Updated room found HERE
– Lets start with the ‘Floor Bed’ itself. Most Montessori Bedrooms you will find just a mattress on the floor (which works great!) but I am blessed with a slightly germaphobic husband who immediately informed me that without raising the mattress in some way it could fester mould underneath it. So our solution: We bought the *Kendall Trundle from Pottery Barn Kids* and their trundle mattress. The modifications we made were simple ones. We didn’t add the wheels that were included because we weren’t using it as an actual trundle to another bed, AND we didn’t need her rolling her bed all around the room, which she totally would have done. We added some pads to the bottom to help raise the bed a tiny bit. As the bed was slightly raised, we were also able to use our Bissell to vacuum under the bed (which we knew was always going to be a challenge!) slightly easier. The *side rail* is from *Ikea* and is called the *VIKARE guard rail.* The side rail kind of defeats the reasoning behind the floor bed but it made me more comfortable with the idea because she is a vicious sleeper and I just wanted to try and prevent her rolling out as best as we could. It took us a while to find the right mattress for our little girl, after reading pages and pages of reviews and looking at sites like leesa vs casper we finally found the perfect one! We spent quite a long time trying to find the right mattress since our friend told us her daughter had bed bugs and they had to visit https://www.pestcontrolexperts.com/ to find a pest control expert who would get rid of them! I definitely didn’t want Joie sleeping with bed bugs!
The mirror by the bed is from *Ikea.*
-The dresser is from *Ikea* but I switched out the knobs for a more vintage look!
-The bookshelf is by *GuideCraft* and purchased from Diapers.com
-The TeePee is from *Tnees Tpees or @tnees_tpees on IG.* Talk about a well made product! This is my all time favorite part of Joie’s new room! She loves it and I love that she does. Honestly I based the entire room’s color scheme on this teepee and I think its the perfect center piece for her room.
-The wooden rocking chair was a gift from my grandmother, Joie’s great-grandmother.
-I actually just made the “J” picture using Adobe Illustrator and had it printed through Vistaprint
-The “She Leaves a Little Bit of Sparkle” is a print from an awesome shop called *Life With Peanut or @lifewithpeanut on IG.*
