Little buddy wanted a new bed since the day we moved in. I can't really blame him, after all everyone else got a new bed. But I promised him it would be worth the wait. I created this DIY twin and queen bunkbed for kids and teens.
The Bedroom Before
I have been wanting to tackle this room for quite sometime. I am so excited to show you what I came up with!
How to Build a DIY Twin and Queen Bunkbed for Kids and Teens
First I built the frame with 2x4's. I made the top big enough to fit a twin mattress and the bottom to fit a queen mattress. I wanted this bed to be able to grow with little buddy, so I turned the mattress out into the room and made the opening a little higher so it doesn't feel too closed in.
I had electrical ran for 2 sconces and an outlet. After that I used 7 ½" shiplap to enclose the bed.
Peel and Stick Vinyl by DuraDecor
I wanted to do something really fun to finish off this bunk bed. I found this fun peel and stick vinyl from DuraDecor. It comes in lots of different finishes and it even has a texture. Not to mention it is super easy to install, just peel and stick.
For this project we went with the Harvest Distressed Wood I love all the fun colors this one has in it and the grey's matched his bed perfectly.
The Finished DIY Twin and Queen Bunkbed for Kids and Teens
I think it is safe to say this is one of my favorite projects to date. DuraDecor was the perfect design element to pull the whole space together. I decided to wrap his bed in the peel and stick vinyl as well to bring the wood tones out into the room as well!
I built the X's and ladder out of 2x4's and then stained them with Miniwaxes Dark Walnut. The bed is painted in Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams to match the ceiling. You can view more details on the ceiling here
