My Annelise and I are in the process of turning her walk-in closet into a dressing room! We have great plans for this space, including a decorative chandelier from Lowes ($44 steal) and shabby chic vanity (free-thanks to Jules!!!). I can't wait to finish!!!
I found a great idea for disguising those ugly closet bars on http://www.centsationalgirl.com/2009/04/girls-closet-all-dressed-up.html.
This project started with centsational girl's idea and a crib bumper. Like many first time mom's, I paid way too much for my daughter's crib bedding. I looked high and low for the perfect set and the $600 price tag was the least of my worries! Funny how I spent way more on this than my own bedding. It got very little use because I did not want her to spit up on this bedding.
I kept the quilt in her room as it matches her lamps but I had no idea what to do with the bumper. I tried selling it on craigslist.org but got no takers. So rather than putting this expensive piece in a yard sale for $5, I re purposed it.
While watching hgtv yesterday afternoon, I used a stitch remover (or whatever the technical term is) to successfully salvage the ruffle. I had no idea if it would fit the rods. I was hopeful the ruffle would fit and with luck, it fit perfectly.
