Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today! Let me show you my easy girls room cozy corner !
Both my girls are sleeping in the Ikea Kura bed. It converts easily from a low bed into a high bed, simply, by turning it around! My older daughter uses it as a low bed and sofa at the same time, she hangs out with friends and it’s awesome. You can see it here. My younger daughter still has it up high, because she really enjoys playing underneath. She mostly uses it for role play and has so much fun to hide in there!
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to change up the look of it underneath. I did hang curtains inside the frame just to hide away the blue part at the back of the one side, which really doesn’t go with the whole pinkish and white style in her room. So now, I’ve finally changed it up a bit more and made her a real cozy corner in there. All floors in our house are tile, so I put rugs and foam mats in the girls rooms to be warmer and more comfy when they play.
This is how it looked before. I started, by covering up the blue parts at the back of the bed. All I did here, was use gift wrapping paper that I measured, cut out and glued onto the blue parts.
Then, I exchanged the green foam tiles for pink ones and hung up a previously made paper garland, pom pom garland and a string of lights. The paper garland was super easy, I just cut out triangles in different card stock and glued the top on a piece of twine. The pom pom garland is just as easy, with a needle, I added different coloured pom pom’s on a thread.
And because a cozy corner wouldn’t be quite one without something to lay on or against, I added a lot of cushions to it! I did have the curtains before and they just make it even nicer to hide in there, which is what my daughter, and any kid probably, really loves!
This bed is so much fun and Amelie really enjoys it even more now with the lights and all. But you could easily do this with any high bed or just in a small spot in your kids bedroom using furniture and fabric to make a little cozy corner, hangout or such.
Anyways, this weekend she had a bunch of girlfriends over and had it converted into a pet hotel… they didn’t even wanna come out of there anymore 🙂 So much play fun!
