Bunkin' Out

With a 3rd baby on the way and just 3 bedrooms in our current apartment, Brandon officially lost his study...we had to make way for the BUNKBEDS! Jemma has been SOOO excited for these to come.

They arrived the middle of last week and Brandon and I put them up over the course of a couple of nights. The overall transition has been really fun! I love decorating, and this new bedroom was gonna be FUN!






Here are just a few shots of Carter and Jemma under the bunkbeds the morning they had helped me move all their stuff out of their Old bedroom and into the New bedroom...












Jemma got to choose her bedspread...are you surprised she chose hot pink? It's reversible and is purple on the other side. Carter, on the other hand, got a blue one - it too is reversible - lime green (Mom, I know you're smiling:) on the other side.
Jemma's artwork is above the Craigs List find dresser...I only had to paint the drawers and we chose to replace the knobs. They were just wood before and kinda banged up. Thank you Fred Meyer for the lamp on ClEaRaNcE and Target for the Piggy Banks!!! (Jemma was keeping her money in a cup before...no big deal, but when I saw the pigs...they immediately went into the shopping cart:)

Jemma and Carter on the top bunk.


I have to showcase their pillow shams because other than the curtains, they were the only things I sewed in the room...and with good reason! These babies were TIME CONSUMING! Thank you Alison for the "Raw Edge Circle Quilt" idea. (You should check out her blog!!! Super cool stuff!) There were so many different fabrics in these that I could let Jemma pick out some of the fabric all by herself!!! (She thought that was pretty cool.)
Jemma's Sham...this morning, Brandon threw the other one on Jemma's bed to which she responded, "No Dad! That one's not mine! That's Carter's! Mine has PINK in it."


Carter's Sham...see, no pink. Deffinitly more BOY.

The kiddos loadin' up their piggy banks with all the loose change from our change bottle.

Jemma and Carter spent their first night in their new room last night (that was also Carter's first time in a Big Boy Bed!!!) and they did GrEaT! Love It!

Love the bunkbed! We're thinking of getting our girls one but I can't find one I like. Where did you get it and can it have a normal size twin mattress? You are so creative. I love the colors and especially the piggy banks :)

Jennifer said...

Hey Linzi! We bought it off target.com and yes, they will fit a standard size twin mattress. Good luck in your search! :)
