Stripe Top Benches (Boy and Girl Shared Bedroom)

Today I'm sharing how I built these cute little benches for my kid's bedroom.  Of course they came from an easy to follow Ana-White plan.

Shared Bedroom-Boy and Girl (Building)

My two youngest kids are sharing a room.  I've been hard at work on some projects to make it go together for a boy and a girl but still be personalized.  The first big project was matching headboards.  The headboards are from the Ana White Reclaimed Wood Headboard plan.  

I stained both headboards with two coats of Minwax Walnut (using wood conditioner before) followed by 5 coats of polycrylic.

Doll Barn {Building}


I'm SO excited to show you today's project!  One of my favorite things to do as a little girl was visit my Grandma's house.  My Grandma is super creative and would spend hours with me making doll houses out of cardboard, fabric and her glue gun.  So making a doll barn made me totally nostalgic and excited to spend time with my little girl playing with dolls.  My daughter is four and loves to play with dolls but she really loves playing with the doll horses so I thought it would be fun to build her a house that her horses and dolls could live together.
