craft room

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 8:26 PM
So there has been a lot of talk about creating a craft room for me. Right now both girls have their own room but is that really necessary at this age (10 months and 6 years old)?

I've really been getting hard core into crafts and I have craft stuff everywhere right now. Glue sticks, ribbon, tulle, alligator clips, "bling", and the list goes on. Most of it is housed in our bedroom since most of the time I do my crafts in bed when the girls are asleep and DH is playing Xbox.
So I'd really like my own area where I can put up pretty shelves, a huge table and just make it my space since that's really hard to come by now a days. I love the look of this room because it's so clean and simple so if I was a millionaire I'd definitely design my room around it! I'm thinking Ikea and Target will help get me to my goal though.
Currently it'll be really easy to combine the girls into one room since we'd just have to put Kendall's crib in Makenna's room but eventually we'll probably need to look into children's bunk bed so there will be a lot of play space on the floor for both girls.

The hubby wants us to look into regular twin over twin bunk beds but I'm just not into that. It's still a girls room and I want it to be more personal and pretty.
Besides lots of storage areas and toy chests their bed is important to me and I'm sure to them too. I want to look into loft bunks because 1.) I never had one and 2.) they bring a lot of creativity and I hope if we could get one like the picture below, it can inspire a lot of imagination.
C'mon, isn't it amazing?! Of course I can't get it for a while but if Kendall sleeps on the bottom next year it could work. I mean look, it comes with built-in side protectors so she can't even fall off! Just to be safe I'd still buy some so they could go down the exposed areas because she is such an active kid when she sleeps.
I just think it's beautiful though and I especially know Makenna will love it because it would be her very own place house and she could sleep on top. Plus, I love the extra storage on the front - perfect for pictures and other little nick nacks.

So for now I will dream of loft bunks and start shopping for my craft room stuff. First is first, the paint color. Maybe a pretty ocean blue.......?

We have 3 girls...two share a room (ages 3 yrs and 8 months) and the third has her own room (9 yrs). I wonder how the age difference will work between your girls sharing a room? I have often wondered as we have a 6 year gab between the older two. I love this bunk bed set...Where did you find this? How beautiful for little girls. Much nicer than traditional bunks.

LOVE that bed. I really wish we had something like that for our girls!
And I like the craft room as well. I'm also a fan of clean lines and simple designs.
