My son has a small bedroom. This raised bed from Ikea has been a wonderful space saver. The floor space below is used for toy storage. With the addition of some carefully hung blankets, the area underneath is also frequently turned into a fort. My only complaint about this bed is that Trent doesn't have anyplace to stash the types of items that would commonly go on a night stand. Any night stand I've seen is too short and besides, it would block the ladder. All he needed was a little shelf. When I saw this one on Pinterest, made from a wood magazine file, I knew that it would be a great solution for Trent's room. And it is. I attached it to the bed with a couple of screws- quick and easy.
I'm participating in Pinning it Down, a weekly link up,
Do you find yourself pinning projects to Pinterest, but rarely getting around to doing them? Do you need a bit of encouragement to make some of those projects come to life? Join Pam and Sarah every Tuesday for the Pinning it Down link-up, where we're making a Pinterest project happen in our homes every week.
And this little reading corner, in my daughter's room, is something else I'm excited to show you. I found the chair at the Goodwill this morning. My 12 y.o. daughter is on Pinterest. Sometimes I have mixed feelings about this, as some inappropriate pictures do occasionally pop up there, but for the most part, I really like it. I like having a window into what she's interested in. She has her own home inspiration boards. I knew as soon as I saw this chair, that she would love it, and she did. She likes mismatched, English inspired prints, and I thought this fit the bill quite nicely. The needle point foot stool is something that her great grandma made and the throw pillow is Liberty of London, from Target.
