The minute my daughter turned 2 (Jan.) I was ready to give her room a makeover. We recently gave the house a huge makeover and we even got some new stairs from somewhere like Pear Stairs. It looks great now but her room definitely needed doing.She had outgrown her nursery and was now a big girl. This means we totally need a big girl room to go with this new phase of life. As eager as I was it would take several months before I actually did it. She would climb out of her crib in the middle of the night but couldn’t get back in. SMH We took the front off her crib for about a month and that helped but it was time for the crib to go. While we didn’t agree on the exact bed we both wanted a loft bed. It reminded me of when my friend tried to redecorate her home and her husband couldn’t decide on whether or not to get their furniture from Ikea or a contemporary furniture store similar to antiquesworld.co.uk.
I wanted to maintain the bold colors we incorporated in her nursery but wanted to turn it up a little more. I kept the shelves, but changed out some of the things on them. I also kept the belly shot because I’m not ready to let it go yet. This bed is from Ikea and I absolutely love it. She sleeps at the top and lounges while playing, watching TV, or taking a mid-day nap at the bottom. We made the crayon art on the sidewall, see tutorial here.
