I found the diy instructions here.
With the help of my father-in-law and husband (not really, they did almost all of the work), we have completed my daughters new bed. Her room is still far from completion but she is no longer sleeping on a mattress on the floor so, I can feel like a decent mom for the time being. The project took a bit longer than I anticipated but, was still completed in a weekend. I think it looks fantastic and really makes her room look special.
As stated in my post "New House, New Decor", We plan on painting her room a light purple (almost white) and I intend to make her a unicorn head for the wall along with a bunch of paper flowers. But, those things are going to have to wait for now. I've got about a month and a half before the new baby arrives and still have to work on her 6th birthday, celebrate my own birthday (it's the day after hers) and wrangle together our Halloween costumes. (We're going as Aladdin characters btw! More info on that in a later post.) So, I'm a bit busy. But, Her room looks plenty cute enough for now and she absolutely loves it!
