Princess Bed Makeover

About 6 months ago we bought my little Kaitlyn a Princess Bed. We found it for an awesome deal at the RC Willey Clearance store and had gift cards that we needed to use so we got it. The bed has fabric that goes over different areas to make it look like a castle. It had one that went around the bottom part for a little hut under the bed. There was only one problem with this one piece. Every time the kids went under there they would pull it down. Some times I would crawl under there and pull it down with my knees as I went under. It was a pain, but I kept putting it back up. 

A few weeks ago my husband came to me and had a great idea. He thought of this all on his own. He wanted to make something out of wood to put around the bottom. I was a little skeptical of the idea. I didn't know how well it was going to work with the kids, but he told me to trust him so I did. 

Here is what it looked like before:

**I am going to apologize now about the pictures. Her room is small and she shares with her little brother so there is a crib in there too for him so its hard to get the best pictures of it!**

This really is not the best picture of it, but at least you can see the bottom part of the piece that kept falling off!

I am SO GLAD I trusted my husband. It turned out so CUTE! 

Here is what it looked like when he put it up:

He put a door in and a little window. He also did a side piece  with a door and window as well. I couldn't get a very good picture of that. 
Kaitlyn LOVES it! Oh and so does her little brother too!! They love to sit on opposite sides and open the window to see each other!

We wanted to add a little bit of Kaitlyn to it so we made a cute little thing to go above the door. We got on the computer and cut out "Princess Kaitlyn" in white vinyl. 

The other day we were at Michael's and Kaitlyn found some cute butterflies made of jewels. She begged me to get them. I said, "No" but then I got to thinking that these would actually go really cute on her bed. So we got two of them. 

We put one on each side of the the 
"Princess Kaitlyn."

I Love how it all turned out. Of course, little miss LOVES it too:)

Lastly, here is somewhat of a full picture of the bed!!
And Yes...little miss gets to slide down her bed every morning!!!!
