This year my son, Hartleigh, decided he wanted his Christmas tree in his bedroom – when he was one or two I got him his own tree so I could do a theme for him and his presents. I actually have three trees altogether, one for my son, one white one, and a big green one – so I decided I would do a surprise room make over for him in his new Christmas theme.
Here are the before photos – as you can see the room was ‘messy and cluttered’ so some of the toys and things are packed away for a couple of months to make room for all the new things (the cup of tea was mine and freshly made btw lol). When they get back out the teddy’s might need to find a better home, because they don’t all fit on the side table – the fish tank has also already been removed off the dresser.
The photos below are the ‘after’ pics. I added a few more touches and the room is now finished. His presents will be on the dresser (I’ll post pics), and he has a Lego advent calendar that will be a surprise gift on the 1st of December.
I wasn’t sure of the theme initially and then found a wreath hanger with a silver star on it and decided to use the star and silver as the theme, then I saw the pack of baubles with the pretty blue and the whole thing was set. It also helps that I think my son is a little star (might be biased).
So down the nitty gritty, how much did it all cost?? As I mentioned above I’ve had the tree for at least 5 years and from memory it was $100 which averages out to $20 a year so far (a great investment). The bauble pack which included the tinsel around the tree was $12 from The Warehouse and that’s not the whole pack! (Definitely a great buy). The star light was $20, and the stars below (which are blue tacked onto the wall) were $5, the star tree topper was $2, and the tinsel on the headboard was $8. Everything else was either already in the room or is from my existing Christmas stuff.
Hartleigh loves his room, he was so excited to see it all finished.
