She has a loft! We definitely made my 2 year old’s room the coolest room in the house and I would do it all over again. She has a climbing wall and basically a built in fort where she sleeps…I mean come on! What kid wouldn’t want to have a room like that.
This beautiful structure was a collaboration between many people. Since I knew we were moving into a space with such a large room for Annick and the baby I wanted to separate the two spaces for each kid. I started browsing pinterest and started making a board title “kid’s room” (this is lingo used for people obsessed and use pinterest like I do on a regular basis). I knew I wanted a loft structure and I originally wanted a slide so I collected my ideas and inspirational images from pinterest and showed them to my husband and father-in-law. They took the images and designed the loft. I helped with the design (especially the railing part, thank you very much!) and they constructed it. They did a fantastic job and I can’t thank them enough.
As you can see in the picture directly above, there is a slide. The finish product is actually the first picture you see in this post and as you can see it has a climbing wall. We had to change things up because of some mistakes in the calculations. Basically, the slide was way too steep. My daughter refused to slide down it which is not surprising since she got more of my husband’s “safety sense”.
Sooo, yeah. I have to agree that this is too steep.
My daughter is a climber anyway so it ended up being the best option. We painted the structure white and left the really nice plywood as is and just put some poly on it to seal it. I wanted white so we could add pops of color to the room with decoration. I am really happy with the result. Below are more pictures. Let me know what you think. You’ll also see where we decided to put her bed and add a little play area. What do you like about the loft? Would you add or change anything?
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Again, thanks to Papa D and Nic (my husband) for doing an awesome job.
Catch you all next time.
