I LOVE THIS ROOM! Wondering what size matresses were used... - I am planning out a room for my two girls who are currently in seperate rooms and have been endlessly searching for ideas...this fits the concept and purpose I had in mind perfectly. Book case steps are fantastic...only other thing I am looking to do is to add two slides, which is easily incorporated with your design on the two end caps:) Just curious as to the size of matress used so I can get a better idea for our room configuration with your design...thank you!
