I start looking at pictures for Throw Back Thursday and can while away quite a few hours looking at them all!
I thought I would show you a couple of projects we did in the Boys rooms during 2006, when they were younger.
This was Eldest’s room, typical little boys room (extremely messy!) and we decided to swap the Boys rooms over as Eldest was going to Senior School and Youngest needed more room for playing (he was in the smaller room). This was in June of 2006 and the Boys were 11 and 7.
This is the built in desk DH made for him. Already for the new school year and homework!
A comfy chair to sit and read in.
So we gave him a more grown up room, albeit in the smaller room, but he loved it and this is his room still today, well with me camping in it as a sewing room.
This was Youngest’s and yes he still has as much stuff!!!! But he really was running out of room.
Here is Youngest in his Train Carriage Bed reading. The end of the bed was solid but with a window cut out so he could see the trains running on the track. All train carriages need some steps to get into them!
Youngest’s desk, which he still has today.
Here is Youngest’s room when we had finished. We had asked him what he wanted in his room and his only request was a bed off the floor. Now Eldest had had a loft bed but that had gone a few years prior and again as he got bigger he outgrew it, so I came up with the idea to make a bed like a railway carriage (they both loved trains and the big trainset was in this room), so I drew the style, DH did the calculations and woodwork and I painted it. He loved it and it stayed like that until he went to Secondary School five years later.
I do so love looking at photographs and especially seeing the Boys when they were little.
The Country is voting today in our General Election to see who will be the party to take us through Brexit and beyond and who will be Prime Minister! Oh Boy!
I have had a so, so day (unfortunately not sew, sew!!!) and Treacle is on the mend I think. Tomorrow is house jobs day and grocery shopping and Girlfriend is coming round for a cup of coffee so I am looking forward to that.
Happy Thursday everyone.
