The Mister wallpapered one wall as a 'feature' (I like my feature walls as you may have noticed from my previous posts when we decorated our room and the girls room) and repainted the ceiling (white) and the walls (two shades of blue, no red this time) and repainted the wood work with gloss. We moved J's bed to the far corner, shifted the shelves into their toy cupboard & have moved the chests of drawers to the wall where J's bed was.
RAST unfinished pine chests, and will be doing the same with the other two ASAP, so their drawers are a little higgledy piggledy at the moment (which I haaaaate) but eventually they will be swapped. The other chests have just had it and desperately need replacing but the ones we picked up are only £20 each so it won't cost the Earth, they're very sturdy & well made considering the low price, I really do love IKEA for that sort of thing!
We'll also be adding a LAIVA desk & ALRIK chair to the room, primarily for J as a space to sit and do his homework. Above his bed we're adding a lamp so he can read if he fancies it, and a small shelf next to his bed for his alarm clock & such like. Next to L & H's bunk bed we're going to put up their framed certificates and favourite pictures (like the one of them with Steve Backshall). They also have a six hanger wall hook for their dressing gowns etc which is decorated in a R/W/B 'mod' style and two canvas prints that I found in the sale a while ago. Their bedding sets are also all in various R/W/B designs.
I would also really love to have their names in wooden letters somewhere in the room too, not sure where yet but I think that it would look really nice (I want to do the same in the girls bedroom) so I will be having a scout for some nice plain wooden letters to paint/decorate. So there you have it, our recent decorating adventure. It's not quite finished yet but as good as and we are pleased with it, and the boys love it which is what is important.
The bedroom is complete now with the exception of their new TV but that can wait. We've replaced their bedding with these fantastic bargain sets from Dunelm Mill - Union Jack for J, cars for H and robots for L.

What sort of themes/colour schemes do you have for your kids bedrooms? Will you be doing some decorating to freshen things up for the new year?
