I then made a little bunting with fabric scraps to act as tie-backs. I used a curtain wire kit (£1 from poundland!) for the curtains on the side of the bed, while the canopy was looped over the wood frame itself. I already had lots of woodland theme little blankies but needed new covers for my single duvet and pillows. Very had an offer for these stripey ones at £10 for a twin-pack (excellent for the toilet training I imagine!). I'm currently eyeing up the bring green fitted sheets in ikea as the plain white ones are boring.
And the biggest bargain? The bed itself was second hand. £20!
Grand total? £66.
Well worth it in my opinion. I cant wait until D is old enough to rotate the bed into its cabin bed position. Then I will leave the voile curtains on the bottom to create a Den (possible with some felt leaves on ribbon streamers?). I'm also liking the idea of cladding the top of the bed with real wood to make a treehouse - and possibly a slide. I also love the idea of glueing real branches to it with felt leaves and little birds. Too far?
