Made-to-measure curtains, made especially for my little man. The fabric I used is Cath Kidston Star in Stone, and I had 3m- £18 per metre, and peanuts really for the blackout lining from eBay. All-in-all they cost around £60 I think, though I paid £36 for the workshop. They're just perfect for his room, making it feel so warm and cosy.
We have done this pretty thiftily really. I put some John Lewis birthday vouchers towards a new cot bed, and we got the union jack rug in the sale. My mother gave me the chairs- they were hers as a child, then mine and now Albie's. We were given the changing unit, and D already had the little chest of drawers and globe lamp. So we just bought the red table and toy storage from Ikea and painted the walls 'Egyptian Cotton'. Now, a word about Egyptian Cotton. It came out a dark beige on the walls- YUCK. So we mixed in rather a lot of white and created this pale putty off-white colour. It feels so bright and fresh now! Not that you can tell from my bad photography.
