A major bedroom makeover was needed in order to fit our two girls in such a small space. Knocking down the closet and building a new one with a smaller doorway created the space for this bunk bed! Let’s take a look back at where this room started!
Bedroom Makeover - Closet
This room was your basic 10×12 room with your basic sunk in closet. This closet eliminated a space for a bunk bed to bud up against the wall. So I decided to take the wall out and start from scratch and build a new closet!
After the wall was torn down on the closet I extended the wall out to fit a dresser! I also added an arch! The arch was way less complicated then I thought it would be and now I am trying to find all the spots in my house that I can add another one! Check out my highlight titled “Girl’s Room” on my Instagram page to see the step by step on how I made this happen.
Bedroom Makeover - Gorilla Ladder
To help me get through this renovation I used three different Gorilla Ladders! These are all found at Home Depot and are usually in stock at a store near you! This one is the two step lightweight step stool. This step stool is such a good price, right now it is on sale for $19.88! I use this step stool on the daily. To help me reach my upper cabinets to putting nails in shiplap! It is my go to.
This Aluminum Gorilla Ladder has an 18 foot reach! For how large of a ladder this is it is unexpectedly easy to carry! I’ve used this ladder to get on the roof, change a light, and so many other diys. This ladder has came in handy too many times to count!
The last Gorilla Ladder is MY favorite!! This is their platform ladder and it is SO light weight. I am going to use this ladder for every paint project I do. It will help me cut in the ceiling without stepping off the ladder to move it over and over again because it is 47.25 inches long. I love this platform ladder!!
Bedroom Makeover - Room and Built-in Bed
Next step was building the bunk beds! This bunk bed only cost me $200 in materials to make! Also it was fairly simple! I know you guys can do it! To find the tutorial check out the “Bunk Bed” highlight on my Instagram page. This will walk you through the entire process!
I love how much space the room has now! Eliminating the need for a dresser in the room and being able to bud the bunk bed up against the wall really opened up the space! I feel like it also added some much needed character to the room! Here is the final result of the bedroom makeover!
