Update – Aiden’s room – Before and After Photos

A quick photo update before bed as I’m shattered, as usual!

Aiden’s room before



After –

Apologies for the rubbish photo, I forgot to check it before moving on to the next one. It was unlike me, I usually take 2 or three to make sure I get a good one!



The ottoman was going to stay there under his desk so I was going to paint it dark blue but I’ve moved onto the landing now so I think I’m going to paint it cream and put a new green cover on the top to match the carpet.

I’ll be back, tomorrow hoepfully, with before and after photos from the girl’s room 🙂
