So the littles can now officially climb into her crib…. Terrifying.  So we are rapidly finalizing our plans for the quickly approaching big girl bed.  Luckily, we already have the majority of the pieces as I have discussed before { Here & Here }.  The problem is, I keep looking at Pinterest!  Darn you inspirational pictures.  Just when I thought I had everything figured out, I see this AMAZING room!

I mean… seriously, I am moving in immediately!  Love the canopy detail, LOVE the fabric, love that the pattern is on the inside { totally unexpected }, if only I was working on a project with a West Elm Daybed that I wanted to make into a canopy….OH YEAH!  Soooo, the plan has changed once again & this is it!!!  I have even come up with a knock your socks off, “why didn’t I think of that?” idea for the canopy.  And yes, it came from looking around my house & using something that I already have… Are you guys listening to that advice yet? ; )
Now I just needed a visual with the fabrics I had already selected { & purchased }.  So this is kinda what I am envisioning…  

Pretty fun right?  While I would love to continue the fabric down onto the bed, I don’t think I am going to have enough yardage to accomplish that  & I am not really loving the idea of buying more fabric.  But at least it continues to be an option down the road.  We already have a white Pottery Barn daybed cover that should be a perfectly good stand in.  I figured I would probably have enough material left to create some euro shams though… that should help reinforce the inspiration idea.

I think I have also talked myself into painting the daybed…  After I saw the one on “Pretty Litttle Liars” painted { yes I watch a teenage mellow drama.  Don’t Judge! }

I’m really excited about this project, but less enthused by the fact that the littles is quickly approaching 2.  Where has the time gone?!?  Keep your eyes out for this upcoming project.  At the rate she’s going it could be going up any day now.
