The moment I saw Pinky get her leg nearly over her crib to climb out I knew it was time to start thinking about getting her a big girl bed. It was within days of that first try that she was able to get her self over the side of her crib and from that moment she started sleeping with us. I just wasn’t comfortable with her climbing out and hurting herself. I spent lots of time trying to decide between going with a toddler bed or a twin. I wanted the bed to be low to the ground. When she sleeps she is all over the place to we wanted to be sure she would be close to the ground in the event she did roll off the bed.
Because a toddler bed only lasts a few years we decided to go with a twin. So I set off to find a low profile twin bed with girly, feminine touches. That’s when I discovered South Shore Furniture and was offered the opportunity to review one of their children’s beds. They have so many options for kids bedroom furniture and any finish you could want. When they showed me the Tiara Collection it was like they read my mind on what I was looking for!
The Tiara collection comes in a nice clean pure white finish and has lovely soft, feminine curves and features. We received the Tiara Twin Mates Bed and bookcase headboard. The bed and the headboard arrived in two heavy boxes ready-to-assemble. Taking all the pieces out we got a little overwhelmed but once we started to go over the instructions and get all the hardware together it was a lot less overwhelming. It took us a few hours (I’m guessing around 5 hours, though we did it in broken up sessions) to get both the bed and headboard together. The instructions made it easy to understand, each of the pieces are labeled with a letter so that you can easily match it up with the instruction diagrams.
The bed is very well made and solid, I am very happy with it and know it will last her for many years to come. It looks just as adorable in the photos as it does in person. It has drawers at the bottom which are great for extra storage which is always great to have in kids rooms. They slide out and in easily and smoothly so I don’t have to worry about Pinky struggling with them. The drawers have very chic hardware that adds just the right amount of a sparkly girly touch. The headboard doubles as a bookcase for your child to store favorite books, photos and toys and is another great storage area.
The curvey details at the bottom of the bed and on the headboard make it perfect for a little girls room but it’s also not too girly that you could outgrow the style. It’s very versitile so wether its in a toddler, tween or teens room it can fit to match the decor.
Her room is turning out great and the South Shore Tiara Collection Twin Mates Bed and Headboard was the perfect solution for both a girly transitional bed that is also multipurpose for lots of storage. Pinky loves being able to put her favorite toys and books on the headboard, which helps her to feel more comfortable transitioning to a new room and big girl bed.
