Materials: KURA bed, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, wood primer and high gloss black spray paint.
Description: I love the look and functionality of the Kura bed but wanted to make it a little more girly to fit in with my daughter’s Paris themed room. I purchased the Kura bed from Craigslist, primed the wood with spray primer, and spray painted it black with high gloss paint.
For the panels I brushed Mod Podge glue over scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has so many types of scrapbook paper that you could really find any pattern to fit in to a child’s room theme. I added Christmas lights underneath the bed to give it a beautiful homey feel. My 3 year old absolutely loves her new bed and so do I!
