Big Boy Bed

Big Boy Bed time is rapidly approaching. I mention it to H every once in a while and the other day, out of the blue, he said "I want a big boy bed." So I'm on the hunt. I'd like to get a trundle bed set. And, Henry's room has this really cool slanted ceiling on the east side of the house, so when my mom spotted this Riley bed from Pottery Barn Kids I checked it out:

I measured yesterday and it's *perfect*. The width of the bed would fit perfectly between the window and the slanted ceiling spot, the back board piece isn't too tall and it has the required trundle. I'm a bit torn on the trundle, as it's expensive and isn't attached to the bed. I'm tempted to just get a simple metal trundle for much cheaper, but then I'll have to add some sort of fabric to hide it. That might be a pain. And of course the price tag, complements of PBK is painful!

I had a trundle bed as a kid and I never used the trundle. I also never had sleepovers so perhaps that was a reason.
I left you something on my blog.

I say go for it. You'll be bummed if you have to make something else fit and it doesn't look right. I think you'll get lots of use out of it since there are several cousins who may be visiting, right? We are going to do a trundle for Meg (moving to CA and anticipating lots of cousins sleeping over). We bought a Charles Rodgers bed for Meg and plan to add the trundle.
