While searching on pinterest, I came across the idea of a playhouse canopy like this:
I even found a few tutorials:
So I put it on my TO DO list and figured it was the perfect idea for SubfertileFrugalista's Pinterest challenge.
Yesterday Hannah & I attended a consignment event with Jessica & Ethan and while shopping between the toy and book sections, I found this round gauzy THING shoved under the table. It was wrapped up pretty tight, but appeared to be a bed canopy. It only cost $3 so I took a chance.
After some investigation online, I discovered that it is IKEA's Fabler bed canopy and retails for $20.
This afternoon, I gathered up the canopy, Hannah's stuffed animal collection, a wicker-ish laundry basket I bought at Goodwill ($3) months ago, a cushion I made for the dogs that was never actually USED by the dogs, and some blankets. The resulting transformation:
Isn't is CUTE?!?!
Here's Hannah's reaction:
I think we have a winner, folks.
