Can you believe it’s back to school time? Wow.
My girls still have like a week and a bit to go, until we’ll be back to the routine of getting up early, homework, studying and all that. I’m a little sad, because it means the summer is almost over. Well, the time OFF that is. Because the heat will go on for a while longer. The summer they’ve been waiting for all year, basically, has come to an end and they will have to go to school all day and I know it will be hard for them. I know as well, that they “need” to go back, because it does get boring for them after such a long time off. Oh Changes! I love them but I do get a little melancholic about them too. Weird.
So, to make the whole back to school – end of summer – thing a bit nicer, a bit more fun, a bit happier and exciting, I’ve gotten my little, big, girl, who will be going into grade 1, a desk for her room. From Ikea. I know, I just can’t help it. As much as I love to upcycle old or used stuff, I love Ikea and what you can get for your money and do with it. Plus, it’s just so hot out still, that I am not in a big-paint-project- mood right now. So this is what I came up with. A super fast, easy and yet cute project to personalize my daughters Ikea desk.
I bought the Ikea Micke Desk in white. Amelie thought it was “boring” lol.
So basically, all I did was decorate it with stickers from the Dollarstore and also Ikea, and Washi Tape. Yes. I know. Too easy probably. But I love how it turned out.
And most important: Amelie is so proud of it and loves it too! She sits at her desk and organizes the drawer with stuff she “needs” and I think, I made the back to school dread a little bit nicer and fun to look forward to for her. And that’s all I wanted to do!!! Mission accomplished!!!
