The Princess' bed is something I would have loved when I was a little girl.
Her very own playhouse right inside her room! Vince got his inspiration from Pottery Barn Kids catalogs, did a little research online and then made his own *pattern*. I think he did an amazing job!! Inside there's room for her kitchen, her Barbie house and a few more treasures.
Now, I have to admit, changing the sheets on a loft or bunk bed is quite the feat! I'm sure I look hilarious laying prostrate on there trying to stretch the sheets across!! In fact, I crack up at myself:) But at least The Princess can make her own bed each morning and I don't have to climb up there every day.
This is her dresser. It actually belonged to my grandparents and is part of a set that I used from age 7 till I got married. I'm saving the bed and nightstand for her to use later on.
This little shelf has her mini tea set collection and all those Madame Alexander dolls she's collected from Mc Donald's.
I'm not very much into *themes*, unless you call eclectic a theme. I have decorated my children's rooms with antique mall finds, treasures from my childhood and their own found treasures. I think it's more interesting and personal that way.
In case you're wondering, there is a ladder built in at the foot of the bed--I realize it looks like he has to climb on from the side in this photo.
His bed isn't quite as high up, since he's a little smaller. However, there is still plenty of room underneath for lots of play. His train table fits great under there as do a couple of toy baskets.
He loves it under here!! I'm quite impressed with how nimble he has become with climbing, too!
These are some shots of Mr. B's room decor. I call it *eclectic patriotic*.
His room is pretty small and the only other real piece of furniture in there is the antique chest of drawers. Hanging above it is a silhouette of my dad as a boy. It's amazing how very much like my son this looks!
Tomorrow I'll show you the playroom/schoolroom....
