A Princess Bedroom with a Loft Bed

It’s been over a year since I posted the original pictures of Malea’s loft bed!  Can you believe it has taken me that long to finish her bedroom?  I know, it’s terrible.  The thing that took the longest was getting the motivation to paint her entire loft bed.  I realized that the motivation might never come so I finally hired a friend to do it for me.  Best money I’d spent in a long time, it looks amazing and I didn’t have to do a thing!

Before I show you the after pictures I want to remind you of the before.  This was taken last December, right after my husband finished building it.

Here’s what it looks like now.

She loves sleeping way high up in her princess bed, and I love that the stairs provide so much extra storage!  I added these vinyl numbers to the stairs, just for fun.

I also made her some new curtains for her room and the play house.  They are coordinating patters, with all the colors from her room, in the fabric.

I love all the little cafes on this print.

Under her bed is her play house.  I love that she has her own little play area down there and she and her friends have so much fun playing in it.

She also has her very own closet for all of her princess dresses.  When she’s older this will be a great spot for her to have a little TV and a bean bag, or something like that.

On the other side of her room is her huge Barbie house that her grandparents got her for Christmas.  She is good about keeping it nice and tidy, in fact the other day she told her babysitter, “I have to put everything in the right places so mommy knows I’m a good cleaner.”

To the right of her bed is her recently customized closet.   I honestly didn’t think she would really care about it that much, but I was wrong.  She absolutely loves it. She shows everyone that comes over and she tells me all the time she loves how pretty it is.  I love that she appreciates cleanliness and organization.  Makes my heart proud.

Above her closet is her name and some plates from my grandma.  I used to have them hanging in her playhouse but one day she decided this was where she wanted them.  She’s very particular about where things go, wonder where she get’s it from. {wink}

On the opposite side of the room is her dresser.  I love this quote because I truly believe that someday she will do great things for the Lord!

That’s the tour of Malea’s princess room.  There are still a few things left to do, like paint the chandelier and paint inside the playhouse, but other than that it’s finished!  What do you think?  Have you ever thought about building a loft bed for your kids?

  1. LOVE IT! I did see this idea on pinterest and thought it a wonderful idea! I have 2 girls in one room, however, so bunk beds is more probable in our situation. I love the lost with a place to play while they’re growing and then turning it into a place to study, watch t.v. and read when they’re bigger. What a nice job you and your husband did. The whole room is adorable!!

  2. I would like to move in please!

  3. I love it! What an absoultely extraordinary bedroom. She is a special little girl!

  4. Wow! This looks sooo cute!! How long did the loft bed take to build? I am curious because I would love for my husband to attempt this.

    • It took him a full 3 days. He worked on it for a couple weekends. It was SO worth the work, she LOVES it!

        I’m really interested in making one of these for my daughter for Christmas but my husband has just pointed out it would need to built in her room due to the size as it wouldn’t go through the door. Is this the case? How much can be completed before assembling? My uncle is a joiner so was hoping he would carry out the project

      • My husband built it pieces outside, to keep the mess down, and then he brought the pieces in and put them together in the room. I think he had 3 big pieces when he brought it in. We also painted it in the room after it was all put together.

  5. Absolutely Wonderful!!! It’s like a dream come true for a girl!!! You did a fabulous job on it!! Definately pinning it!!

  6. I have a question about the bed, is it a toddler bed or a twin size bed?

    • It’s a twin size bed. In the first “before” picture we still had her toddler bed mattress in there but then we bought her a twin mattress and it fits perfectly!

  7. Adorable!!

  8. Great job Anna!!!! Glad to see your blog……I loved it.Keep posting dear.

  9. Such a lovely finished product…your daughter must be so pleased. I feel guilty now, will have to get working on my daughter’s bedroom makeover project during the school holidays I think.

  11. How old was she when you started letting her sleep up there? I would love to have one built for my daughter but I’m nervous about the height.

  12. Oh man. This is SO awesome 😀 I love love love it. It’s so perfect.

    That is so cute! Theres so much space underneath the bed!

  15. I love love this idea!! I would love to build one like this. She loves playing teacher and the little loft would be a perfect set up for her classroom! Did your husband use a guide or plan, how did he come up with the blueprints to build the loft bed?
