It's amazing how much we can get done when Jason doesn't have work and I'm not passing a kidney stone! Eliza kept smacking herself on her iron scroll daybed, and her blackout roller shade fell down. We were not sleeping, so we had to do something.
We bought Laura a queen mattress set that she can take with her when she leaves the house. (Amazing deal and great mattress HERE) Eliza got Laura's old full/double set. However, poor Eliza didn't have anything to go with her new bed.
So, we bought a quilt at Kohls - we had a 30% off coupon. Then we found coordinating fabric and built her a headboard but we did it more cheaply with inexpensive foam and more easily by doing just a simple rectangle. Building the headboard and buying the quilt set also enabled us to infuse the room with pink (her favorite color) without having to paint like we did for Sara. (Stupid latex allergy, and I still love having my youngest in a "great green room") With my parents help, and not counting shopping time, the whole project cost around $60 and 2 hours of work. Eliza says it is pretty and comfy!!
