We saved money with sweat equity, the wall unit was a collaboration between teen and both parents. Darling daughter learned some valuable skills along the way such as sanding, using a drill and driving a screw. Daughter and daddy spending quality time, priceless!
She was eager to get this project underway and there was no eye-rolling on this project.
She poured over the IKEA catalogue for MONTHS, dreaming of her finished masterpiece. IKEA, the venerable cheap way to decorate, but with Swedish style, both country and contemporary. The white boxes were cheap at IKEA and a way for her to hide a million doo-dads that have some significant meaning even if they never see the light of day again. The photo frame to the left of her desk on the wall is adorable and she can change out the pics at will. right now she filled them with endangered animal pics she downloaded from the internet.
One of her 3 murals is still a work-in-progress.
We switched the sleigh bed for the captains bed so we can get rid of her dresser. Two of her throw pillows and the blanket are from IKEA.
