oh no, we lost the roof in the storm . . .

Greetings all,
In all this wild & windy stormy weather, the children were stuck inside & we lost the roof off the house . . . the GingerBreadHouse that is!!  It remained untouched for long enough, then suddenly the children had a penchant for gingerbread.  The house smells glorious!!  Should take a week to get through the rest.
 Today the boy's bed was finally ready to collect from Harvey Norman.  I think this style will last him well into his late teens, i'm especially thrilled i managed to knock a further $90 off the sale price!!
 After years of ensemble base & mattress beds, i chose wooden beds for everyone, with slat bases so i can FINALLY vacuum all the way under . . . but my son clearly has other ideas on how to use the space.
 Love his Ooshka by The Red Thread.
 The room is coming together, but i think the Dr Suess mobile might have to go & put some pictures up on the wall??
& yes, he's still under the bed putting the ramp for his Skull Fortress together - i think he'll sleep there tonight!! 
Poor bloke inherited some marks on the carpet from his twin sisters (former tenants of this room) so what a blessing those $12 IKEA round rugs are!!  There is more work to do on the room, like adding an oilcloth covering on the thrifted retro coffee table & the Designer's Guild wooden trunk at the end of his bed.  Stay tuned for more boy's room renovations soon, with my live in handyman - handsome soldier who i've just tallyed up . . . has 16 weeks leave.  Yippee.  Love Posie

At our house the $12 ikea rug is the "thinking spot" ... a place to be sent to reflect on how things could be handled better.

I was really worried for a second, roofs do come off sometimes.... My girls like to use the space under their bed to hide all their mess when I ask them to clean their room..... Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

Your right those Ikea round rugs can hide a multitude of sins.

I was worried when I read the title of your post - but happy to see it is only the Gingerbread house and not your real house! Love the white chair in your son's room - was looking at buying one from King Furniture for myself not too long ago (a replica of course!) but then decided I would go with French decor instead! xx
