Building the kid’s room was a lot of fun. I involved them in the process as much as I could so that they would enjoy it too. I always try to include the kids, so that they are learning skills even if they don’t know it. Working on a building project for them, allowing them to pick colors and curtains, gets them even more excited about it.
The first part of the kid’s room is their beds.
Next step was to add a bookshelf at the foot of my boy’s bed.
And another set of shelves at the foot of my girl’s bed. And yet another set of shelves between the beds to create a “dresser” for clothes storage.
I used the shelves all around the beds as posts to create a “top bunk” to store toys and for the stuffed animals to “sleep.”
Having the “bunk” also made the beds perfect “prince and princess” beds. Each kid picked out cheap fabric to make curtains around their beds. We live in a tiny house, so any little bit of privacy we can create is very valuable.
Looking at the pictures, I realized that I may have missed a couple things. There is a broken “lamp” and a big spot I didn’t paint, but I’ll get there. The kids don’t even notice.
