P said the other day that she wanted to make the space under the stairs a "queenly place" for queens, princesses, and fairies. I have helped her start the transformation.
We went through my bins of thrifted fabrics and linens and found a green toile tapestry of birds and leaves to hang on the wall and she chose a few other fancy items for decoration. We also draped a large piece of red and white damask fabric across the opening.
D installed some hooks for her to hang some "queenly things." and B fixed a lamp for light.
She says she will draw some queenly things to decorate the backs of the stairs.
M has fun getting in there and playing games with her.
