Did you know that sometime in the 4 months we’ll be moving?
To that end, we’re trying to find the furniture and belongings that we say “I’m not going to move that”.
My lad has taken that thought to heart and over the past couple of weeks has been working hard to clean his room, and MY oh MY the articles and papers and toys and junk this lad is tossing. 🙂
He even went out and bought two new-to-him shelves for his room.
He’s rather pleased with how it all turned out and said I could post it up on the blog for comments.
No before pictures as well… he wasn’t happy with his room so no pictures allowed of that.
Allow me to walk you through some of his changes.
Where the shelves are placed used to be a large drawer cupboard. It was good for the storage of blocks of wood, stuffies, toy animals and such like, but he’s 11 now, his play takes a somewhat different turn these days.
We moved it out to the book room where I’ll use it for other things. It left him with one shelf which was unacceptable, but YAY!! Mom found some shelves for sale and the previous owner was willing to accept counter offers from a lad!! An even better woot woot!
Top Shelf – Christmas Snowmen, trophy and catapult.
Next Shelf- snake skins (literally) and art projects
Next two – papercraft items and support items
Bottom shelf – can you see how he made an area for his cat to lie down?
He is SO pleased with his just for Milo area. 🙂 and Milo seems to like it too. All we need to do now is add a cat door to his bedroom and Milo will always have access to HIS BOY.
Some of the treasures he wants you to see. All these treasures he made. Some from a kit, the rest all him. 🙂
This unit predominately holds his books along with his 3-d models and a few other treasures.
The tractor is a reminder of his grandfather.
The bottom shelf holds toys he can’t quite get rid of yet, as well as some cat magazines etc.
Model car, items from Kiwi Crates and a bit of this and that.
Treasures again for you to see:
One last area that he wants to show off.
OH!!! I almost forgot!!! He figured out how to hang up his real sword!!!!
My son is hoping you like what he did with his shelf units. Nothing on the floor, everything nicely organized. What more could a tidy boy want eh? Other than… MORE SHELVES!!!! 🙂
