So my Nia loves these shelves in my bedroom...
no, I still have not painted them, smh
She stays in my jewelry, and she literally sits in front of them drooling to touch everything on it, lol. This is actually an old photo of it. It has lots more goodies on it now...you know, all those awesome things a vanity holds : ) So I figured I'd try to make her something similar, but on a smaller scale and much more 'Nia friendly'. So I bought a $22 bookshelf from Target, and this is what happened...
She totally stole my bag and stuffed her doll in it, lol. She drags it around the house so I guess it's actually her bag now, smh. I put clear sticky hooks on the side to hold her little purses. The large apothecary jar is from our wedding, and the smaller ones for bows & pacifiers are thrifted.
I got these baskets from Hobby Lobby AND they were half off : )
Everything else I had on hand!!! She also loves this picture of me & Kevin. It matched her decor so I threw that on there too. She plays with her blocks everyday, so they were a must!
She loves walking around the house in her tutu's, so I thought...why not have them on display?! I mean, they are really cute! I just screwed hooks under the top shelf and used plastic skirt hangers to hang them on. The hooks are soft so I don't have to worry about her hurting her hands. She really loves that she can reach them now.
She loves it, and I couldn't be happier!
Have a Fantastic Friday!

1. Foam letters from Hobby Lobby @ 40% off!!! They give it a '3D' effect
2. 1 sheet of card stock (I had some on hand)
3. Place the letters however you want them. Mine aren't all that straight, but Mason didn't notice, lol
4. $3 frame from Walmart...I did not use the glass! Mason likes that he can actually feel the letters.
I put it on his little entertainment center. It's perfect! And he loves 'teaching' them to me everyday, lol
And guess what else I found at Walmart?!?!?!
These decals! I love them! They were on clearance for like $5, so I got two. I ditched the 'athlete in training' decals that came with it and went to Hobby Lobby and got these paper mache letters. They were 30% off too!!! I thought about painting them, then realized they're perfect for his room just the way they are. I'll be sure to share the rest of his room very soon...as in when I get around to actually taking the pictures : )
