I scheduled this for yesterday without realizing that I never actually wrote about it haha. With Finley getting a new desk for her birthday, I decided to give her old ‘desk’ a makeover and put it in Penelope’s room.
This is what it looked like when it was in Finley’s room.
This is what it looked like after I finished it. I had ordered the gold triangles to put in her room along with her gold heart but I hated them on the wall so Greg suggested I incorporate them into Penelope’s desk and it worked out really well. I am very happy with it.
Penelope was very excited to have her own desk in her room. And the first few days she spent hours in it working on her printing, writing stories and just drawing.
She quickly found things to accessorize it with and made it her own. However, a few days ago she lost it and all her markers for colouring on her doorframe, the stool, our downstairs door, window and table by the door. Thankfully everything came off except for the doors. Although I haven’t tried that hard to get that off. She has her desk in her room again but still markers. She needs to earn our trust back but not sure how to go about it. I have removed all crayons from our house because those are impossible to get off. Pencil is also a limited use product as she took a pencil and drew on her bathroom sink and toilet seat. It came off in the sink but not on the seat. Not too sure how to deal with this. I thought giving her paper and markers would solve her artistic tendencies but they have not, leaving me even more frustrated.
