Lisa from All Things Campbell had a design in mind when it was time to move her daughter to a toddler bed… she carefully sketched out her idea, and was able to complete the project in under two days. With the help of her brother-in-law’s sawing skills and her own sewing (and stapling) prowess, Lisa transformed the bare wooden bones to something a bit more magical.
