    So i have decided to make a start with decorating the other bedroom in my house for my boy Jak to have as an actual kids bedroom for him instead of it just being a plain, spare room that he uses when staying with me. :p I have started to empty all the stuff out of the room. As you will notice in the photos, the wallpaper has already been mostly stripped off as i done that a wee while ago. :p

    Decorating this room was delay or a short bit, i was hoping to have it wallpapered by now, but hey, i will get alot done today. :D The reason it has been delayed is because i had to put shelves up in the cupboard that was in this room. I wasn't originally going to do this, but when i got started and has to finish it. :p I will post post of the finished cupboard with new shelves in it when i have finished painting it today. :D
