In a post I did awhile back, I mentioned the totally rockin' loft bed that Trevor made for Melia. It is finally getting the post it deserves!!
When Trev and I started talking about where we would put our kiddos when we bring them home from Africa, we decided we needed more space. Since finishing our basement is not a feasible option for now, we figured we should raise the kids' beds up to make room. So, for Melia's birthday, she got a loft bed!
I LOVE this one from Pottery Barn!
I wanted it, but in white, and was absolutely NOT going to pay $1,200 for it!
So, the camp bed knock-off was born...
Note the wainscoting on the outside like the PB version! :)
He put cork board up for a bulletin board on one side...
...and a whiteboard on the other side!
The carpenter himself!!
Yep, she loves it! To be honest, so does Camden...he calls the reading nook underneath his "office" and does really important stuff under there (like play with his legos!).
So, here is why my husband is a rockstar on this project:
He did it for about $200 (1/6th the PB Price)
He added those awesome extra things (the whiteboard and the bulletin board)
He made it where he can add the bottom bunk if we adopt a girl
He did not totally wreck the house while he did this project
HE DID THE WHOLE THING WITHOUT A BLUEPRINT! It's true...the only plan he used was some sketches he did with a couple of guys from work and his own concept!
Hope he's ready to do Camden's in May! ;)
P.S. Thanks, Richard Jett, for hanging out and helping Trev with this project!
