Hey All! I am pleased to announce that my boys room is FINALLY 100% finished! A few years ago I started my little boys’ plane themed room. I have always known how to use tools, (construction background) but furniture building is actually a hobby I picked up a few years ago. One of my very first projects was a bunk bed for my boys. Let’s just say, it was a classic learning experience. You know the old saying “measure twice, cut once”? Well, I am a little too impatient for said motto. Somehow my dimensions were off and I made the bunk bed a little too small for a standard size mattress. Whoops! Well, I was desperate and just MADE the mattress fit. As a result we have absolutely destroyed their mattresses over the past few years. The kids were past due for new mattresses, but that meant building another bed!? Ugh. Sometimes, even I need to accept that I cannot do it all and I need to get reinforcement from the professionals. As you all know I have been ridiculously busy remodeling a home and building a shop, but the kids NEEDED a new bed, and I didn’t have the time… So allow me to introduce you to my lifeline, City Furniture.
After heavily considering it, we opted for the twin over twin bunk bed with a trundle pullout! We have little cousins that like to have sleepovers and it is nice to have an extra bed readily available. Because let’s be real, who ever had a good nights rest on an air mattress.
They had several options that we considered, but I thought that the white was just what this space needed. I wanted it to be light and brighten the space. Ultimately we opted for the “Lauren” bunk bed.
It was the perfect fit ! Here is a view of the far side of the room. I just love this little nook consisting of an up-cycled bookcase, a tent made by yours truly, and a big comfy reading chair inherited from a friend. The far wall consists of a crate dresser I made for my kiddos to store all their toys. (I built this after I had a few years of furniture building under my belt, and you can get the build plans here.) As well as a world map I painted on a flat sheet!
Here is one more satisfying last shot of the kids’ room!
There is so much satisfaction in knowing that …
- A.) The space is “check off my list”DONE!
- B.) The room is beautiful and highly functional.
- C.) It was done at a very affordable price.
- And last but not least my kids LOVE it! I am calling that a WIN! Thanks so much for reading along!
