Bedrooms 1 and 3
This first bedroom started out as the boys’ bedroom, was briefly the master bedroom, and changed back into one of the boy’s bedrooms. We moved a door, changed the closet around, took out the carpet.
The third bedroom was created with a couple of new walls. We refinished the concrete and painted the walls a nice neutral green.
I wanted to try something a little different. On the textured ceiling, I did a light coat of dark blue. The ceilings are only seven feet and painted them a dark color. It isn’t any sort of a wise design choice, but I like it anyway.
I grew up with the pine bunk beds and one of the dressers. My mom hung on to them, and I was glad to put them in my home. They still have graffiti on from when I was growing up and I’m hesitant to clean it off.
The second dresser was a lucky find at a thrift store. It was in great shape and matched the other furniture perfectly.
