Looking for a "big girl" bedroom set for my three year old daughter. Something affordable and durable, hoping to last well into her teen years(if possible). Simply, quality is a must.... Any ideas??

Just a word of advice. I wish I had gotten full sized beds instead of twin beds for the kids when they were ready to have a real bed. My three older kids are 13,16 and 20 and we just replaced their twin beds. I have a four year old and went ahead and got him a full sized bed. The twin beds never were really big enough.If you have room,opt for the full or even queen size, and go ahead and get a good mattress.They will use it for a long time!

Well I wouldn't buy a full size because as we just found out when we moved here the kids' bedrooms in some of these homes are so small. Our teen age daughter wanted a bigger bed when she moved and I am glad we didn't get one because her room is not big enough with her bed, dresser, and desk. I really don't understand these kids thinking they need a bigger bed. Now I can see a tall kid wanting a queen because queen is longer but I believe a full size bed is the same length as twin. Just my 2 cents worth.

Maybe that is because your teenager is a girl. I have a 15 year old 5'10" 185 lb. boy. When I go into his room in the morning all I see are these man size arms and legs hanging off the sides of his twin size bed. I am definitely getting him a full size bed for the new house!

Craigslist is awesome. Prices are good and the furniture over all is good.
Also, try Factory Outlet in Waxhaw. They have good furniture at very affordable prices.

Good luck!!

We purchased our daughter's bedroom furniture at Costco when she was 3 (now 9). It is white painted solid wood with nice detail. We got a great bed with a trundle and an armoir. It looks like pottery barn kids at a much better price, and has held up well through two (soon to be three) moves. We got twin mattresses at Costco too!
We just purchased a bed for our son at Rooms to Go Kids. I think the quality there varies depending on what you choose.
