So today the bedroom makeover began. I cleared and cleaned the room ready for the decorator tomorrow then donned the sunglasses in preparation for the purple onslaught awaiting me and started to re-vamp Thomas' bedside cabinet.
The idea to paint the drawers came to me last night at 3am when I was still awake absolutely shattered but unable to sleep. These sleepless nights are getting on my nerves. I go to bed tired yet within 5 minutes I'm wide awake. Of course this morning, I had to force myself to get up.
Anyway back to the bedroom. I think the last time we decorated Thomas' room he would have been about 5. Back then mummy knew best and I chose blue for the bottom half, white for the top and a football border and bedding to finish it off. We bought a wooden wardrobe and a blue bedside cabinet.
Six years later Thomas has his own ideas about such things, hence the purple. Anyway, I did 2 drawers and have to say I actually really liked it.
Then because I can't help myself, I upped the ante. I decided the 3rd drawer would be black, then got really carried away and painted the wooden unit as well because the drawers with the wood really didn't look right.
I actually think it's OK for a boys room; not something I could sleep with but then sleep evades me quite a lot lately, so who knows.
Today, my little boy blue has become a purple and black, about to go to High School young man. Where did those years go?
