My little sister is at the tween stage. She is 12 years old and before we know it she will have hit the teenage stage. We all need our own space, for us, that is very hard with so much us living in a three bedroom apartment. My mission is to come up with way to make our own space feel like ours.
Since my little sister has been diagnose with having extreme axienty and she also gets daily panic attacks, it is nessary for her to have a space of her own even if it is small and even if she says a bedroom with my little brother and my littler sister. I decided to create a tent/ nook area in their shared bedroom for when she doesn't want to climb up onto her pretty awesome bunk bed. She can still have time to herself and since she creates tents all around our apartments I thought this would be a great suprise for her.
This area didn't cost too much and it did not take to long to create. I bought this rather large bracket from Canadian Tire for less that $3.00.
It did not come with any screws so I had to use my own then I drilled it to the wall.
Next, I used the white LILL lace curtains that I bought from IKEA for $4.99. I orginally bought it for my bedroom, but I did not like it at all (guess I am not a lace person). It wasn't what I invisioned so I kept it for something else. It just so happend to look fantastic for this project. Simply slide both curtians on.
At Dollaram I found these self adhensive flowers. They wouldn't stay on their own so I glued it onto a nail and repeated all around. The nail keeps the flower in the hole at the end of the bracket.
Also, since the kids will be in the room and I am sure there will be a moving this around, the curtain wont be able to slide off the bracket because of the nail holding the flower. I love that you cant even tell that it's there.
Now it is time to work on the bottom.
Found awesome huge purple fluffy pillows over at Walmart for around $12.00 and bought two. I thought I would need tons of pillows, but two would out nicely.
All that is left is to sit back and relax!
