We have 4 kids and 4 bedrooms. One of those rooms is for Mommy and Daddy, one is for our daughter, and one is a guest room. So, the 4th bedroom will eventually house 3 boys (I could almost hear you gasp…) Right now, my older two sons (5 1/2 and 2 1/2 years) are sharing it, and my youngest (4 months) won’t move in there for quite a while. We’ve known for a while that bunk beds were in our future, and in my normal style, I wanted to make them rather than buy them. I’ve spent months thinking, researching and looking for inspiration, but after my youngest was born, I thought it was time to really get the project in motion.
My kids LOVE animals, and we try to encourage that love in any way that we can. We’ve got multiple aquariums, multiple dogs, multiple cats… you get the point. Our neighborhood has a ton of trees, so we also have a lot of birds, squirrels, and BATS! We can walk around a night and just see them buzzing overhead, it’s pretty awesome.
So, my “workshop/lab” is actually a multipurpose room.. as in workshop, office, music studio, laundry room, storage room, stroller parking, etc..
Therefore, it’s FULL of stuff, and I often reorganize the space to make it most efficient for what I need at the moment. I’d been wanting a more functional and versatile work table for quite a while. I have a giant desk, but I wanted something as a work surface.. something I could paint on, drill on, etc. I also had 2 separate workbenches, at different height levels, up against a wall, under storage cabinets, which limited their usefulness.
