Shared Boys Room (2 & 3 years)
I took photos of the boys’ room a few weeks ago and I’m finally getting around to posting about it. The boys started sharing a room when my middle (Frederick) was about 18 months and my oldest (Leopold) was 2.5 years. Both boys moved out of the crib when they turned a year old and they were comfortable sleeping on regular beds. This made the transition to bunk beds very easy. I’ll post more about the logistics of room sharing soon.
The bed is the Kura reversible bed from Ikea. It’s actually just meant to be a single lofted bed, but we put a mattress on the floor to make it a bunk bed. A regular bunk bed typically has the bottom bed raised off the floor and we thought that would be too high for Frederick since he was pretty young at the time. If you Google the “Kura” bed there are a bunch of creative things people have done with them!
We purchased a bed tent for the top, which is also from Ikea. Our tent has small stars on it, but they have since discontinued that model and they have plain color tents that I’ve linked to here. Leopold loves sleeping on the top in his own little, secluded area.
My mother-in-law made the quilts for each of their beds! She’s super talented and has made the kids several quilts. I liked the look of the PBK color block quilts and she modeled them after that. I think they turned out wonderful!
The dresser and bookshelf were some old pieces of furniture that we painted…or rather, I had other people paint for me since I was preggo 🙂 I found the red toy bin at Home Goods a couple years ago. I bought the play mat on Amazon here. I looked at a few different mats and I really like the thickness of the one we ended up with.
