Oh, the beadboard. My nightmares are now made of beadboard. No joke. Images of beadboard falling from the ceiling are in my nightmares. I’ll have an update on the beadboard coming soon. The truth is I didn’t have updates out in time for weeks 2-5 because I traveled for the first week, so there were no updates. And the next two weeks were figuring out the beadboard fiasco. And well, week 5 was spent ignoring the room because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep going. (If you missed the first post on the fall One Room Challenge you can see more here.)
BUT the girls need a bedroom. As much as I didn’t want to admit it, they really do. So after receiving word that we were going to have an extra week for completing the space I decided to keep going. Below are updates about some of the components of the room. And I’m putting together a post on the whole beadboard fun to share with you this week.
the bunk beds
The bunk bed by Viv + Rae is a double bed above a double bed. I was adamant that it needed to be a big enough bed to last the girls through teenage growth spurts, and I found out the hard way that finding a bunk bed with double beds on the top and bottom are hard to come by! But this one has style and meets the space requirements. And the bonus? it can be separated into two separate double beds! (Note: This image is from Wayfair. I can’t show you the beds at the moment because the room is still recovering from beadboard.)
I had originally picked out this laundry hamper from Anthropology. And while I love that it is white and has casters I realized it gave more space than I wanted for the dirty laundry. So we went with this hamper from Wayfair. And as a bonus – it completely collapses flat for future storage.
The desks are MICKE desks from Ikea, found here. They were the right size with the right amount of storage. However, the basic glossy white wasn’t the look we were going for in the vintage glam room, but a couple coats of chalkboard paint fixed that up! Now the desk has a black matte finish which is perfect for the room. Knobs and pulls came from Target, giving it the eclectic look I want in the space.
A lot is happening in this room at the moment so be sure to check back soon. If you have a room you want to update or remodel, but aren’t sure where to start, you’ll want to check out our services page!
