Pretty, Pretty Princess Bed

Pin It



"I
s this your pretty, pretty princess bed," asked my husband? "Absolutely!" I answered!! Don't you agree? I nestled under the covers yesterday afternoon for a lazy, summertime nap. There was no way I could wait for bedtime to snuggle in my new pretty, pretty princess bed. It was mere hours after it was delivered. I took my time making it up in all white. So peaceful and serene.

I've dreamed of a canopy bed since I was a little girl. After thirty-(cough) years, it is finally here! If you try calling in the morning...I might be sleeping in. If you try calling in the afternoon...I'm probably napping. If you call in the evening...well, early to bed is the way to go, right? Can you blame me? No? I knew you would understand! :)

You can see we've added a few things to our room. The rug, side tables, chair, dresser, and now the bed. Things might change up a bit, but the bed is there to stay!! It's a big difference from how the room looked before the floors and walls were done. I'm absolutely loving it!! Can you believe it went from this...

to this...
Some of you have emailed or commented with questions about the floor and wall finishes. I'm planning a whole post on what we did and what we used. If you have any further questions, leave a comment or zip me an email. The good thing about having a laptop is that it can be used anywhere...even from a pretty, pretty princess bed! (wink!)

  13. That's it. When all of my black cats die, I am only adopting white cats hence forth. I can't do the pretty, pretty white princess bed with my black cats! The room is shaping up so nicely, eh? Congrats! Now. Sink back into the pillows and chill. ~Mindy

  15. Amy, the bed looks scrumptious! Soooo comfy. Do you have a tv, refridgerator in the bedroom? Thinking you could just live there all the time! Just kidding. But I'd be spending lots of time there if I were you! Love it!

  16. I'm so glad the Princess finally got her wishes granted. You deserve about a week in that pretty bed after that Flea Market you just did. Enjoy your new beautiful space, and I for one am looking forward to the post with the details. I'm interested in the hows and whats of the flooring as we are looking for new flooring for our main level.

  17. Your beautiful room is really coming together. Love the bed and lines too BTW. And, what a great way to reuse a vintage kitchen cart. So cleaver!

  19. Hey princess ALVN, get out of the beautiful as I have a question for you. Where did you find that linky party button on your side bar? Also, I finally got around to writing the thrifty shopping article on floral frogs. I referred folks to your Junkologie blog versus here. Do you want me to change it to link here? The article has gone live but I can change it. Thanks for letting me include your ideas and photos, and for getting out of bed to answer my question.

  20. Beautiful bedroom. I have read again and again that a room looks even grander with a canopy bed...not sure how high your ceilings are, the canopy looks like it comes close to the ceiling,which makes the room look even cozier and charming.

    I redid my bedroom earlier this year, and would go upstairs just to look at it every hour or so...it is a wonderful thing to get the bedroom of your dreams.

    you are going to sleep like a true princess in it,

  30. Love the canopy bed! I've always wanted one too! Our ceilings are too low - your looks really great with your vaulted ceiling! You have done a wonderful job remodeling your room! I thought I was looking at a charming old cottage! Love how you're mixing old and modern, too!

  43. My daughter's bed is almost identical to yours. I've been trying to figure out how to use the canopy. Bingo! Now to find the appropriate fabric...

  46. Isn't that what every girl wants? I thinking about adding a canopy of some sort over the head of my bed. I just love the luxury and femininity of it. Your bed (and room) look gorgeous. I love how you've used so much white without it looking stark or boring.
