I’ve been talking about this bunk room for so long, I’m sure you all thought it was a figment of my imagination huh? Well everytime I see it, I wonder if it is! It turned out just so dang cute, and even better than I imagined it would. This post is so picture heavy, so I will try to keep the talking to a minimum this post. I will go into more depth on the individual projects in other posts and link to them here as I go, but for now, let’s just enjoy the pictures of the cutest bunk room I ever did see!
Walking in from the hall this is what you will see.
Handpainted rustic “Welcome to the Bunk House” sign greets you as you enter.
The standout feature in this room is this gorgeous planked wall that we painted gray. It really makes the gorgeous shutters pop.
The stag head I made after I saw the super cute one Target had to offer…but sold out the second it hit the shelves, and when I got home to order it online it was sold out there too…makers gotta make! I love it. 🙂
The picture hangers I made and printed out some cute printables that I found. Perfection.
If you turn to the right you will see the closet. Now remember, three boys share this room so the room’s standard sized closet had to pack a serious organizing punch! I designed how I wanted it, and my husband executed it perfectly. I left the doors off and am just leaving it open. It’s nice to be able to see everything, no one is knocking the doors off the rails and I can know that it is always clean.
We did such a good job of organizing and getting rid of things that we even had an extra shelf for a cute hand painted sign and a moose stuffed animal. I would say that’s pretty amazing for having three sets of everything in here!
The drawers are my favorite, super deep and hold all of their pajamas, underwear, socks and swimsuits. The plastic containers may not be cute, but they do their job of corralling all of the odds and ends.
They each get a shelf for their pants and one pair of shoes. I have all of their other shoes in the wooden crates out of sight to them. That way I am not tripping over shoes, or trying to find matches right before school or church. Best decision ever.
Then you turn around and angels sing. Again, that window…that wall…those beds. In love.
The bunk beds I insisted that the bottom ones were on the floor. I have gotten asked about that a lot. The reason? CLEAN. My boys are pigs. If there is a space under the bed to put candy wrappers, toys, rocks, you name it…it will be there. Even if I was able to keep them from doing that (ha fat chance!) there would still be dust to contend with having hardwood floors (also new to this room). I love having them on the floor, and for little kids who sleep here, no worries about them falling out. No guard rails needed. The super soft cozy Aztec style rug is from Target.
My husband made the bed frame completely out of 2×4’s and plywood, so they were not terribly expensive. He trimmed it in 1×6 boards around the edges and then we painted it that navy blue. I am so excited to have these. We always have an extra bed for a cousin, and really if they are small enough we can easily fit three on top and three on bottom because of the L shape. Sometimes my boys all sleep on the bottom when they’ve made a fort down there.
The light fixture is another favorite feature. It’s an inexpensive outdoor light that we mounted to some of the leftover 1×6 that my husband made into an x shape and painted it the same gray as the wall. This was both for decorative reasons and because it saved us from trying to patch up a tiny bit that would have been visible from the previous light fixture.
The plaid blankets are super soft and the throw pillows I made. I also made the hiking sign. All the little details in this room are so much fun.
Other details I love? The little wooden deer cut out in that gorgeous window.
Also the little lanterns hanging under the top bunks for nightlights. Such a fun touch that my boys have been loving…especially when they make a fort down there.
Then finally you are heading out of the room and you see these cute little things.
These were so inexpensive to make and make such a fun big impact. I LOVE how they turned out.
Looking out you can see a sneak peek of my fall mantel that should be hitting the blog next week.
As a last minute afterthought I brought in my camp chair that I bought at Costco this summer, it’s super cozy and kind of ridiculous (but also amazing) for camping. It matches the room and I keep trying to decide if it will stay here or not, but so far it’s been nice for the boys to have a place to sit and put their shoes on, or to curl up and read a book in the afternoon sun.
So there you have it! That’s the bunk room reveal that I’ve been going on and on about! Next on my reveal list is my daughter’s room and the playroom. Oh so much fun! (Not to mention I’ve been doing some revamping in the kitchen since we’re not ready to remodel it all the way quite yet).
Hope you enjoyed the tour! 🙂
