It’s me up in here… just making some dreams come true. Just.
As if! Right?!?
But seriously, if I were a little boy with a slew of brothers, what would I dream of?? No, not more Lego’s as the eldest just volunteered. A playhouse/bunk bed for way too much fun and trouble!
And since I live for this crap, Let’s Do It!!
First things first was to prep the room for the awesomeness. And a fugly air-conditioning unit was certainly not in the picture.
Here’s a photo of where I’m planning to put the beds, with the hole patched up. Silly me forgot to get a before, but trust that it was not pretty. For $150 bucks it was gone and this delightful hole was left in it’s place.
Needless to say it took FOREVER to match it all up. But very worth it (and necessary), if I do say so myself!
Phew. Pat on the back. A little juice spilled for the homies.
Now for my favorite part!! Inspiration, of course!! Feast your eyes on these beauties I stumbled across…
I know that a bunch of these are for outdoors, but I just loved “the vibe,” you know. Right now, I’m in the planning stage… formulating some ideas of what will work for the space and how to cram 3 twin beds into a corner. (Without too much temptation for these wild, testosterone fueled beasts to hurt themselves.)
So what am I thinking… well, something kinda like this:
What do you think??
I always, ALWAYS wanted a playhouse and my gosh, I think I would have just died for something like this.
Ahhhh, living through our kids. Same ol story, new day!
Some of you might be thinking, “Why inside the house?? Get those boys outside!” And to that I will say, they have a swing set/playhouse thing already so it didn’t make much sense… also, they are addicted to legos right now, and I need a space I can commit them to and keep Arrow out.
We’ll see how that goes. At least in my mind it’s all looking pretty exciting!!
Happy Creating! Jessica
