The pillow mattress tutorial has inspired me to create a post about the making of the princess fort...so here it goes!
The princess fort is a central hub of activity in our house. Every night, the three of us crawl in to cuddle (we don't have much of a choice in there) and read bedtime stories before Sadie goes to bed. It's a prime "hide-and-seek" location, and Sadie has even spent the night under there on her pillow mattress. We love it!
The basic ingredients are:
- Kura Bed
- Curtain Rod (we used a shower curtain tension rod)
- Comfyness (pillow mattress, pillows, blankets, etc.)
- Bookshelves (or toys)
- String lights
Curtain = Altered shower curtain from Target
Flower Lamp = Perpetual Kid (this was a Christmas present!)
Pennants (just added) = fabric from Joanne. Here's the tutorial. (their current location is like their 15th incarnation...I have pennant placement ADD).
String Lights = Target
(Use the slats - the ceiling of the princess fort is valuable real estate!)
Bookshelves = Kidcraft
Pillow Mattress = Here is the tutorial.
The little lacy ruffly things that you see in the pillow fort is the bottom of the canopy!
Canopy = IKEA - no longer in stock, but this one's cute :)
So there you have it...I think the underneath of the Kura bed has awesome potential. Do it up, kids.
