Okay so I said I wasn’t going to get all crafty on here, but I am. Noah is always wanting me to build forts. I would have begged my parents to help me, but fortunately I had a younger brother to boss around.
At our old house everything was closer together so it was easier to throw sheets over random pieces of furniture. Now that we have moved to a larger place, which I am DEFINITELY not complaining about, there just hasn’t been much “fort time” since we moved. So I decided to build one. Not going to lie, little disappointed that this didn’t turn out anything like the whimsical looking fort in the photo I was trying to recreate.
Today consisted of two trips to Lowe’s, a lot of cursing under my breath, cursing at the blogger whose instructions I was trying to follow (she left out some very important information such as “pieces” and directions), but HEY we are all human. After all that I finally got the “fort” assembled. So if you have a little one that needs his or her own “space” or frequently requests you build a “fort” then you are capable of making this! Tomorrow I will post instructions for the fort, and hopefully if anyone reads this and decides to build one they won’t be cursing me under their breath 🙂
Oh and BEST PART is this whole deal costs only $22. I used some sheets I had lying around, and maybe one day soon will splurge on some fancy fort sheets for that whimsical look I was going for.
