Follow-up on the Split-Wall Paint

Here's how the paint looks with the bunk beds in:


I love it. Each boy has his own-colored area, in a both-love-blue room. If I'd had to share a room as a child, I would have LOVED this.

Very cool!

That looks awesome. What a creative way to make sure each boy gets exactly what he wants! I kind of wish my bedroom looked like that.

Naomi said...

So cute!!! Do the boys love it??

Emily said...

I was a bit apprehensive when you posted the pics of the freshly painted room, but it looks awesome with the bunk beds! I, too, would have loved this as a kid.

Donna said...

When they are fully adult, and painting rooms in their own homes, your boys will suddenly realize just how much their parents loved them. You guys totally rock.

Marie Green said...

I love it! Now the real question is... do THEY love it? (I bet they do...)

Leeann said...

That is completely perfect. I am in love with that idea and if we get bunks for my older son, that is exactly what I am doing, even tho he is not sharing a room, b/c it looks so utterly cool.

LOVE!

Joanne said...

I love it too. We are going to get bunk beds someday soon for my girls and I am totally stealing this.

Wow! That turned out really well! I'll have to remember this for future room-painting!

Dr. Maureen said...

THAT IS AWESOME.

Sarah said...

I really really like that. The colors are just BRILLIANT. Like a Caribbean island.

Angie said...

This is great! I would have just told the that the both wanted blue and gone with it. Your idea is better.

I love it!

That is brilliant. I'm totally filing that idea away for if/when we ever get bunk beds. I will definitely be doing that.

Carmen said...

That is amazing. I LOVE IT and I can only assume that your boys love it too. It looked very bright when the room was bare, but with the furniture it, it's perfect. Can I hire you to come and choose some paint colours at my house? When we bought the house, we had to paint nearly every room and I dithered like you would not believe.

Carmen said...

*sigh* Large large *sigh* I hate typos.

IN. With the furniture IN.

Heather D. said...

That was a really, really good idea!

Susan said...

This is such a great idea! Why isn't every single person who has bunk beds doing this regularly? I can't believe how well that works. It makes me want to have more children so I can do it! Did you and/or Paul think of this yourselves? Send in this idea to a magazine that will pay you for it!

Liz said...

Looks gorgeous! What a smart idea.

Becky said...

That looks great! I bet the boys LOVE it.

Brilliant! So, so clever!

Mrs. Irritation said...

Genius!

Monique said...

I so, so, so love this! And in my searching around for some storage stuff this weekend, I see that the orange and green are both hot colors in baskets and bins - you could do separate storage stuff for them! I mean, if you needed to, or anything.

LOVE it!!!

Saly said...

So fun!!

Nowheymama said...

That is so cool!

Alice said...

oh man you're right, i would have SUPER LOVED this as a kid. my own WALL in its own COLOR??! so cool.

the new girl said...

That looks super cool and it's SO WELL DONE. Straight lines and ALL. (We--ahem--can't really paint like that in this house.)

Kelsey said...

I LOVE the result of that paint job - and I'm totally impressed with the painting and planning skills it took to pull that off. We are NOT good painters. At all.
