headboards in this post, now let's look at some other fun DIY projects. Since the girls are sharing a room, that leaves one extra bedroom to use as a playroom, so their bedroom does not have to house their toys. As far as function, this room really only needed to be a place they could sleep, read and enjoy some quiet time away from their toys.
They needed a bookshelf to hold all their books and it needed to be narrow enough to fit between their beds and tall enough for a fan and a lamp that they couldn't reach. I found this bookshelf on Craigslist for $25, painted it white and added a subtle pop of color on the back. It was a perfect fit.
The closet in that room holds the girls dresser. Yes, all their clothes fit in that one dresser. You would be surprised at how large and deep those drawers are, and I only keep the clothes they are currently wearing in the dresser. I took the mirrored doors off that closet a long time ago, and wanted to dress up that little niche in some way.
pelmet from Avery's big girl room and recovered it in a pink canvas, added a burnt orange pom pom trim and ribbon around the top. Looking for the easy way out (meaning I didn't want to put any unnecessary holes in my freshly painted walls!), I used a shower curtain tension rod, some ring clips, and hung up two tablecloths as curtains.
In each of the girls nurseries, I hung up their footprints that were taken right after birth. For this room, I just cut new matching mats using scrapbook paper and painted the frames white.

Check back later as I have a pretty fun post about how rooms evolve. It will show what this room used to look like 5 1/2 years ago when Franz and I were first married, and all the different rooms it's become since then.
