bunk beds

cabin bedroom tour + before & after

cabin bedroom before & after // smitten studioSpeaking of Michigan, it has been a while since I shared anything on the status of the cabin. We basically finished up most of our projects here in time to start our home renovation back in LA. Our last trip consisted of some spring cleaning and not much else work-wise, but I was finally able to take some photos of the full finished bedroom. It really has become a lovely peaceful getaway.

Cabin progress: bedroom update & bunks

cabin bedroom built in bunk bedscabin bedroom built in bunk bedcabin bedroomcabin bedroom built in bunk bedOn the last trip to the cabin we got a lot accomplished in the bedroom. We worked late the night before leaving to finish the bunk beds, wallpaper, & install the lighting. So… sorry about the poor quality of the photos, I had to snap these on the way out the door for an early flight and it was still dark out! One of the down falls of trying to renovate and document a cabin from across the country.

To recap on everything we had previously done in the bedroom…
1. Removed the old walls, floor, ceiling, doors, and bunk beds. 2. Installed new flooring. 3. Put up the new ceiling. 4. Hung & finished the drywall. 5. Framed out the new closets and added doors. 6. Put in new entry doors. 7. Installed new overhead and sconce lighting 8. Re-built one set of bunk beds 9. Wallpapered

… and this is what we accomplished for this update:
1. Re-worked our new bunk bed a little and painted it white 2. Installed the curtain rods & curtains for the bunks (I used the same materials for the rods as I did for the living room curtains, just smaller) 3. Made the bunk ladder

… and still to do:
1. Install two small windows in the bunk bed wall. (I want a view of the lake while lying in bed, even if it is through a tiny window. :)

Almost done in here!

cabin progress: in the bedroom

bedroom-bedwallWe are heading back to the cabin this week and I can not wait! Last trip we were finally able to sleep in a real bed instead of on the floor… and better yet, the bedroom no longer functions as a storage room for all of the construction materials. So, here is the current status of the bedroom.

In order to fit a full sized bed in the room we tore out one set of bunk beds (the room previously had two sets of identical bunk beds as shown here) and a closet. We re-built a smaller linen sized closet on that side of the room to fit the new bed.

bedroom-bunkbedsPicking up from where I left off on the last bedroom update (check back here), we have:
1. Mudded (is that a word?), sanded, and painted the drywall (with a little help from our neighbor!).  2. Hung the closet doors 3. Trimmed out the floor, ceiling, & window 4. Re-built one set of bunk beds. 5. Put together the new bed. (Yay!)

Things left to do:
1. Decide on bunk bed color (I am leaning towards painting it white the same as the walls). 2. Install curtain rods & curtains on the bunk beds (train car style). 3. Install the lights shown here and pray that they fit.  4. Wallpaper the wall behind the main bed. 5. Install two mini windows on the bunk bed wall. 6. Make this into a nightstand. 7. Make a ladder for the bunk beds. 8. Find or make art & style the room!
