The girls’ new bedroom


Back in February we switched the girls from their toddler bed and crib to a bunk bed so that we could save up on space in their tiny bedroom – and that was the perfect excuse to redecorate their room a little. I kept it simple…we are renting so I have to control my impulses 😉

I wanted their bedroom to be a girl’s bedroom that wouldn’t be too girly – not that I have anything against pink and rainbows and unicorns. We got their bed at IKEA, it wasn’t too expensive and we love it because it’s very low for  bunk beds, perfect for toddlers. I personalized their bed with dots stickers that I made from copper contact paper, and I used these dots throughout the room – I love the way copper ties all the colors in the room together.

I made loads of rolling toy boxes that could hide and clean up the mess (you can find the tutorial here), and decorated one of the walls with more of the fabric bird stickers I made last year (you can find the tutorial here). I reused some of the giant honeycomb balls that I bought earlier this year for Olivia’s birthday, by far the girls’ favorite thing in the room now.

I’m usually so bad at buying art for our walls, but I finally got myself to buy a few prints the girls and I love for their wall. We use them as conversation starters at night before going to bed. For example, we talk about our trip to Arizona and the time when Madeline fell in the cactus when we look at cactus print by Leah Duncan – the girls laugh about that incident mostly :) Other prints I added to the bedroom: “Hello. Also, I love you” print by The Big Harumph, Wild dream by Helen Dardik and Oscar Lou by Caroline Gomez. I also used my girls’  own drawings and art pieces, I think it’s so sad when their art just ends up in a folder. Hang it up!


I added loads of pillows on their beds. I made most of them from fabric I bought at Purl Soho. I just about die every time I walk in that store, the fabric selection is amazing! Photo above also features a pillow by Colette Bream (far left) and Clarence the Lion pillow that I made from a DIY kit by Sarah Young. All these pillows make it so comfy for us to read together on the bed. I placed their book case as an extension to their bed, and the girls love having direct access to their books right from the bed.

    Hi I was wondering what age your oldest was at the time of this post? I love the bunk bed but am not sure if my girls are to young for it still.
