Now that we have decided to stay in our house it is time to make Addison a proper bedroom (instead of the spare room with mattresses on the floor). Setting up a bedroom means having a new bed to put in it! and some fancy new sheets and quilt covers to go along with it.

Since Addison still needs someone to sleep with him we decided to look into bunk beds that would accommodate all our needs. The idea of having a double down the bottom and a single up the top seemed like the perfect idea for the room. Plenty of sleeping room but not taking up lots of space. Bunk beds may also be very handy in the future with the boys (Addi and Pressie) eventually ending up sharing the same room.

After finding the perfect bed, we made space and set it up. We also found some wonderful sheet and quilt cover sets (matching but not the same) for both the top and bottom bunks. I wanted to cover the old spare rooms European cushions and scatters to match, so I sort out some fabric from spotlight to sew some.

Other bits and pieces that I will add to the room will be shelves for his lego, some lego heads for storage of pieces (4 to be exact!), book racks (made from spice racks at Ikea) for his favourite books, Addison’s toys and books would also be moved down (his train table, black board, hot wheels cars & track – freeing up space upstairs and in Preston’s room). I found a great canopy at Ikea, which I had intended to put above the bed, but after getting bunks this wasn’t going to happen. We decided to put it above his train table instead. It’s all slowly coming together. I will be making some name art canvases for his room also.
