I love miniature models of things. So it is not surprising that I am kind of obsessed with little fairy/gnome gardens. I could NOT WAIT until my kids were old enough to help me make a gnome garden. I was having a great time buying little bridges, chickens and grills. I created a whole Pinterest board pinning adorable ideas. But I found myself putting it off. Why? We will go off on a little tangent here, but bear with me.
I was struggling as to what to put in one of the corners of my daughter’s room. Her room is very small and space is at a premium. However, I wanted her to have a space where she could play and enjoy. So when I came across the blog Zevy Joy (this post) and saw the DIY canopy that she created, I knew that would be perfect! She made her daughter’s just a little different so I did include the steps that I took to make my canopy here. Besides, can there really be enough tutorials on how to make a DIY canopy out there?
I have a messy secret. It can be found behind the doors of the entry closet. It is a hodge podge of crap that we have accumulated over the past 10 years. I don’t think I ever took everything out of here to purge and clean. Ever. And it shows. It was time for an entry closet redo…
As you know from previous posts, I got rid of the crib in my daughter’s room and have been working to convert it to a toddler room. You can see the inspiration board here. I have been working on some other art projects for her room. You and see these projects here and here. In addition to those projects, I have painted the room, replaced the skinny oak trim with 1x4s painted white, painted the closet doors, set up the new twin bed, got new bedding and created a girl room gallery wall over the bed.
I had this fabric take along house done for months and gave it to my son for Christmas but never got around to sharing this on the blog. I made a girl version for a friend’s daughter (which you can see here) and another similar one for my daughter for Christmas. Pinterest has so many girl versions to gather ideas for but it was almost impossible to find examples for a boy version, unless you wanted to make a barn. No worries, I got you covered;).
