**I'm really excited about this post. I have something I'm pretty tickled with to share with you!! And I've kept quiet about it for 2.5 days because I didn't have "good" photos yet. (my good, not Brad's good!! Although, I wonder if he'd travel across town. . .)
Believe me, I am not good with exciting news.
Can't keep that secret!!
But I did.
And I'm glad, because. . .well, you'll see!!!

So you know how I was talking about pallet furniture and mentioned this bed over at Ashley Ann's?

Well, I did it! It's done!!

A toddler sized pallet bed, just for Little Sister!!!

Starting out, I really didn't know what it was going to look like. I sort of figured it out along the way — which is generally how I do things! ha! But I really like the addition of the head & foot boards. (There were a couple of practical reasons as well, which I'll share in a later post.)

Plus, as much as LOVE Ashley's room, I really hate straight copying. There's generally nothing wrong with it, but I'd rather introduce a bit of my own self into what ever it is I'm doing. And that makes me feel like this bed is mine, rather than Ashley's. I like that.

Especially since I've already done my fair share of copying from this room! Look familiar? Yes, it's not exactly the same, but pretty darn close!
And my white, pine floors? Yup. You guessed it.
Ashley Ann was among my inspirations.

Hope she doesn't mind. . . ;)

I added the side rail after Little took her first afternoon nap in it. Though she didn't fall out, a lot of her stuff did & it just made me a little nervous. I think I'm going to go back and shorten it though. Didn't leave very much room for her to get in & out!!

Best part is, both the girls love the new bed. Big Sister has already put in her order for one just like it. (Tom, I'm going to need a couple more pallets!)

Hi, I came over from Jenny’s blog. Such a cute bed. I just finished making one from plans on Knock Off Wood, but I used new wood. I love the look of the pallets, but isn’t it rough? Did you have to sand it a lot? It looks great though, and love the coasters on the bottom! (and I’m coveting you blog background! LOVE IT!)

OMG! again :) It looks amazing…. I like it better than ashley's style! how incredible that you can build things like that. I usually have the idea but have to count on hubby's effort to put it together. Beautiful!

It is just perfect for Little to get her first experience in a big girl bed. She's not a baby anymore. :(

Jenny:

Um, that's AWESOME!!! And now that I have visited Ashley Anne, I see where your inspiration comes from. Very nice! I'm sure Tom can part with a few more pallets.

Lori, the entire room is lovely. What took my breath away was the dressers, particularly the shade of green. Would you share the color, please?

P.S. Your girls are adorable.
