About This Project

3/4 inch Cabinet Grade Plywood and 1x2's and 1x3's

I promised my daughter that I would build her a new room for her birthday (in February). I finally got around to it in late March and I couldn't be more excited! She picked out the paint color (blue) for her room. And I got to work! Every time I go in her room I smile and feel so incredibly accomplished!

I did the whole project myself! The only exception was carrying it up to her room. I overcame my fear of the circular saw which was awesome.

The only problem was my oldest took one look at the room, fell to the ground in tears and wanted to know why her little sister had a "better" room than she did. And where her bed was! So I told her we'd get her a desk - she looked at me and said "No Mommy - I want you to build it!" I love that!
