Shared Boy’s Room


A little playful, colorful and a touch of modern this is my two boy's shared bedroom.   I needed to get creative with the little space I had.  The size of the room was not ideal for two twin beds and the boys were much too little for bunk beds so I tackled a small bed DIY project.

Design Inspiration

I was inspired by a pallet style coffee table I saw somewhere on the Internet.

Decorating Style

Playful modern

Project Details

I was loving the look of wood shipping pallets but not knowing where that wood comes from I opted to make my own pallets.  I took the a child sized mattress from IKEA, the Vyssa Vinka and built the beds around the mattress dimensions.  Here is a link to the Pallet Bed DIY.   I then constructed headboards to line to walls from some pressboard, foam and fabric, you can find the tutorial HERE.

To create the houndstooth wall I used the All-over wall stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils
