A couple of weeks ago myself and Daddy Chambers decided to turn our spare room in to a playroom. The dining room was completely over loaded with toys and with Christmas imminent, it was only going to get worse.
Not wanting to be without a bed for guests we offloaded the double bed from the room and invested in a Hemnes Daybed from IKEA. I’m in love with it. It’s essentially a couch for the kids on a day-to-day basis but is also a single bed and pulls out in to a really comfortable king size bed.
We also invested in a TV for the room and transferred our Apple TV in to the playroom so Aidan has access to all his favourite cartoons. We got a great Black Friday bargain on the TV; just €99.99 for a 32 inch flatscreen from Carphone Warehouse.
We’re almost finished it and already my pair, particularly Aidan, loves it. I need to pick up some of those foam floor mats to ease the pain of wobbles and falls. The ones in Smyth’s are quite small, does anyone know where I can get bigger ones without having to buy multiple packs?
With an indoor trampoline, a dollhouse, a push-along train and God knows what else, on the Santa list, I think this ‘new’ room just might save my sanity!
