Point + Shoot : Where's The Fire?

Hi there Monday!
Don't you come around quickly, you sneaky thing?!

It has been a brilliant and productive weekend around these parts.

Seeing as you asked...
we've loved having friends here for dinner, going to birthday parties
and celebrating 'Neighbour Day' with a fitting street party.
I may just be the only adult in this street without a headache in the morning!

Amongst all that fun, the highlight really has to be moving my 'baby'
from his nursery room and little toddler bed into the much acclaimed
(well, around here anyway) ...
big. boy. bed.room!!!

It's safe to say that a certain little someone is pretty chuffed with the
'fire engine room' as it has been labelled.
(Thankfully, not because of the need for emergency services.)

Yes, Hubby is very happy with his handiwork!
After a serious clean out, a paint job, some skirting boards, a carpet clean
and a morning of furniture assembly, we turned this cluttered, smelly space


 into this


    

A little bare for now - but clean and new(ish).
Honourable mention to patient Grandad for actually doing a lot of the 'work' elements!
 Also, accolades to myself for 'sourcing' all the bits and pieces on a tight budget.
I would like to thank my good friend Ikea for making this pretty simple, really.
I also have a wall decal on it's nee-naw nee-naw way to brighten up the wall.

It's safe to say Magoo is pretty taken with his new digs too.


How was your two day holiday?

Oh just look at him! He's a gorgeous BIG boy now Shar. I think the room looks lovely and perfect to have no clutter and plenty of space to 'add' things... because let's face it kid's are always adding things to their rooms! Sounds like a delightful weekend at your place and you're right, Monday DOES come around far too quickly xo

Miss Mandy said...

Jane said...

Bravo, clever mama! Magoo looks like he's in his element. Has he managed not to fall out of bed? J x

Sonia @ Life Love and Hiccups said...

What a gorgeous little room for an adorable little Magoo. He looks so pleased with himself.
Sounds like you had a fabuous but busy weekend Shar, make sure you are getting some rest there mama too :) Missed you this week. I have been absent as I was preparing for Flynn's party and I am amazed at how much I was rhinking about everyone and what they were up to. xxx
