It was also the moment where I sent an urgent plea out to good friends requesting help with the decorating.

Darcey has to sleep in this bedroom in 8 days!!! Using a baby to get you free labour? Hell to the YES.
Due to previo us damage and decay we had to strip this wall right back and our plasterers boarded it up for us and re-plastered. It was an unexpected and unwelcome job but it had to be done and at least it gave us a bag full of wood perfect for kinder on the fire?! Essential to clasp onto any positives you can whilst going through a renovation I think! We decorated the bedroom in Brilliant White by Dulux to counterbalance all the colour that will appear in the soft furnishings, toys and accessories.
It was little nooks like this alcove next to the fireplace that got me excited about the house when we first viewed it.
When we first moved, we used the top of the chest of drawers as a changing station which is why I put the garlands up to provide some interest for Darcey during her nappy changes.
We painted it before knowing whether Betty would be a girl or not, so I also wanted to pick a colour that would work well in a unisex scheme as well as tying in with the navy detail in the curtains.
As I was a self-employed curtain maker before having the children, I found making their curtains out of one Ikea double duvet a simple and cheap hack. I searched high and low for a bedside table as I wanted something that would be stable enough if Darcey stood on it and with hidden storage for all her puzzles. Displaying a collection of artwork above each bed helps to define their own little corner of the room and the prints can be changed up a little as they get older.
I love how much decorating the girls room has given me an excuse to get creative with little makes here and there as well! The book shelves were initially positioned there just temporarily, but as with many things in this house, they stayed, we got used to them, and now we kinda like it like that.
It means the girls can see all their books clearly and access them easily whenever they want. The bedroom has come a long way since the day we started hacking the wall down.
I hosted a viewing here a few months ago, where the prospective buyer gushed how lovely the room was and then proceeded to tell me how it would be perfect for her gym.
I suppose when the thought of it all being lost to a sweaty, neglected exercise bike and a few grubby dumbbells comes to your mind, it makes you reevaluate how much you actually cherish the space that it is.
