Harper Kate's Big Girl Bed

What.... you act like I haven't blogged in like 5 months or something....

I have no excuse except that blogging was taking up a little bit too much of my time... so I took a break.  I love this blog but it's not worth ignoring my kids and house for!  Balance, it's elusive here!  Please share with me if you have got it all figured out!

In the meantime, I've been cranking out projects like crazy.  It's amazing how much more you can get done by cutting out blogging about it!

Onto the real topic at hand.  Harper Kate's big girl room is underway!  She will be three in June (WHAT!?!?!?!)  so it is out with the crib and in with a pink bed.  Yes, pink.  Saying that pink is her favorite color would be an understatement.   I would say it's more of an obsession.  She actually thinks her eyes are pink.... enough said, right!

We were so very lucky to get to trade her crib for this amazing solid wood Jenny Lind style bed.  It came from our good friends in town who run Camp Ton-A-Wandah and for me inspired a vintagey glam style for my little pink obsessed baby girl {side note... if you are looking for an amazing and truly magical girls summer camp that has been around since 1933 you must check them out!}.

Here is a before.  It was gorgeous as is but she was serious about wanting a pink bed!

This is how I felt about painting the bed pink....

 My face is much happier now!  It was just a little shocking at first!

Same spot... Before/After

Did you notice this blog post only has her bed.  Yeah... that's because the rest of the room isn't finished yet!  Not even close.  We make no big promises here on timeline but I'll post it all as it gets completed!

  2. Oh I need to go your route instead of what I just walls! However, we moved our girl's room this week & I made a "mommy promise" (likely to be broken) that we will paint later. The green is perfect for the room now... Love her bed & that side table rocks!
