While the loft mainly served as my painting studio (and mommy escape, let’s be honest), we wanted to accommodate the whole family for city sleepovers and extended fieldtrips. We reoriented an existing closet next to the front door to serve as the kids’ bunkroom.
Chris made a chevron door to the bunkroom, too.
We squeezed three twin beds and four storage drawers in this 9×6′ space. Thankfully the 18′ tall ceilings offered some breathing room in what would otherwise be a tight, I’m-hyperventilating space.
I cut FLOR squares for “wall-to-wall” carpet in the bunkroom.
The kids spent many hours creating their own art at the loft and spontaneously came up with the idea themselves to paper the bunkroom with their drawings. I LOVE how it turned out, and the drawings never failed to make me laugh. Kids are funny.
We painted one wall with chalkboard paint and attached permanent frames that could be switched out with new art by using clips.
We sandwiched two IKEA magnet boards together in a frame for magnetic clips and magnetic architectural puzzles.
The best view was from the top bunk–great spying potential!
And, it offered a cool perspective of the lanterns and mechanical operations of the loft.
