The project needed to stick to a pretty slim budget and Ikea was offering up some great solutions. This gave me an idea for a challenge: design the space using Ikea products whenever possible, with the goal of creating a high end look. It was a fun challenge which I think was pretty successful!
If I were to match a vehicle to this room, it would be the Land Rover parked down the street! Apparently it has driven the world.
On the days something new got done in the room I had a lot of fun announcing this news to Max, as he got off the bus. Once home, we'd all run upstairs to take a look. He always had something great to say about the various additions. He simply loved my working on his room! Thanks Max, it was a pleasure.
