Bathroom makeover reveal
Sadly the bathroom makeover did not happen in Betsy's bathroom. No it was the dollhouse that received some attention today. It all started with a trip to Spotlight to exchange some wool and buy felt and only felt. And then we took a wrong turn down aisle 23 and ended up in front of these.
A little set of wooden dolls house furniture complete with paint pots and brush. Before I could blink Liongirl was clutching this in her grubby little paws with no chance of extraction. Roboboy had simultaneously snaffled the boys version of a build and paint bomber plane. As Liongirl had already endured a visit to the doctor, nose swabbing for possible influenza and still had a fever over 38 degrees, I felt that in light of the significant sleep deficit I had endured for the last week, it was an entirely reasonable purchase. Straight to work the minute we arrived home.
Once the furniture was dry, installation was arranged and Roboboy set to work on the elevator. And then some staircases were installed and sheets and blankets snipped out of the felt we had chosen.
And then, because he was obviously on a roll, Roboboy decided to undertake a full bathroom makeover. Using every square inch of the sparkly pink paper chosen by Liongirl. Yes, we have been letting him stay up late to watch the block. His faves are Polly and Waz, he even chose their room when they had the bland week. Not entirely sure if he has talents within the design arena.
I think using "The Block" scoring system this would have to be at least a 6 for design and maybe a 4 for execution. Note that he even pink sparkly sheeted the ceiling. Oh yes, and there are matching pink felt towels. I do have some concerns about the thoroughness of the waterproofing though. But it was all complete within about a 30 minute time frame, and surely there are extra points for having a yellow toilet.
