The Loft Bed is White!

I finally tackled painting Emory’s loft bed.
It took me about 3 hours and was NO fun!
It’s kinda hard to see the difference between the blonde wood and the white, 
but in person it looks great.
Also, do you spy another addition to her room?
The white table and chairs are from Ikea.
Exactly what she needed to complete her little “play house”.
I am so happy with how it turned out.
The next thing on my to-do list is change out her fan!
It’s hard to tell, but the fan blades are almost overtop of her bed…which is no good!
Unless I want her to take a a ride on them, I need to switch out the fan for a pretty little light.
I have a couple of ideas, but I am not sold on anything yet.
I can’t believe how much her room has changed already.
There is still lots to do in her new room, but I think it is slowly coming together.
Baby steps right?
Head on over here to see how the loft bed was converted from a bunk bed.

    oh my goodness! What a winner – I bet you can’t get her out of her room… if that was mine, I would have everyone over and never leave. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing – enjoy the rest of your day. xoxo Jalon

    It’s amazing! I can definitely see the difference between the wood finishes, and it looks great! I also love that you added drapery to soften up the bed. What a fun space. 🙂

    Hi! I’m in the SLC area, too! Love what you’ve done to your daughter’s room. My little girl is about the same age and we’re looking to do something similar with a bunk or loft bed. Where-oh-where is this discount fabric store you mentioned? 🙂

    P.S. I know it might not fit in with your master vision, but I kinda like the black stripes on the walls…ties in those pretty black and white animal silhouettes.

    Oh, it’s just darling. The white makes a huge difference. That room screams, “hours of fun!” That table will get so much use. My daughter is turning six and still sits at her little table every day . . draws and plays restaurant for hours.

    I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a “pink girl” but I’m totally diggin’ the soft pink you brought into her room. Good call! It’s perfect.

    I’m wondering–did you prime her bed with anything special so that the knots won’t bleed through?

    Please keep the stripes on the wall and the drapes. They are fantastic! What an amazing room for a little girl! xx

    Love the little play kitchen. Does it have a brand name? It is exactly what I am looking for my little girl 🙂

    Does anyone know where this bed if from? If it is the IKEA bed, is it stable without the bottom bunk attached?

    I just love what you did with her room i I featured a picture of the bed on my blog today, hope you don’t mind.
    Have a nice day

    I just got the same bunk bed for my girls and need to paint it white. If you don’t mind, can you tell me if you had to prime the bed prior to painting it, and if you did it with a brush and roller or did you spray it. Thanks

    I was wondering the same thing as okdoki about the painting process. I actually think I might paint it before assembling though. Did you prime then paint? And what was your process.

    It looks AMAZING! You are my inspiration. I had been to Ikea and would just stare and stare at the beds…one loft bed way too high, the other way too low and then there was this bunk bed that was the PERFECT size but I didn’t know if it’d be stable as a loft. Thank you for showing me that it is! Can’t wait to do this for my daughter as we prepare her room to be shared with her baby sister.
