One Dresser, Four Ways

A few months ago, I showed you the new Sauder dresser I ordered online. Above is what it looks like on the Sauder website, not what it looks like at the Ziegmont home.

We put her beloved race car bed into storage and hauled out her crib to convert into a toddler day bed. Never having used them as a baby, Grace thought the bumpers that came with her bedding were just so cool. She insisted they be tied onto the sides and back of her day bed. In a moment of temporary brilliance, I tied the remaining bumper on to act as a soft bed rail. It’s not terribly sturdy, but … Read more
