Up in the Trees Shared Girls’ Bedroom Design | One Room Challenge (Week 2)


It’s the second week of my six week makeover of the bedroom for my two young girls to share.  Last week, I shared with you how this bedroom looked to start, and today I’m showing you all of my plans for the space.

I’m keeping the stenciled wall you can see in the background of a few of these images, so I decided to center the theme of the room around this wall.  I want both of my daughters to know they can  climb, soar, or fly to new heights if they put their mind to it, and this room will combine elements to illustrate this wish.

Plus, what kind of kid doesn’t love to play up in the trees, even if it’s just for fun?



I need to pack two growing girls into a small, 9’x11′ space, so this lofted bed is a must.  I’ll use this tutorial from Ana White to create the bed, and then the brain power of my dad to help me install it without any fear of it falling.  I’ll share all the details with you in an upcoming post.

I’ll be including a few pieces that I already completed in this space.  I refinished this dresser a couple of months ago with the intention of using it in my girls’ shared bedroom, I just never finished the rest of the bedroom.

Besides that, I have some quilt making, bookshelf building, and macrame weaving projects ahead of me.  I’m excited to try my hand at creating a couple of new projects, and am most excited for this room to finally be completed!!

Here is a run down of what I plan to complete in the next five weeks.

  • Paint room and repaint baseboards and trim
  • Remove carpet and install laminate floors
  • Construct a lofted bed and install
  • Make a macrame closet cover
  • Build wall mount bookshelves
  • Make a hot air balloon hanging pendant light
  • Sew a quilt for my daughter
  • Wall art – inspirational quote canvas
  • Wall art – song lyric artwork

A huge thank you to all of my sponsors for this One Room Challenge!  I can’t wait to share with you how much I love these tools and products in upcoming posts.
