Toddler room idea – bear shelf and stool

Make this simple bear shelf and bear chair and create a sweet reading nook for the toddler in your life.

I don’t have a toddler (sniff, sniff) but I do have a friend with a new baby which was excuse enough to create a couple of little decor pieces for his bedroom.

Teen Bathroom

I gave my daughter a limited budget and the parameter that she had to do most of the work herself and this is what she came up with for her teen bathroom.
