Ikea Bedroom Inspiration and a White Bathroom

OK Gals
 I know you love a bedroom story and it's a while since I did one.  Ya see the thing is I've been threatening to make over the Beach House Brats bedrooms' ever since I started this blogging odyssey, but it's finally about to happen.

My darling mother has offered to fund my little Beach House Brat's transition from cot to bed. She is now over three, so it's about time she upgraded, don't you think? I have got her in a good bed time routine and I am hoping it won't occur to her that when she is in a bed she can get out at will. Yeah right!!!!!

So a friend and I made the pilgrimage out to Ikea this week,with our little bed testers in tow, and mine agreed that she would dearly love the Hemnes Day Bed for her new sleeping arrangements.  Now this bed has got it all.  A day bed by day and a double bed by night.  Not sure about the quality of the mattress arrangements but at less than 15 kilos we can up grade that as she grows.

Here it is as the day bed configuration.  It also has storage draws, which to me make it perfect.  It is a solid build and has that beachy feel that I love, so I can't wait to hand back the cot.....thanks for the loan Cheryl, what are ya doing Saturday?.......  and get my hands on my darling girls bedroom.

As for my big BHB, he wants this kinda thing, in white of course, with a little space for him to hang out underneath.  The trouble with 8 year olds is they know what they want and they know how to get it.  I would love another Hemnes bed for him.  So my mission is to do one bedroom and hope that he will fall in love with the idea of having a daybed in his room so much that by the time he gets his makeover, he will be begging me for the same as his sister.  That's the plan anyway.

Random Bathroom shot, just cause I liked it.

Well I'm off on a date, yes that's right a date.  Mel over at Georgica Pond has invited me to lunch here.  I'm due there in 40 and I am blogging , whilst still getting ready.  So gotta fly.  Have a great weekend guys.
