I had this nifty idea that for E’s birthday I would get her a desk and chair for her room, but I was worried she might think it was boring. I did try to get to IKEA, but the car had other ideas. I had to get something so Officeworks was the closest thing I could find. Success! I got a larger desk for the same money, and a gorgeous pink chair. A quick stop at the dollar store and she now has a whole ream of paper to draw on, new textas and other drawing goodies. A few of her favourite dolls even hid in the drawers to surprise her! Hubby took one look at the flatpacks and declared he would stay home to help. Wow … I am so glad he did! It took us 5 hours to put it all together, get her room reorganised and blow up balloons!
It was torture waiting for her to get home from school! I couldn’t wait for to unwrap her desk (yes … I wrapped it, using some throws!). I lurked in her room waiting for her to come in. Success! The balloons, the chalk pen message on her mirror and the new layout … she loved it all! Kudos to the lovely Yvette for the balloon/chalk pen idea!
Sure … the room isn’t finished yet, but I’ll share more pics as I get stuck in and declutter & organise this room further. Right now, though … I think it’s time for cake!
