Bedskirt Madness: Number 3

This is the last post about my sudden need to put skirts on all the beds!  This might be the most unique of all of my bed-skirting, mainly because I decided to put a skirt on a bunk bed.  I don’t think most bunk beds get bed skirts!Bedskirt Madness - AnnaVirginia Fashion
With a new baby arriving, I had to get creative with storage space, and there is plenty of space under the lower bunk in the kid room.  I’ve used a bunch of diaper boxes to pack up baby clothes from my two kids to save for future babies.  Well, now I want access to them since babies go through each size of clothes very quickly!  Those boxes fit great under the bed, but didn’t look pretty, so I had to come up with a way to cover them.

A bunk bed doesn’t work with any bed skirts from the store.  The bed has rails and posts and ledges that make a traditional bed skirt unusable.  So, for this project I sewed up a skirt that used ties to attach to the rails.  I measured everything out to make sure it would go on perfectly.  It turned out pretty nice!  Hopefully you can see the ties in these pictures above and below.Bedskirt Madness - AnnaVirginia Fashion
I used some fabric from my stash that worked well enough with the colors in their room.  The yellow gingham checkers works out pretty well, and gets rid of some fabric that I don’t have any other use for!  The lighting wasn’t the greatest, unfortunately. But you can get the idea of how well it turned out.

Have you ever seen a bunk bed with a bed skirt?
