Edith's room is an odd space and their wasn't much storage in the room. Yes there is a big wardrobe but it's filled with my clothes. We had some space let over and it wasn't very big, so I set out to find a tall and narrow cabinet. Luckily I found one through Ikea, Pax Wardrobe. I didn't like the look of it, so I decided to paint it. At our last flat I painted one wall with blackboard magnetic paint. I loved it! But as my husband had to sand down the wall in order for us to paint it back to white before we moved out, I thought it best to not do that again on a wall in our current flat. So I used this opportunity to paint the wardrobe with the magnetic blackboard paint. I used Rost-Oleum Magnetic Chalkboard Paint from Homebase. It's best to paint a couple of coats. The more layers the more magnetic it is. It's the perfect idea for kids as they can use it to draw on and for magnets. Because we live so far away from our families I decided to add velcro to the bottom of the wardrobe so I could stick pictures of our family for Edith to look at. She loves this as she can pull them off herself and stick them on. Hours of entertainment, well maybe not hours:)
Lastily, I wanted a cute little table for Edith's room. She's to the age now where she wants her own table. So I started searching the internet for the perfect table. I wanted a vintage table, but we were on a budget and I was starting to find them a bit pricey. So I decided I would find a cheap table and paint the top of the table with chalkboard paint so Edith could draw on it. I settled on Ikea's Latt table for £17. Yep super cheap. Now it's not the greatest quality, but it will do for now. Again I used Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint, but not magnetic this time.
