Bunk Beds Complet!

I have been wanting to build some bunk beds in my boys room for some time now.  I have had two of my boys in this really big bedroom now for almost three years.  I hope I don't regret putting three boys in  one room now.  There is plenty of room for all of them, I was just worried one would feel left out to not have the cool bunk bed room.  I asked my super talented, creative brother to help me out with this project.  Not only did he contribute awesome design ideas but he built the whole thing.  All of it, even did the electrical work!  He never ceases to impress me with his talent.  I really loved having him at my house for a  week and a half.  I am going to miss him, aside from being super talented and creative he is also very helpful and fun to be with.

the bunk beds


All framed and some new lighting


Getting ready for paint


Next step ladder, railing and shelves out of old crates


Ta Da....  The finished project


How awesome is this ladder and railing system?  Seriously, Dallen is just full of so many good ideas.  This was all him.  I was so nervous about having a rail.  I just think they are really unattractive.  If you know me I am concerned about how it looks and the husband is concerned with the safety and functionality.  I guess we make a good team. I am so happy with how it turned out, it functions and looks great!


I new I wanted to put old crates on the wall for shelves but Dallen had this brilliant idea to pul lights in each of them.  The lights we got from Lows. They are really awesome, you can dim them and turn them on with a touch button.  I think this is one of my favorite things about the bed.


The room is coming together. The boys could not be more excited and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out.  Thanks Dallen, You did a FANTASTIC job!!!

I love your map wall. I REALLY love the big binoculars. Do you know where I could buy some?

Thank you so much! I got the binoculars from Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago. I am not sure if they still have them. Maybe someone would be selling them on Craig's list.

The design that you have in the bed area was truly wonderful. It's like you're ready to travel and explore the world. The railings and the ladder on the bunk bed reminds me of pirate ships. I'm sure that other readers have thought of that too! Hehe. You did a fantastic job on this one. :)
