The Ideal Finishing Touches For Boys’ Bedrooms

Updating my home has become quite a hobby for me now and my latest projects have certainly kept me busy.

We have recently added new touches to Jake’s room because he still had the nursery look and we felt it was time to give him a toddler room.

We have been very lucky to be able to use one room as an office and one as the laundry room but with the impending arrival of our second child, we are going to have to make some big changes to both of these remaining rooms. We have already decided that the smaller room will be the nursery leaving us to alter the office room Continue reading “Preparing Our New Guest Room”
