Remember this post back here? Well, since then we've been working slowly towards getting Aiden a room of his own. After he painted, he moved his desk in (we got him that early in the school year) and has been using the space for homework and hanging out. Since he loves the Arizona Cardinals, he wanted a red and black color scheme. I threw in the gray to make it not so harsh. I thought one of the big Expedit shelving units from IKEA would be a perfect storage solution for him and it came in this beautiful red gloss finish. So, that was our purchase in March.
Then, because I can only do this as finances allow (no going into debt!) we waited until last weekend to be able to get his bed. This would really make the room his own. Back to IKEA we went, and we got the Hemnes bed, which matches his desk.
It's so fantastic the way he can just do all the work. (tee hee)
He's such a good worker and a methodical guy.
And I love that he'll include his little brother.
When I got home from work this morning, I got to see his hard work! He said he slept so well on his new bed. It's a Queen, which makes a huge difference to this long and growing-longer boy who's been in a twin top bunk up until now.
We still need to get real bedding (a comforter/quilt and shams) and curtains. But that will have to wait for another month.
