I think John got burned out on painting for a while so it has taken a bit to get him working on the last of the painting in the back bedroom. (If you’ve missed some of our prior Pace Arrow renovation posts, click here for a list!)
The back bedroom is split into two twin beds on each side. There is a small “closet” (actually a tall cabinet) for each and then cabinets across the top.
On the left bed, we actually keep our Pack ‘n Play crib for Scarlett as her bed. We also use some of the space at the end of her bed for storage. There is a small 3 shelf cabinet we put in for holding folded clothes.
In this picture, we stuffed everything on Luke’s bed on the right to make room for painting, so it looks a little messy.
Also, across the back wall you see a little box. There were some heavy electrical wires running across the floor here and I was worried about the kids messing with it. John got some scrap pieces of plywood and built a little box around it. Now we use it as a little shelf to stack the toy baskets and it works great!
And here is the finished product! Very neutral, clean, and ready for the critter to move back in! (He’s still working on the white/gray paint on the upper cabinets as you can still tell.)
It’s not the most exciting project we’ve done, but it makes a big difference. Especially since this bunk is very visible in the room. Luke’s is primarily covered because of his mattress and sheets (and giant Spiderman comforter!) But with a crib, there is a lot more exposed. But in my opinion, anything is an improvement over the oak look!
