Indoor climbing wall for an outdoors-themed bedroom

Up until now the twins have shared a bedroom. They’ve been more than happy with this arrangement, but now they’ve started school and we’ve been encouraging their independence more we decided that the time felt right to give them their own rooms. Ez was thrilled with the idea, but Fonz wasn’t so keen, so I knew we’d have to come up with something special to win him over.

I had gymnastic rings in my bedroom as a child and my brother had a trapeze, and I wanted to come up with something similar. I’ve had for a while, so I thought a plywood climbing wall would fit the bill perfectly. When I shared my idea with my husband I think he thought I was bonkers at first, but luckily he’s super-practical, and he got on with planning the specifics.

Fonz helped us to plan out the arrangement of climbing holds. We fixed the first couple of holds on , and then we got him to stand on these and stretch to work out the best placement of the other holds. Once all the holds were securely screwed on , the boards themselves were bolted to the wall with anchor bolts. We needed to add washers to space the board from the wall, because the climbing hold bolts protruded from the back. As the kids grow, we can take the boards down and rearrange the holds so that it will still be challenging for them.

I opted for an outdoors-theme for the bedroom as a whole , so to finish off the climbing wall I marked out a simple mountain skyline with masking tape and painted it green .

As you can see, we have one very happy customer. He loves his climbing wall, and can’t wait to show it off as soon as guests arrive. We can declare the move to separate rooms a resounding success, much to our relief.

The mountains are painted in matt emulsion in Grenouille from . The climbing holds are from .
