Before and After (well nearly)!

Jasons' room before we moved in.
The first room we decided to tackle was Jasons' room.
He's been working really hard to help us with this move and has offered to do so much to help us with this change of lifestyle that we thought the least we could do to make his life more comfortable was to get his room ready, (well that and the thought that he could play all his weird and wacky computer games in the privacy of his own space and leave the main television available for us).
First we had to really clean it, it had been the habitat for SO many spiders, but after a good wash down and a very thorough hoover it looked quite presentable, so the bed went up on moving day and comfort from the first night was guaranteed.
Hubby assembles bed.
Then the decorating could begin, it was just a bit of filler, a bit of a rub down and then lots of brilliant white emulsion for the ceiling, brilliant white satin for the woodwork and our very own special mix for the walls (10 litres of Dulux brilliant white satin emulsion mixed with .5 litre of Dulux 'Cookie Dough' satin emulsion) which we have called 'Milky Latte' so named because of its colour resemblance to the gallons of the coffee we drink!

Jasons' huge new wardrobe.

Then Jason could fill his huge wardrobe with all his clothes, books and all the accumulated stuff a univertsity graduate aquires in his time away from home.
The 'Almost Finished' room.
Well that's it for now, the room is fresh, bright and just awaiting the finishing touches, curtains, Jasons' bits and pieces that are still in boxes and his lovely assorted posters and souvenirs from our trip to Italy, bought specifically with a new room in mind.
As you can see Toby the cat approves!
