When we went to Ikea after Christmas to look at cribs, we picked up a few other furniture items for the Baby’s room with Christmas money sent from my Mom for the baby’s room (THANKS MOM!!!)
We wanted to have a twin bed in the room, well let me change that, we bought a twin mattress a while back so the room could function as a guest room (when it wasn’t buried underneath clutter). Because we already have a new mattress, it is important to have the twin bed in the room. For the bed, we picked out the Fjellse Bed Frame, for $29.99, plus, the bed Sladen bed Slates for $20. Making the bed frame a grand total of $59.99.
Why I picked this bed frame: First, is that it is unfinished wood, leaving us free to paint it as we see fit. It is important to me to design the room so that as the child grows, there will be places for them to have a creative outlet. It is nice that the frame can be painted to match the growing tastes and styles of the child. Second, the bed is close to the ground. It is about as high as a mattress and box springs, making it a great bed for a toddler. Third, it was cheap. Which means that I don’t have to stress about it if or when the child attempts to “ruin” the furniture.
For the nightstand, we picked the Rast Nightstand, $14.99. Once again, it can be painted, and is a matching height for the bed.
The room has wooden floors, and to cover them we decided on the Barnslig rug, $29.99, to match the duvet.
