Ariel’s post last week about turning her closet into a nursery got me thinking… how else can you creatively use the space you have when you have kids?
My husband and I currently live in a small 3 bedroom house, and we hope to have at least three children. Who we’ll have to cram into one room. The solution for us is going to lie in the liberal use of bunk beds and, as it turns out, that means way more fun anyway! Check out these cool (and totally copy-able, if you’ve got skills like that) bunk bed designs and kid’s rooms:
You really have to check out the original post to appreciate the full genius of this furniture hack. Turning an Ikea bunk bed into two lifted beds with desk space beneath is so genius it makes my head hurt a little. Also, those colors are awesome.
Ok, I’m fully aware that both this and the space shuttle bed cost more than a cup of coffee. If you have the ability to buy these, cool. If not, no one’s saying you can’t borrow their ingenious ideas, are they?
If you’ve got time, a hacksaw, skills, and access to a Home Depot, who’s to say your bunk beds can’t be almost as fun as your kids are? Now, the trick will be to get them to actually sleep in those things…
You want even MORE rooms and nurseries to drool over? YOU GOT IT:
