big girl bed

when we bought a 3 family home in South Boston…it was filled with more trash then treasure…..except for this bed we found in the basement.

and i knew it could be something special


so….10 years, 2 kids, and 3 houses later….we finally had a plan for it!!!   Caroline’s 7th Birthday!!!


here is her room before….


when we snuggled in her bed i would feel like falling out.


Ta Da!!! a new bed for our big girl!!! amazing what a little paint will do…..and a lot less stuffed animals!!!


i made this pillow using her old baby pajamas…that i just couldn’t part with….


hope everyone is surviving the summer!!!!
