I'm glad the kids don't read my blog yet. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to do this.
I'm thinking ahead to birthdays and brainstorming. Autumn & Heidi love making forts and putting curtains up on their bunkbed (it's a red metal twin over a full bed). I started thinking (dangerous I know!) and they keep asking if we can decorate their room but I deter them. In the past every time I tried, they took everything down within DAYS.
I'm hoping that if I decorate in a way that plays toward their playing tendencies, they'd love it. And they're older now. So I think it'd be great if I could make bed curtains for the bottom bunk. But then what do I do for the top bunk? Canopies look strange to me on bunkbeds so I don't want to do that. I'd like to do a bed tent on the top but I want to coordinate what I do with the top bunk to what I do on the bottom bunk.
I'm going to pull out a sketchpad and see what I come up with. Anybody else have any ideas? Here are some pictures to get your creative juices flowing:
