The attic room is where my 7 year old resides and because of it's size and shape, it has become difficult finding places to put all of her belongings ie toys, books, shoes.
Below are a couple of pictures that show just how untidy her the floor in the bedroom was looking.
In order to get over this issue, my lovely husband decided to build her a toy box come bench, this way she'd have somewhere to hide away all of her
We already had paint to hand so the things that needed purchasing were :
A couple of sheets of MDF
Hinges for the lids.
It took around an hour to put it all together, would have been quicker if B&Q had cut the MDF to the size we needed, this was minor problem to get over but one we could have done without.
We decided on the colour schem of white and purple because the blinds in Freya's room were a shade of dark purple and we plan on buying white furniture for the rest of the room.
The toybox was made in 3 sections so that we could separate everything inside, makes it all a bit more organised.
And just for fun I thought I'd add in this shot, we all love a good builders bum right ;)
This one bit of furniture totally transformed the room, it made it look cleaner and bigger, more spacious.
We purchased the silver and black cushions from Dunelm Mill and the animal print cushion and the love plaque from The Range.
I know he's my husband but I was really impressed with the end result. You certainly wouldn't be able to buy something of these specifications in the shops. We've got something that is unique and functional.
And it has made the perfect spot to sit and relax. The sun shines through the window making it feel warm and inviting. I'm kind of wishing this was my bedroom now!!
