Remember my recent trip to Ikea with my fun 11-year-old?
(If you're debating a trip to Ikea, you should definitely read this post for a peek at what you'll find.)
Well, we finally finished getting her bedroom put together, and wanted to show a few pictures. (I'm so pleased with how everything turned out!)
Now, I'm normally not an Ikea-furniture-kind-of-girl. I love beautiful (heavy, hardwood ~ traditional) furniture, but Caroline really wanted a loft bed. She had a pretty white Ethan Allen bed that we'd gotten from my sister-in-law a few years ago, but since Reagan finally left her tiny room for a real room in our new house, she managed to snag the bed. (Caroline was thrilled – she'd been hoping for a new “fancy” bed!)
After looking around online and at a few local stores I didn't see what we were looking for, so when she fell in love with this set (and I fell in love with the price), I knew it was meant to be. Here's the cost breakdown:
- Loft Bed $129
- Metal Desk Top $99
- Junior Chair $34
- Blue Night Stand $49.99 (my favorite)
- Magnets for Metal Boards $5.98
- White Lantern Lights (we have to work on these still) $7.99
- Artificial Plants $3.99
- Bedding from Kohl's $50
- TOTAL = $379.95
(The cords on those little lantern lights are about to drive me crazy ~ we've got to get them hung up somehow!)
I love (love, love, love!) this night stand – it's got a whole in the back for an outlet so she can charge her Kindle at night, and it's just so cute!
Have you gotten any fun furniture recently at Ikea, or come up with other great ways to save? Bedroom furniture can get expensive, so I'd love to hear your tips.
I'd love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
