A {SWEET} Bed

I didn't really plan on moving Miss M to a twin sized bed so soon, but I came across the SWEETEST vintage bed that I couldn't just let pass by :) I knew if I didn't buy it I would be thinking about it forever!

{Before}


After I started painting I realized the foot board was on upside down, oops.  Any how isn't it just darling?!?!

I painted it with Pure White {ASCP} and trimmed it with the same blue I used for the large wood picture frame hanging behind her bed. 
My original plan was to stencil on the headboard, but it came out looking a mess. SO I finally busted out the Silhouette and read enough of the directions to cute me out some vinyl. {For real, the amount of directions that thing comes with is insane!}

{After}



The bedding I bought off Overstock.com for 50 bucks! The ruffles are the sweetest!



I've been trying to get her out of our bed and she does sleep better in this one :) I think because it feels more like a real bed, those crib mattresses are not comfy! The other night she came into our room in the middle of the night and instead of climbing into our bed she wanted us to come to hers. How can you say no to this cute face?


Sweaty, sleepy babies rock.

  8. Love it! We have a convertible and I'm not sure how long it will last. Cameron has a million things she sleeps with so we might have to transition right to a queen sized bed when we do! :-)

  13. Great find!!! We haven't moved Lily into a big girl bed yet... we want to remodel the other bedroom, turn into her big girl room, and then buy her a new bed (we threw away the old mattress that was over 30 years old but the bedframe and matching dressers are great! - they were my grandmother's!). Enjoy your cutie!
