“I wish for a bigger bedroom”March 23, 2015
Alison has been complaining about the size of her bedroom for a while, after all she has the box room and her sister has a big bedroom but granting a wish like this is not easy. Unless we move house we are stuck with a small box room so it was time to think outside the box (excuse the pun) and find a way around the problem.
Alison has not had her room decorated for a few years and she currently has a mid sleeper which she used to be able to fit underneath to play but she is a lot taller than she was two years go so now the space under her bed is wasted but it gave me an idea. Elizabeth had a high sleeper but hers is a cabin bed with a desk and wardrobe but that wouldn’t make Alison’s room any bigger but a high sleeper frame would.
I decided to pull together a pinterest board with my ideas on.
As well as the wardrobe and toy storage she has asked for her very own bookcase so she can have a reading corner, I love that she has a passion for reading so as well as a new bookcase I wanted to treat her to some new books too. We sat down together on The Works website looking at all the books and instead of the 10 for £10 I was going to buy her we ended up buying 20! We just couldn’t choose and they were so cheap. Here is a pinterest board showing the books she chose.
