While decorating my girls room, I came up with a thrifty tip for a headboard and it fits right in with my shabby chic theme! I spent a total of $14.00 for the fence which was already pre-made at the local lumber store.

I drew the plans for this bed and my husband made it from 2x4's and cheap plywood. It only cost about $50 total for the wood and paint. There is plenty of storage underneath for our son's toys. I used masking tape to markoff the bricks/stones and sponged on black and white paint to make the stones look more real. The paint on the wall is done to give the appearance of the castle being more closed in. We also put Velcro around the top bed frame and our son can attach some cheap fabric I found for $1.00 a yard, to close in the castle for tent-like privacy.
He absolutely loves this bed.
BTW...my husband is no carpenter and says the bed is "rough" but our son loves it!
Simple, timeless children's toys maintain a timeless appeal. The old Slinky now comes in a variety of colors and still entertains children. Hanging an image like this of a childhood favorite adds vibrancy to the child's room.

I want to redecorate my 5 year old daughter's room with a dance theme. She takes tap and jazz, but not ballet yet. I am looking for decor ideas that can incorporate the various styles of dance, not just ballet. Any suggestions?
