The time is finally here! I am making over our shared kids’ bedroom. I shared a few items on my Instagram page and several people noticed that the beds are in a different room. We recently moved the kids to a smaller room to convert their old room into a playroom. We have loved the set up for months now and I’m finally ready to start decorating their new room. But first, lets talk about the plans!
Converting a Small Room into a Shared Kids’ Bedroom
This is a small room and we’re making it work to our advantage. We have room for two antique Jenny Lind beds with a small nightstand between. We will have one small kid friendly dresser located in the corner. I love this dresser because it’s small enough for the kids to use while learning to put their laundry away.
Their beds are antique and thrifted. I painted them with Rustoleum Chalk Paint in Linen White. While I cannot link these exact beds, I’m sharing a few options below.
I love this dresser for the kids’ bedroom. It is smaller and lower, allowing them to open and shut the drawers with ease. I did paint the hardware for the previous bedroom and I’ll keep it brass in this room as well. You can read more about my favorite brass paints here.
Art for a Shared Kids’ Bedroom
I’ve featured several prints by Urban Garden Prints Co. in our home. This time, I’m featuring their bird prints above each bed. I love how the blue bird is above Micah’s bed and the pink bird is above Celia’s bed. I’ve shared several coastal prints for a kid’s room in the past and you can find those ideas here.
Kid’s Bedroom Lighting
I plan on keeping their bedding white and adding fun pillows and throws for the space. They currently have Beddy’s sets and they’re the perfect bedding set for children. They can easily make their beds in the morning with a quick zip. They’re also easy to remove and place in the laundry.
Durable Rug for a Kids Room
With all of the natural elements and neutral colors in the room, I’ve decided to incorporate color with a large rug. I will need to ground the space so I am utilizing a 10×14 rug. I love the look of Dash & Albert rugs in coastal homes but they’re out of budget for this room. I’ve found several looks for less and I’ve settled on a diamond pattern.
