When her brother requested a toy box for his kiddos, Ayisha at The Pursuit of Handyness headed straight to Ana White for plans. Ayisha modified the dimensions to fit her brother’s designated space, drew out her cut list, and headed to a local lumber yard to score all her wood for only $29. Ayisha knew the toy box was a big hit when her little niece and nephew immediately climbed inside {Giggle}!

Jenn of A Jennuine Life had been planning to make her daughter a sleeping bag for Christmas. When her daughter went gaga for a Sherpa sleeping bag in the PB Kids catalog, the project got pushed to the top of Jenn’s to-do list. Jenn totally outdid herself with this snuggly Hello Kitty bag that features a plush Kitty face and fleece lining. I am amazed by Jenn’s work! I just might start sleeping on the floor if I had a sleeping bag like this one!

The wax paper is perfect for achieving a light, airy feel and giving the appearance of fluttering butterfly wings. What a great way to lend a magical note to a little girl’s room!

Storage Bookcases

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic added a set of bookcases to the list of furniture items she has constructed for her daughters’ shared bedroom. Whitney followed plans by Ana White but built on the functionality by creating a cubby storage space on the bottom. The simple addition of the boards will keep toys contained on the shelves and is cheaper and easier than hunting down baskets that fit perfectly.
