Cottage Bunk House Makeover

2 Materials
1 Month

This past summer, we took a seen-better-days toolshed at our cottage and transformed it into a sweet bunk house.
Here was the before....
And the after!
We finished it with white and light grey finishes, filled it with navy blue and brass accents, and maintained a vintage feel throughout. There is a classic, nautical feel about it, but without over-doing it. This dresser was purchased used and re-finished with blue paint and new hardware.
The floating bunk beds were DIY'd and built right into the space.
Everything was kept budget friendly from the laminate flooring, to accessories from Target, HomeSense, and IKEA.
Check out the full before + after photos with tutorials for the DIY bunk beds, navy + brass dresser makeover, and source list for all of the accessories on 'The Sweetest Digs' blog.

Suggested materials:

  • Paint  (hardware store)
  • Furniture and accessories  (various)
