Inspired to sleep

Hello dear friends

I was reminded the other day that I was due for another post; it was only then that I realised so much time had passed since I was last able to dedicate time to my visual indulgences.

For the past few weeks I have been sanding, painting, painting some more, then sanding again in an effort to revive the double bed that I managed to acquire in my grand Ebay win so that the little Belle Boo Bear can migrate from her cot/toddler bed to a big bed.

Yep - a double bed for a little mite!! Why you ask? Well, let me explain...our decision to put Boo straight into the bigger bed was due to her latest addiction - no, not the trying to steal my morning coffee - sleeping in our bed.  And why wouldn't she!  Not only is our mattress more comfortable than her little toddler mattress, but it also suits her sleeping style - that is, directly across the bed.

Yes, it is true. As long as I am sleeping in the lower bottom corner in a foetal position and Daddy doesn't mind the occassionally kick in the back, she can stretch herself out quite beautifully and have a wonderful sleep. And, if she can't sleep for whatever reason at 3am, she is patting our faces telling us she loves us...or, in a semi-sleep state, fluttering her delicate little three year old fingers over our faces like a butterfly. Truly, we are blessed. But we decided we need to sleep.

So I am glad to say that her room revamp is just about complete - there are a couple of little tweaks, but then I will post a photo of the revived bed.

In the meantime, let me share the most beautiful bedroom image that is almost exactly what I dearly wanted as a girl - a beautiful loft bedroom, tucked up and away just for me, where I could laze for hours reading books and staring out the window...

 
 
Boo's will be nothing like this stunning creation, but I know that it will be perfect, just for her ♥

Sweet dreams.
 
Hugs

HI Cath-
We bought a full size for my son too. He is ALL over the place when he sleeps. My other two have twin beds only becuase the room isn't big enough for two full.
I can't wait to see the finished project.
Thank you for all your kind super sweet words...Have a wonderful week friend!
XO
Kristin

Wow! That's one of the most gorgeous images I've ever seen.

Our master bedroom is has sloping ceilings (but not as much as this) and I love the cosy feel it gives to the room.

Oh, I can't wait to see your bed when it's finished! I've loved that loft bedroom (and the rest of the studio) from the moment I first saw it. Makes me want to start staple gunning some fabric to my ceiling! Here's to your peanut loving her new big girl bed!
