Big Boy Room: Bunk Beds!

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday season! Christmas has come and gone in what seems like a blink of an eye compared to how long it took to get here. This year proved to be very hard waiting for Christmas day. I felt the same excited and anxious feelings a child feels as they anticipate the gifts under the tree. I was so excited to give my son his big gift, new bunk beds! It was hard, but SO worth the wait. 

My husband, sister-in-law, and I built the bunk beds on Christmas Eve (during the day) while my littlest one took a nap and my oldest watched a movie. The three of us knocked it out pretty quickly. That night after all of our holiday fun, we let Koah go to sleep in our bedroom. This was not anything new to him as he constantly would ask us to sleep in our room when it was bedtime. He fell asleep in our bed, and my husband moved him to the floor on a little pallet that I made for him. 

Come Christmas morning, this is what he found...

And this was his response...

Another fun fact? I don't want to jinx it, but he has slept in his room every night since Christmas!
He hasn't even considered anywhere else.

Details on the rest of the space coming soon! 


  1. Love the bunkbeds- and the deep wood tone!
    Your boys are adorable, by the way!

    1. Thanks! I was pretty excited about the wood tone too, especially for the affordable price tag... win, win! :)

  2. Where did you purchase the bunk beds? I have been looking and love the one you have!

    1. Hi Tina! We purchased them from an outlet store in our town. It's called Furniture Factory Outlet or FFO. http://ffohome.com/ They have stores throughout the midwest. Unfortunately since it's an outlet store they don't usually have items for very long. Good luck! My boys are still loving them! :)
