You may recall that the last time I participated in the ORC as a linking participant, I made over our guest bedroom. Here's the bohemian chic guest bedroom reveal (another post here) from the past challenge.
This time, I'm making over my 7 year old son's room and have been on the hunt for a bunk bed that will grow with my son. I don't want anything that is flimsy or temporary looking. I noticed that many of the styles I'm drawn to are built in bunk beds. Built into the walls of their environment. Hmmm...well shoot, I wasn't planning on THAT endeavor.
Here are some of my favorite beds located in my search:

Yep, as I told you. Most of these are built-in bunk beds that have been custom built into the room. I wanted something that was grown up. Not too childish. A bit industrial.
So my selection:
The Restoration Gallery Baby and Child Bunk Bed!

Here's why:Each mattress is full size rather than the standard twin size for a bunk bed. I love the distressed wood and the sturdy look of these beds. These are shown in the white but I'm ordering them in the darker wood. This photo is a bit feminine for a little boy's room, but I have some ideas about how to make them more masculine.
I'm still on the hunt for a way to make the ceiling stand out in a unique way.
I'm fighting the urge not to paint the room in bright colors like the rest of my house. My theme is neutral tone for this room! Fight the color pop urge.
Next step, figuring out the walls of the room. That may help shape the rest of the décor. For a better look at other rooms of my house, check here.
