Well, Jonathan and I are back home in Kentucky, and I will be honest that I am missing the warmer west coast weather. :(
But it is good to be back home with the whole family, and I am itching to get some projects done around the house. I think the warm west coast weather has given me “spring fever” because I am wanting to clean out the whole house and freshen things up!
However, the part of the house that I am focusing on, Adam and Eli’s room, does not just need a “freshening up,” but needs a complete makeover!
We have literally done nothing to it since we built it. It was part of the new addition to our house. In our new addition, we have finished our master bedroom and bath, Jonathan and Luke’s room, and the boys’ upstairs bathroom. But we have not touched Adam and Eli’s room!
Now, I always try to keep it real here on my blog, so hold on to your horses! These are actual pictures of Adam and Eli’s room!!! (Except the mattress isn’t in the floor anymore.)
Please do not pin to Pinterest! :)
Right before Christmas, we built bunk beds for the boys, and we didn’t have railing on the top bunk, so Eli slept on the floor.
I was going to share the DIY of how we built the bunk beds on my blog, but guess what? I don’t like them.
They did not turn out the way I had envisioned them, plus it was hard for Eli to get in and out of the top bunk. We also did not leave enough room on the sides of the beds to tuck any blankets in which made it a nightmare to make.
There was a hole in the wall because we had to fix a leaking pipe from the boys’ shower before Christmas. Cy has finally patched that hole up, but we still haven’t sanded or painted it yet.
So, it’s pretty obvious that this space is in need of a little makeover-love, right?
Well, I am sooooo excited because we are starting to tackle it THIS WEEK! For now, the plans are to remove the bottom bunk and leave the top bunk as a “loft.” And then I am going to put two twin beds on either side of the window on the opposite wall. I have been looking at Goodwills and Habitat stores for some beds I could paint, but haven’t found anything yet. I’m debating on DIY’ing some beds. Also, I’ve started getting some stuff to decorate with, and I will share the color scheme with you tomorrow.
I’m hoping to have this space completed in a couple of weeks. Adam and Eli are ECSTATIC!
