Blog Cabin 2013 Mega Den: What's your favorite?

My youngest son has been begging for bunk beds. My search for a solution for his room with awkward angled walls led me to the nifty murphy bunks DIY Network used in the 2013 Blog Cabin. 

Is this the most brilliant set of beds you've ever seen? If you think it's cute open, take a look at it closed:

The 2013 DIY Network Blog cabin is in New Bern, NC. This area has some of the prettiest scenery you can imagine. 

Originally built in 1892, this cedar shake cottage has been completely transformed. My favorite room in the house is the Mega-Den. 

The entry greets you with a reclaimed barn wood sliding door you can close to keep the sound from traveling down the stairs. A comfortable sectional and an old trunk found in the original home create a great space for curling up for movie night.

Check out this upcycled antique wardrobe joined at the hip with a low dresser. The brilliant minds at DIY added a wine chiller in the closet section and turned the top of the dresser into drink server. It makes me want to mix a cocktail! Cheers!

This fabulous upcycle reminds me of the multi-purpose wardrobe I found in Ocean Isle for our beach cottage

This neat little wardrobe ended up costing about $3,000. Why you ask? Because Patrick wrecked his truck getting it for me. I have so many stories of near death experiences, and bat-doo crazy people from Craigslist, this one is no exception. (More on that later.) 

I digress...back to the megacabin...the den serves so many purposes and utilizes found pieces with character (something we try to infuse into every space we design). A room without pieces that tell a story is just a room that you can order out of a catalog. 

It really is a cool space. If you get a chance, visit DIY Network's home page and tell us which Blog Cabin room is your favorite!
