I am not a fan of the ginormous bed. The room is small. The bed is not. It is hard to make. And it is hard to make it look cute. When LM was almost 2 we decided it was time to move from the crib to bed. I had a cute little twin bed picked out at Pottery Barn Kids. My husband thought we should look at some local stores (for a small town we have a lot of furniture stores). I knew better. I did. But off we went to look for a cute little bed for LM. That same afternoon this lovely was delivered to our house. That's what you get when a 2 yr old and her dad pick out furniture. Don't say I didn't warn you! :) So, for almost 5 yrs I have lived with this. I have to say that it has been nice for sleepovers. And every so often LM will sleep on the top bunk. She is ready to redecorate and has found a bed in PBK she likes (yea!). We're not getting it right now but hopefully in the very near future. Duvet cover from Garnet Hill. Love the 2 different sides so I can change it up when the mood strikes me. Sheets were a gift - can't remember where they came from. The white pillow case has little ballerinas on it which LM loves. My dad made the shelf and I painted it white for the room - it's kind of her night table since the bed is too big to fit a night table next to it. Pink buckets from PBK. Those of you from Virginia may remember the white bear on the top bunk as 'Snow Bear' from Thalhimers.
Above is the wall across from the bed. Book case and basket from PBK. The basket sits on my hope chest. Have pondered painting it white.
This is the little 'variety' corner at the end of the bed. Bookcase from JCPenney. Baskets and pink buckets with chalkboard from Target. The pink bin on the floor holds her dress up things. Her hockey medals hang on the wall - I need to find a better way to display them but this works for now.
Dress sits next to the hope chest. From JCPenney. My mom made the quilt and curtains. Basket holds all the other quilts my mom made. They usually come out at night and serve as beds for the animal farm (you can get a glimpse of them above on the bed). The paint is called kiwi (I think - we painted it 8 yrs ago for her nursery - we knew she would be a girl but I wouldn't paint the room pink -'just in case') by Behr.
I may or may not be back this week. We leave Thursday for my cousin's wedding in No. Ca. LM is the flower girl. Have a lot to do to get ready to go. Not the least of which is figuring out what clothes to bring as it is supposed to be a balmy 99 on Saturday. Not quite the fall weather I was counting on. Luckily, LM's dress for the wedding is sleeveless and mine is short sleeved. Hubby's suit, now that's another story...
