A Bed Fit For A Princess

It's been a long time since I've posted. It has been so embarrassingly long since I've posted to this blog, that I don't even know where to begin with updates. So I thought I'd start with this post that I started this summer.

The reality is that I could have done it a lot earlier, but pictures required me to clean the girls' room enough to take a picture that made it seem like I don't allow my kids to live like slobs.....don't judge.

This past summer we bunked the girls beds. I promised that we would make it special.

I was able to do this all for about $25
(the light dimmer cost the most by far! $10)


Wooden dowel: $6
I let Stella paint it.


Christmas Lights: free (from storage)
Dimmer Switch: $10
White Hooks: $2


Closet Flange Thingy: $5
Screw it on to the bed....cross your fingers and hope your husband doesn't yell at you for messing up.


Plastic Shower Curtain Rings: $1
Fabric: free (donated scrap from S. E. THANKS!!!)


I sewed some custom sheer curtains for Stella's bed. I also made a matching cover for Sofia's bed rail. We also painted the plywood between the two beds white.

And TA-DA!! A bed fit for my princess Stella


A view from the inside.



The dimmer switch is awesome for a night light as well as evening reading that won't disturb her older sister.


She loves her princess cave!

Rach... you turned the bed I grew up in into a Princess bed?! Impressive. (Matt)

Rach said...

Yeah Matt, I forgot that these were your childhood beds. Thanks again, they've worked out great for the girls. They look different painted white, huh? And now....they have morphed into a princess cave. ;)

I stumbled upon your blog through pinterest. I am so intrigued by where you live in Michigan. I noticed the Meijer prodcuts in your photos! I also have 2 girls and a boy and just as a secret, I also dress him in onesies despite his toddler size to keep trapped a baby! I would love to chat sometime, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts. Hope to hear from you.

Rach, don't be embarrassed, but my favorite part of your blog is the "Not Me" Monday. Oh my goodness I love it! I so relate. :0) I also that you wrote, "Honest, Blatant, & Unafraid AND ... your priorities!!!! I am also a servant of God, a wife and a mother, in Salem, Oregon. I mow the lawn for my man too. I think we could be friends!
