Pink Saturday -- 3/27/10

For this week's Pink Saturday, I wanted to share one of my favorite pieces of furniture. This is actually my childhood bed. I can't remember exactly, but I think that I got this bed when I was in grade school. I was so excited because it was pink, and as I got older I thought it was cool because it reminded me of a couch. I always had a bunch of pillows and pretended that my room was a cool hangout spot as opposed to a bedroom.

My mom finally allowed me to take the bed with me once I had a bigger place (with an extra bedroom) and when she finally decided to turn my bedroom at home into an office. I was excited to have the bed because, well it was my childhood bed, and I always wanted to have my daughter grow up with this bed. It currently is in my guest bedroom and is great because it has a trundle bed under it, so you can sleep 2 people in my guest room.

I painted my guest room a blue/purple color, and sewed the curtains from a fun fabric I found at JoAnns. I would like to make some fun pillows, but of course that is on my long list of things I am hoping to accomplish =)

I hope everyone is having a great Pink Saturday. Please visit Beverly's blog for more information on Pink Saturday.

And the Pink Saturday participant blog that I visited this week is Le Chateau des fleurs. I love all of her little parties she throws for her 3 kids, especially the Alice in Wonderland party.

  2. That would be a perfect bed for a little girl or a teen. It's wonderful...and the quilt is so pretty. Happy Pinks and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I wish I still had my childhood bedroom set. My parents bought me new furniture when they moved into their last home and got rid of the other stuff. It was actually my mom's when she was a kid and I miss that set so much. I'll remember that for Ellie though. LOL!! XOXO
