I thought it was time she graduated out of the toddler bed. (I know, she hasn't been a toddler for a few years now... but we are dealing with a very small bedroom!)
After a little hunting at some garage sales I finally found a bed complete with head & foot board, mattress & box springs, and a previous owner willing to deliver it to my house!
I sanded it down,
Applied a couple of coats of primer and a few coats of paint,
A birthday surprise for our now 5 year old!
Happy 5th Birthday Suzy-Q!
Good luck getting your sister off your new bed.
