when bella turned three, we decided to give her an awesome big girl room!
even before we had kids, i had my eye on this bed.
it. is. precious.
|pottery barn kids cottage loft bed, $1399.00|
but at $1.4k, for a bed she will probably think is cheesy way too soon, it was always just a dream. but thanks to the internet and a crafty husband, we were able to make a bed that is pretty much awesome.
we didn't use them. but we did base our bed on those plans.
and added a staircase and (eventually) a slide.
here is the progress
shelf: IKEA Expedit shelving unit
dresser: yard sale find
sun: IKEA smilla sol with rope light glued inside
this is still a work in progress. we plan to paint the entire unit, add a slide and some trim. we are also working to declutter her room, as it is overrun with STUFF.
