The Jenny Lind bed looks casual but sophisticated in our boy’s room!
9 Jenny Lind beds, from affordable to high end, rounded up below.
All of these were beds we considered before we bought our Jenny Lind bed. But first, I have “before” pictures to show you what a game changer the bed is in his room.
Our Jenny Lind Bed Review In Our Boy’s Room
The before, with his old cheap bed:
This bed from Wayfair (the bottom part of a bank bed) was a bummer. The wood dented, almost just from my kids breathing on it! I have never seen soft wood like that. The mattress sagged at the head because the bed was not made with enough slats.
His New Black Jenny Lind Bed:
Update: We have loved his black Jenny Lind bed for the past five years now!

9 Spindle Beds / Jenny Lind Beds
Scroll to shop the beds:
one | two | three (clearance!) | four
five | six | seven (wow!) | eight | nine
My other favorite is the top right (#2), because visually this is just the prettiest bed of them all! This also is one of the few spindle beds that come in King size. The best deal is number seven – amazing!
We also considered some of the more affordable beds, and briefly considered buying an antique freshly painted off Etsy. An Etsy search is worth checking out if you want to go the antique route!
We wanted a higr quality bed that would last. We could have gone the antique spindle bed route, but with a teenage boy I didn’t want to replace another bed in a few years. We purchased his bed from Crate and Barrel (this is his exact bed here) in a full size
Despite being full size, it doesn’t visually take up a lot of room. Because it is low to the ground it doesn’t look heavy in the room – it feels sleek and somewhat modern. The bed is a nice balance between masculine but nice looking, and will transition well to the teenage years.
I am so pleased with the quality. Solidly built, with a metal center support under the slats as well. No sagging mattress at the head this time!

Other Details In His Room
Robbie’s walls are Sherwin Williams Extra White (which we have all over our home – see this post for more examples of how Extra White looks in my home in different lights). It looks great against the black of the bed.
London Art / Duvet / Please Sleep pillow / Triangle Pillow
As far as bedding for his Jenny Lind bed, we love his blue and white duvet. Robbie isn’t supposed to eat up here but he got chocolate on it after Christmas. I was able to get it right off with a little Shout Out stain spray. It doesn’t feel too “nice” for older children.
The nightstands were a budget buy that we picked up from Target! They are no longer sold sadly.
I bought him that modern bean bag chair to read in because I remember loving my bean bag as a kid. After our dog threw up on it last year, I washed the cover and it came out perfectly – so I can attest to its’ longevity now too. The bean bag itself is nice and firm. It has a cute nautical rope on the back.
I get asked if his jute chevron rug is scratchy – it is awesome and actually soft! We liked it so much I bought a second one for our playroom. (See the playroom here). It is made of jute and chenille. That is a great combo- the jute makes the chenille strong and durable, and the chenille makes the jute not scratchy. It doesn’t shed either.
If you like this rug you can see how it looked in our bedroom, before we moved it up to the kids’ playroom!

Dresser / Nautical Framed Flags / Lamp / Striped Camp Stools
Those framed nautical flags on the wall above make me happy! A nod to my coastal style but also Robbie’s love for the water. Speaking of…
This is the other side of the room. I found that fishing poster AND the magnetic wooden frame AND the wooden hooks off Amazon! Thank you, Prime! I am obsessed with his fish poster, mostly because I used to hang these kinds of posters on my wall as a kid.
If you click on their Amazon shop you see they make these “collection” posters for everything: seashells, birds, animals, etc. and for all areas of the country.
I laughed with my husband because when I told him about my favorite animal posters, he told me about his favorite Jenny McCarthy poster he had up on his wall.

Fish Poster / Magnetic Wooden Frame / Hooks / Book and Toy Shelf
Those affordable wooden hooks are handmade and pretty neat! I didn’t bother putting them into the stud since these just hold his hats. I put the screw right into the drywall. We’ve had them a year now- they are an affordable way to update a space with function.
That book and toy shelf have been shared by two of my kids. Moms of younger kids- as your kids get older they have a lot less stuff! It DOES get easier in that regard. Robbie doesn’t have nearly the same amount of toys he used to. I am hanging on to the stuffed animals for now because I am not ready to let them go!
His book / toy shelf is versatile in that way. We use this as his “back up” bookshelf since his other bookshelf is filled.
Is that London print fun or what? Oversized is the way to go with children’s art- and it’s not too heavy either that it scares me above the bed. I did put it on screws that are in the studs, however.
We installed basic custom rollers (from a local company here called All Phase Blinds) that block the light.
Overall I think it was the Jenny Lind bed that really made his room come together. It is polished and sophisticated, but cute enough for a child’s room!
