Avery's Big Girl Bed

By September, Avery had become highly skilled at jumping out of her crib, so Ez decided to take the rail off the front and convert it into a toddler bed. It took her 5 seconds to learn she could crawl out of her bed and into ours...every night for the next 2 months. So, we decided it was time for an upgrade. I found this antique twin bed on craigslist, and thought it would be perfect in a creamy off-white. I also thought it would be a great idea to spray the bed for a store bought finish...what a nightmare. Ten coats of latex, oil primer and paint later Ez finally conquered the annoying yellow-brown tannins that kept bleeding through every layer. Ez finally finished it and Avery loves it! Here is the before and after of her new Big Girl Bed.

I am in love with this room. Okay you have to help me decorate. I am so jealous. I was really excited to hang out this weekend but do you think I could have a rain check. I just want to keep Piper home this weekend. I am still a little paranoid. I still think we definitely need to hang out. Let me know if your up for hanging out during the week and maybe we can come visit you. If not it is totally fine.
