Ava was born with a rare neurogenetic condition called Angelman Syndrome. As part of AS, she suffers from a sleep disorder, seizures, and has many special needs. Her room was designed to be both beautiful and safe, and be functional for caring for a disabled sweetheart! My dad (her Pop) built the bed from an origional design that he and I came up with, and my mom and I painted it to match the rest of her furniture. The dresser was a cheap craigslist find that I repainted, using a design pulled from her bedding.
I really wanted a bright, fun, happy place for my sweet girl, but also one that wasn't too "little girlish" and would grow with her for several years. I found a photo of a built-in bed on Pinterest, and saw the bedding in a friend's home. The design took life from there...
For this room, bright and happy!
The bed was designed and built by my incredible father. It is still needing the crown molding, but is otherwise complete! The dresser was bought off of craigslist, and then I repainted it to match the bedding. I bought a peg board at Home Depot, and hung it above the changing area/dresser as a storage solution. The bedding is from Bed Bath & Beyond, and the tent is from Target.
By far, the bed! Not only was it designed and built by my dad, but we installed a seizure monitor on it so if she has a major seizure event at night, we are alerted. Everything about it is designed to keep her safe!
