We wanted to create a fun bedroom that also doubled as a playroom for Master T (3) & Master K (1). To give us space we opted for a bunk bed with a trundle (for sleepovers) and built-in drawers in the stairs & under the trundle. The king single bunk bed was an Ebay bargain costing under $500 (without shipping). It has a stars & moon theme that won’t date as my boys grow older.
To cope with the increasingly artistic boys, I’ve installed corkboards to display their artwork, which cost me $24 from the Reject shop.
For storage I bought a tiered shelf from Bunnings & filled it with little froggy baskets that were only $5 each. The bookshelf houses books & larger toys. We replenish our books from the library for free.
The curtains, wall murals & dark bookshelf have been recycled from my son’s nursery to help create his new space. The wall murals were about $150, are about 3 years old and will last for another few years yet.
As most of the room items have been accumulated over the years, I’ve not limited myself to a theme so you’ll spot a dinosaur doona, car/truck book-ends, froggy baskets and jungle wall murals!
Perhaps what ties it together is my obvious penchant for bright green which I feel adds a fresh & fun mood to the room. Mirrored wardrope doors & lots of white keep it airy & spacious while the navy blue has a calming effect.
