A Bed of One's Own

To me, a bed has always been a sanctuary. A place to go and rest, to relax, to cuddle and read. A place to rest your head at the end of a long day, and to wake up full of promise early each morning.

After hunting far and wide for affordable toddler beds we came to one conclusion: we had to build them ourselves. And in a family of creative, constructive and artsy types, this wasn't a problem. Made for around $80 worth of wood and paint, these beds were built using simple instructions yielded in a quick Google Search for Free Toddler Bed Plans with slight modifications, because of course we can't do anything without modifications.

But what are beds without bedding?
So I quickly set to work, finishing two toddler quilts in time for Christmas, and then two matching afghans in time for Valentines Day.

I'm so jealous of the cuteness that I almost want to crawl in these beds at night. Maybe it's time to work on a sanctuary of my own!
