Then there is the space layout issues. Now that the baby is no longer a baby and he really is getting too big for a toddler bed, I would like to put up a bunk bed. Although I would love to have two twin beds in the room it just won't be the best fit. (I wonder why these rooms of 1950's homes are always just a bit too small? And I also wonder how the sweet old woman that lived here before fit nine children in here!?! NINE!)
I've been searching for bunks and like this one from IKEA for the price and the fact that I know I would paint it.
So fine and dandy, we want a bunk bed. Blah, blah, blah....what's the big deal now? Well, the big deal is that the bunk bed will cover up part of a window no matter how I place them in there. Thinking all is lost and it will just have to be that way or the highway, I was looking through my folder of inspiration pictures and found my solution!
It's so simple! Add a full length curtain to the wall and window. Why didn't I think about that? Tee-hee! Tah-hah!! I had completely forgot that I had already figured this out before!
Not only does this solve my window problem, let's look at how fabulous this room is! I love how everything goes together without going together. The colors are all pulled out of the one pillow on the bottom bunk. I adore the orange bunk. I love the pattern of the rug, the fact that the curtains are green, the fanstic art on the wall, the bedding and the great polka dot sheets. I like how there is a band of charcoal colored paint along the top of the wall. I even think that that chair is wonderful but know that would not work for us. Be still my heart, it's wonderful.
I see a little green and red in this room. Think I can convince my boys to go for something like this?? *sigh*
