Sneak Peek: Sebastian’s Room

Sebastian’s room sits on the top story of our three-level home. It’s the only bedroom with an en suite, but it’s a bit of a funky shape – long and narrow – so it wouldn’t work as the master. Lucky boy!

It took a few months to nail down the layout, but I think I’ve finally cracked it.

I want the kids to potentially be able to share this room if/when they stop terrorizing each other so much, and it also serves as our guest bedroom, hence the two beds.
It’s not finished, but it’s getting there. We rent and I don’t think we’re allowed to paint (I haven’t asked, but I’m assuming), so I used decals to get a wallpaper effect. The wall that both beds are up against was looking so big and bare before, and the decals have made a huge difference.

I’ve upholstered the two beds, but they’re still waiting for trim. The bedding is almost a done deal, I just want to add blankets and maybe a throw pillow or two, and I love the military-esque chest of drawers.

I haven’t got much up on the walls yet, but when Room to Grow asked if we’d like to review one of their Teaching Wall Clocks, I knew exactly where it would go.

As you can tell from this not-at-all-staged photo (haha), Sebastian has just learnt to tell the time. He was so excited about the clock and he gets a big kick out of practicing his new skills. I figured it would be useful to know just how late we are running in the mornings.

I also hung the bicycle hooks he had in his old room, so he’s got somewhere at his level to hang his backpack and jackets. The little birds were a gift and the bell is handy for hearing if the kids open the one and only storage cupboard in the house. It’s full of Christmas decorations and camping stuff – nothing that they need to get into!

Still to do:
– Figure out toy storage
– Buy bookcase
– Add trim to upholstered beds
– Wall art
– Buy and hang shelves

I was given a free clock for this post from Room to Grow, but all opinions are my own.
