I am so proud of Ella Kate's new bed that I could possibly explode at any minute.
I found this bed at a consignment shop when Jake was a baby. Not very manly, I know. But I absolutely loved it and when Ella was born, I knew I could use it for her one day. Little did I know that I would keep her in her crib until she was 3!!! So I have had the bed waiting patiently in my garage for about 4 years now...much to Michael's dismay. I cannot count the number of times he told me to get rid of it because I would never use it.
Back to the consignment shop...I found this beautiful, old spindle bed for $15!! Yes, $15!! Part of it needed repair which my wonderful Papa did for me (4 years ago!) but otherwise it was perfect. I have been sanding on it for weeks now, thus my pride at finally being finished. I think it turned out just perfect for a sweet little girl!
Ella Kate is thrilled with her new bed. She could not be more excited to finally be a big girl! Oh, and Michael's mom found the precious Pottery Barn bedding at a yard sale...thanks Nana!! :)
By the way...thanks for letting this mom be very proud of her bed! :)
