My oldest daughter was beyond needing a "big girl bed" - the poor thing couldn't "fit" in her toddler bed, and had to sleep curled up! So I had her help me pick out a bed, and she ended up asking for the Lydia bed (and she mimed that she wanted a trundle, since she didn't know what it was called!). The bed itself was a quick build, but then I lost steam when it came to doing the trundle. It came along a few weeks after the bed was in her room, but, as you can see, I still haven't painted it... or added a bed to it.... Then she wanted a bed for all of her Sonic dolls (I think she's kinda transitioning from being a tom-boy to being a girly-girl... she picked out everything in her room!)... So I built her a "matching" bed based on the farmhouse doll bed plans. Side note - I haven't cleaned her room in a while, so ignore the fact that the floor needs swept!
