Madison's Toddler Bed

I am finally done.

This project goes to show how much of a procrastinator I am.

A project that should have taken me 2 weeks to do {generous amount of time}, has taken me a little over 4 months to complete.

But look at this end product:

She is a happy girl.  I am a happy Momma.

6 Months ago, it was decided that we would make Madison a toddler bed.  She's so petite that buying another set of bunk beds kind of seemed silly.

I love Ana White's site and her free furniture plans.  When I decided to make Madi a bed, I went to her site and printed off these plans.

The plans were easy enough because I did this project

I bought the wood.  I cut the wood.  I put the bed together.  I filled holes.  I sanded the bed.  I primed the bed.  I painted the bed.

We decided to paint the bed a chocolate brown.  It matches her room, and would be safe for any future children {because we thought about painting it pink to match her bookshelf}.

It's kind of weird seeing my little girl in her "Big Girl" bed.

But I'm so happy that I did it.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This looks so great! What a darling little bed and so fun that you made it yourself! Thanks for linking up!!


  2. It looks so good! I love that you made it yourself! WE've been thinking about a toddler bed for our daughter, but making one has never even registered. Might think about that one.:)

  3. How much did materials cost you?

  4. I too would like to know how much materials cost and where they were purchased.


Thanks for your comments!
I really appreciate them :)
