I made the curtains, spruced up an Ikea mirror (more on that coming up), and sewed some pillows.
My hubby made these bookshelves, they've been so perfect and I enjoy them every time I see them. We modified these building plans which were pretty simple to use and they hold a good amount of books which is a must in this house!
Ribbon strung on two World Market hooks is perfect for hanging the girls' artwork. And the little chalkboard easel was a great find from a yard sale - $10.

And lastly, THE bed! My mom saw this in an alley (in a sketchy neighborhood), told me about it, and we went to get it right away! It was very dark, old, nasty wood but the lines were so great I knew it needed a home. It's a King size bed frame. I wanted to use it for my girls' bed but there was no way we could fit a king size bed in this room, so, after a while I realized a full size bed turned sideways is the same width as a king size bed, we shortened the side rails, painted it a pale blue and Voilà!! Perfect, chunky, short & wide little girls bed that looks like it popped right out of a fairy tale!
Well, there it is. I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know if there was anything I missed that you were interested in. Up next, I'm thinking it will be the living/dining/school/library/computer area.
