As promised, progress shots of the house, beginning with Cohen's room. This was Cohen's room before and during the renovations. 
And this is Cohen's room now -

Looking through Cohen's bedroom door.

The light shade is a Bakelite reproduction. The little white desk was made by my Grandfather and ours as children. The little wooden green chair I found on ebay. The play kitchen is from Ikea and the hobby horse was a gift brought at a craft fair.

Cohen's big boy bed is from Ikea, painted white. As is his step stool/bedside table (which needs to be painted). His ripple blanket and stuffed toys are Mama made, except for the knitted teddy which was a thifted find. The chest of drawers was also ours as children. The mat is from Spotlight.

Clothes, book and toy storage. The shelves are from Ikea, the Silkyoak wardrobe was another ebay buy for $60. The print on the wall is Van Gogh's 'Cherry Blossom', brought from the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam before Cohen's birth and put away for our first born. There is still a box somewhere, with the rest of Cohen's books in it.

The skirting boards still need to be painted with enamel and curtains made for the windows. The walls are still a little bare and the floor could do with a rug. But I think it's getting there and Cohen certainly loves his new, bigger bedroom.
