Q: Our two daughters - ages 4 & 2 - share a room. We were gifted a beautiful antique twin-size four poster bed (not pictured) for our older daughter. This has been working fine for us since the baby has been in her crib. Now that we're looking at changing over to a twin bed for our younger daughter, I'm worried about finding a bed to "match" the antique. I know I'll never be able to find an exact replica of the four-poster and think two four-poster beds would overwhelm their small room (12x12). Any suggestions short of buying two new beds?
