I had planned to post a picture and tutorial of a cute apron, but my camera battery died and I have no time to charge it and get a picture of the apron before my two little ones wake up from their nap, so instead I'll share a quick project I did this past weekend.
Anna Cate destroyed the first headboard I made for her room several weeks ago during her nap time. You know, the one I made from foam board? I had to strip her room of all of toys because she plays with them when she is supposed to be napping. Because she couldn't find a toy or book to play with, this particular afternoon she decided to see what else she could occupy her time with and decided on her headboard. When I went to get her up from her nap, it was bent over in half. So much for that idea.
This past Friday afternoon I found this headboard at His House for $10. I brought it home and with just a little sandpaper and two cans of white satin spray paint, she now has a new headboard. I actually like this one 100 times better and it was a fraction of the cost! Now I'm on a hunt for a bedside table...
Lesson learned: Never make an upholstered headboard for a toddler's bedroom!
