Updating Monkey’s bedroom

As you’ve seen recently we now have a new duvet for Monkey, and have added some new wall stickers to his transport themed walls.  We now need to make a decision on his new single bed and a wardrobe to finish updating Monkey’s bedroom.

Anyway, back to the job in hand, updating Monkey’s bedroom!  For his wardrobe we only really need hanging space as his chest of drawers is on the large size and will easily manage tops and jumpers etc for years to come. Something like this would be ideal. It would give Monkey the hanging space he needs now and for the years to come.  Don’t really want to have to buy another wardrobe in a few years time, I want something to last.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Yes, a little extra storage space underneath is always a good idea (though my daughter prefers to use under her bed as a tunnel, so hers remains empty!) A wardrobe, bed, chest covers most of it, I think, though I’ve always loved the idea of a little reading corner/nook, too, and have seen a few gorgeous ideas on Pinterest that I’ll try to incorporate into my two’s rooms at some point.

  2. we bought a mid sleeper so that the boy could keep the floor space for more Lego. I bought a unit which has 6 coloured plastic crates for all the toys and if I find something on the floor while hoovering I just throw it in a box its very useful and of course a bookcase essential!
