A Big Girl Bed

We’ve been slowly-but-surely working on turning The Bundle’s “play room” into a bedroom, one that eventually both the girls can share. We started spray-painting a book-case that was formerly black, right now it’s sitting in our garage with a transparent shade of tangerine. We’ve also painted the walls a nice teal-ish color. Mawni graciously did most of the work since I was super pregnant. I also have big plans of making the bedding myself, a beautiful patchwork quilt using Heather Bailey fabric that I’ve already picked out. All I need is time and motivation to actually learn to quilt! Another great piece that I had in mind was a beautiful toddler bed that I wanted to make myself. I found it on this blog. There was only a slight problem, I have never worked with wood before and I had no equipment either, so when my parents mentioned that they wanted to buy The Bundle a “big girl” bed without knowing I was already planning on making one, I jumped on the opportunity and asked my dad if he would like to make it himself. I sent him the plans and the supply list and not too long after he and my mom brought us this:

 

The beautiful bed! My parents worked a whole afternoon (my brother also helped) and were able to finish it. Now all I have to do is paint it. At first, I wanted it white, but now I am not so sure, it would also look great with a nice stain to match the toy box. Any suggestions?

The Bundle loves it. The hard part will be getting her to sleep in it 😉

She has no problem doing it with Tata, though 🙂
