We briefly considered making a railing for Brooklyn’s bed that looks like a picket fence. I had asked Brooklyn how she felt about that idea, and she liked it. Then we told her that we had to change our plan, and we installed this railing made from 2×2’s and dowels. Once we got it up, Brooklyn’s comment was, “What do you mean, it doesn’t look like a fence? It looks exactly like a fence!” I decided she was exactly right, and opted not to argue the point at all.
I had Brooklyn help me paint some squares on the wall. We thought it would give some interest to the room, and we used colors to match her quilt. Brooklyn had a lot of fun with the project. We also hung her curtains, and the valance I made several years ago, but never hung. So, I’m happy! There are still quite a few things to be done in here, but we are making progress. She is really enjoying the new room.
