If you are in regular contact with children, whether they are your own offspring, nieces, nephews, the neighbor children you occasionally babysit, or your preschool students, you know that being an adult in a child’s life makes you an honorary tent builder. And while as a home improver and a budding DIYer you may walk around your dilapidated property wearing a tool belt featuring only the best your hardware store has to offer, this particular building project requires more creativity than labor.
But isn’t that the heart of any DIY matter? Letting the creative juices ebb fluidly into your baby, your project?

Constructing these glorious edifices from mismatched quilts, fitted sheets and pillows you open the tangible doors for a child’s mysterious imagination. Until one day they are sophisticated and structured into a four-poster canopy complete with layers of frill, lace, pink and some more pink.
That may evoke happy pleasant memories of our own childhood, and with some fairy dust and hard work we can bring back those memories into real time. Thanks to interior design maturing right along with us, there are several options to choose when it comes to decorating above head.
