrow their playroom  and it's full to the brim with all the tat you brought them the really useful stuff they pestered you for .The room becomes unloved and untouched. It merely becomes a hoarder of junk , a case of out of side out of mind but then comes  a time when the room is needed again.

This time the room is needed for GCSE study I don't what it is about boys they prefer to do their writing anywhere but a desk , this is fine when they are younger but GCSE study demands more of them. They need a space for all their books, pens and pencils , laptops and other gadgets that will aid them upon their learning discovery.

The room had a England curtains and a England lampshade not quite what a teenage boy might what or should have! Also it had a side board *don't ask ok alright it harboured more junk ! We swifly sold the sideboard on ebay to make room for the mini room make over,  thankfully we had been given a £50 B & Q voucher from Homeserve as part of a Winter blogger challenge for this purpose and it couldn't have come at a better time.

England Curtains

With the £50 you bought a new pair of curtains which are far more grown up and thermal lined so saving us poor patents money ! and a lamp for extra light when he is studying ( thus us fitted with an energy saving bulb) With the money with made from selling the sideboard we bough a desk off an auction site so he has somewhere to study. The lampshade is from a collection we already had and again this fitted with an energy saving lightbulb.

We already had the shelving unit it has been waiting for seven years to be put up , it has certainly transformed the space.

It still needs a lick of paint but for a quick turn around I don't think it's a half bad job do you.

Even the cat is finding the room cosy ! wherever I lay my cat is my home !
