Fantasy Football Bedroom (Photo Diary)

Football Bedroom

During the summer of 2008, Mummy and Daddy decorated Daddy's old bedroom from when he was a boy, ready for you so that you had somewhere bigger to play. You had been sleeping in the nursery, which was Auntie Jessica's old room and Mummy and Daddy thought that we may need to keep the nursery for the future in case a brother or sister came along.

Daddy wanted to make you a Gillingham Football Club room, but Mummy was worried that you would grow up and not like football! I said that she was crazy, all boys take after their Daddy's! We had both seen a brilliant football bedroom idea in a book called, Creative Spaces for Kids so decided to model your new bedroom on that, complete with a changing bench and football goal built into the fireplace. Daddy decided to take the idea further and wanted astroturf instead of carpet! Although he did get carried away, he knew when to stop, the floodlight and advertising hoarding ideas he had were sensibly scrapped!!!

Mummy and Daddy took photos all the way through the project so that you would be able to see how your room was made. Daddy was really suprised by the red as he had only ever known the room to be a various shade of blue!
