If you have been following Common Chaos Chronicle on Facebook, you would know I have been hard at work redecorating Aria’s room to make it into a fresh space for both her and Mackenzi to share.
It’s taken a while but I’m happy to say that aside from one ‘name plaque’ the room is finished!
(Don’t worry Mack, your dad will be chopping out the letters real soon!)
So here is all our hard work in pictures…
This is an old toybox that I got from an op-shop about 12mths ago. It was in the other girls room but I decided to revamp it for this project!
This is a Aria's bed before we started. She had an old double bed, which never stayed made and took up most of the room!
The secondhand Wall Unit that has been used in a few different rooms around our house. Aria uses it as a desk when it's not covered in JUNK!!
These 2 Holden foam chairs used to be in Jai's room but he no longer wanted them. I have washed the covers so many times and cannot remove the stains, so I'm going to revamp them too
We moved the bunks from Jai's room into this room
I painted the blue bits purple to match the colour scheme of the room!
Here are the bunks ready to be decorated.
I purchased 2 pin boards and painted them to match the room.
I painted the toy box then used an old doona to make a padded top on it.
Here's the finished product! One very funky revamped Toy Box, with padded seat to sit on in their reading nook!
This is their new reading nook area, complete with pinboards. We added the large mirror from our own bedroom to make the area seem larger. I am currently working on making Mackenzi's name for above the other pinboard!
We gave the girls an old TV and DVD player to use on weekends!
Aria discovers the new reading area and is most impressed!!!
Remember the old wall unit? Well we cut a desktop out of MDF wood for it. Gave it a new paint job and got some cheap storage baskets to put on the shelves! Oh and a cool picture of the Monsters too!
So then I got this great idea for the bed...... Yes that's right, I drew a tree with an owl...
Ok, I drew 2 different trees.. I think you're getting the idea now...
Here is the bunks minus the purple bed valance....
I gave the owls some googly eyes just for fun until I find some larger ones!
Remember those stained Holden seats? Here they are, modelled by Zafirah, all purple and fluffy thanks to grandma!!! 🙂
One very tired and happy sleeping Aria!
