There is a door behind this curtain that leads to the back of our tub. We lovingly call it our elf door. I’ve thought of painting it with chalkboard paint, magnetic paint, making it a cute little spot for her art, which all would have been lovely. Minus the chalkboard paint. I think more than half of these chalkboard paint projects have been conceived by someone who either doesn’t have a toddler, or doesn’t have much experience with toddlers and chalkboards…
But in a room with not so much room, we need to utilize every little square inch and this is where the bed works.
Here’s the elf door before it got a coat of primer (the paint never made it on).
Here it is with primer. Better, but it’s still there. Haha, I don’t want it there!
Using an oooold rod that I found in our basement, I jimmy rigged some 50 lb picture hanging hooks to be a bit more curved and fit the rod better. Nailed those near the ceiling, and took one of our curtains that are waiting to be hung in the dining room and hung it. I love the look!
Once we are ready to hang the curtains (umm, hopefully soon), I’ll hem and weight the bottom of the curtain to hang better. But for now, this works! I’m not hemming them until they’re in the right room, and it totally hides the elf door. 🙂
I like these Vitaminer Vimpals (lol) from IKEA.
and good news…
we could totally put another toddler bed in here and have plenty of room
Here’s the other side of the room, the crib still fits in here great although I probably need to replace my drop side crib now that they’ve been recalled. Sad face. This thing is 26 years old and STURDY. Not made with plastic, not likely to break. But it’s better to be safe I guess…
25 cents at a garage sale! They love
playing with this having me play with this for them.
Here’s the other side of the room, it’ll be more of a play area of some sort. My legs are still bum legs and things are still piling up. I’ve been folding some of their laundry and putting it away, but this is the summer stuff, stuff that doesn’t fit. I need to go through it and put it away.
Not the end of the world.
Ben can take down the pictures off the wall, they’re now on the shelf. Also note the floppy “d,” that was him too.
And because they love to say “cheese” and actually want me to take pictures, we took some pictures
Love our new elf door cover and wall curtain! It really helps to define the space.
