A Favorite Nightstand Gets a Girly Twist

diy nightstand for a girls room

After building her daughter a beautiful panel bed fit for a princess, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic built two matching nightstands that are every bit as lovely! Whitney loved the design of a nightstand she’d previously built for her son’s room and teamed up with Ana White to put a “girly” spin on the plans. There is no question in my mind why Whitney adores this design so much – hidden storage! Plus, it sure sweetens the deal that they only cost $60 each to build!

As soon as Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo had a daughter she knew she wanted her to have a dollhouse. She loved the versatility of a bookshelf/dollhouse since her daughter may not want to play with dolls forever but would, of course, always have toys and books in need of storage. Amanda was able to create her own from a secondhand wooden dollhouse in need of a little love. With a fresh coat of paint, it’s the perfect little home for her daughter’s dolls or books and other toys!

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic wanted to build a girly bed for her daughter and found just what she was looking for in Ana White’s tall panel headboard. Ana whipped up plans for a twin version with a footboard and side rails that are nice and high to provide plenty of storage space underneath. All that beautiful molding reminds me of a throne!

And that she did! Mary Kathryn cut all the little flower shapes from poster board, curled the petals, and then attached them to the wall with putty. They look lovely in her daughter’s nursery and add the perfect touch of whimsy.

When Charlene from My Frugal Adventures saw a large, eye catching glitter letter from Pottery Barn Kids, she knew it would thrill her glitter-loving daughter and be a fairly simple way to decorate the space above her dresser. Charlene loved that the finish was “delicate and pretty” and not too flashy. Equipped with Martha Stewart’s liquid gilding and a fine glitter, Charlene made her own letter that has “just the right amount of sparkle” for a mere $6!
