Toddler bed fit for a princess

My little girl was growing out of her crib and we didn't want to pay the $70 dollars it was going to take just to get the conversion kit to toddler (which consists of two boards that match the finish of the crib and will only last at most a yr before we would have to go to a twin). That is when I started designing this bed. I knew I wanted an upholstered headboard and I wanted rails on the sides. Here it is almost finished!!! I love to go into her room and gathering more inspiration for wall art, by looking at her bed. The HUGE bonus is, she loves her new bed!! The bed took me a day to build and has taken me about two weeks to upholster, but that's just because I have a toddler. I would estimate the total cost including wood, screws, fabric and foam batting to be around $100. Not bad when you consider I got exactly what I wanted!! The next project which is already in the works is her bedding, which will perfectly match her headboard. I also created some wall art this morning in about an hr that is so cute and goes perfectly with her theme, PRINCESS!! I will be sharing that shortly in a separate post, so stay tuned!!
