We’re lucky enough to have a five bedroom house. Well, I say five bedroom but the fifth bedroom is just about big enough to swing a cat in! It’s strictly an office but we do house our youngest in there who up until a couple of weeks ago fitted in very nicely. But, as children do, he’s grown! Quickly and suddenly he no longer fits in his cot bed.
“I hate my bed!” he cries when I take him to bed.
Time for a shift about. My step daughter has a large bedroom at our house but as she only stays 4 nights a month we decided to put her in the little room and move youngest into the bigger room. The problem is, finding a full size bed to fit in the small space that we have.
I really wanted a day bed in there, maybe one from DayBeds.com but unfortunately they are all slightly too big.
After much searching on the internet, I came across a brilliant find at the ever wonderful Ikea. It’s basically a mattress with legs! But it fits!!!
So step-daughter and I went shopping, chose the colours, bought the bed linen, curtains and paint and we’re all ready to go. She’s happy, I’m happy and most of all no more cries of “I hate my bed!”
