So, here's a reminder of what the room looked like before:
|Possibly the most uninspiring space ever.|
We've added the teepee, some bedding and a bedside cabinet but still need to dress the walls with artwork etc and the stuffed animal trophy heads to complete the safari theme.
The bedside cabinet is painted in blackboard paint so Archie can literally draw on the furniture.
|oops - pantless model!|
There's also a blackboard wall which is currently in progress:
Once the second coat goes on, these two squares will be finished with frames, making it an instant/changeable gallery. Initially I planned to paint out the whole lower half of the wall, but I'm glad I've gone for something more discreet.
The carpet won't be replaced until much later when all the bedrooms are done at once. Also, I really wanted to paint this room a fun colour, but I've resisted (for now).
It's a little bit retro - but Archie seems to like it.
