I will admit I may have jumped the gun on decorating my son’s upstairs bedroom. After finishing the bathroom, I was anxious to get the rest of the room done and bought and painted this (full-sized) metal bed:
The bedroom is long with a little window nook, and the furniture arrangement tripped me up a little. Once he had a bed and a dresser (with a desk and bookcase in the nook), there was still a lot of room left that felt like wasted space.
Room before closest-to-bathroom renovation:
This will eventually be the room shared by both of our boys, but for now, it’s where the girls hang out (and usually sleep on weekends), where school is played, where rainbow loom bracelets are made and where wresting/bed jumping occurs (although they swear it doesn’t). It’s also where my parents stay when they visit.
(They’re made by Skyline, and I ordered them from Joss & Main.)
I wish I had two of the orange Nate Berkus comforters, but they’re no longer available at Target. :( So, he’ll just have to live with mismatched bedding on the two beds while I figure that out. . .
The two-bigger-beds-solution just makes more sense for the size and shape of the room. Plus, I’m sure that when we have two full-sized boys sleeping up there, they’ll appreciate the extra space. I think this set-up can work and not completely look like a hotel room. Here are a few good examples:
I’m making this my project for the Summer. More to come. . .
