Bunk Bed Makeover - You won't believe the before

My son was super excited to have an official bunk bed in our new temporary home. My husband and I both felt that the bunk bed needed a serious makeover before we moved in (see before pic below). Now I know a lot of people are against painting wood and ordinarily I would agree but this bunk bed and room had soo much wood it was hard to get away from (and it had a slight odour).


After sanding and priming it was ready for some fun paint. I found this great colour from Canadian Tire's Premier Paint line call Starry Night. Their paints are washable and scuff resistant - perfect for a little boys bunk bed. I decided to keep the walls white to add contrast and really make the blue paint pop.


I kept the decor fairly age neutral as we will most likely be moving again in a few months (this is a flip house) but at the same time I wanted it to feel comfortable and somewhere my son could relax and enjoy his toys.



I picked up these fawn print blankets, bear pillows and pin striped comforters from Homesense. The sconces are a great Ikea hack I whipped up at the last minute but I love how they turned out.
