You can see the initial plan in this post, toddler bump bed included. To recap with just the image and sources:

I absolutely fell in love with the bed we bought her when I saw it, and am reworking the room a little bit around the bed. Since the bed is twin sized, I have a round white ottoman I am putting at the foot of the bed. I can still do the canopy around it. I do have to come up with a solution for books. Maybe a small basket next to the ottoman or under her nightstand. She doesn't need a lot of books in her big girl room just a few to read each night, the family room and nursery both have wall to wall bookshelves with lots of room for the books.

Well, I need a bed skirt for my daughter's bed and I've been looking online and white pretty ones aren't cheap. Even a simple white twin bed skirt with no frills is about $20-$30. So, I decided to make one, something simple nothing fancy. Well, when I was trying to find a white bed sheet to use for a bed skirt and to cover some kids chair seats, I found these all folded up and tucked away. Perfect! I ironed and and ironed and ironed some more, they were terribly wrinkled. And they are a perfect fit for her bed! It really was fate. There are two shelf liners and they are the perfect size lengthwise for the length of the bed, and folded in half they perfectly fit the end of the bed. I do need to adjust the length a tiny bit on the end, a bit of tucking and pulling will fix it. All in all though, I think it turned out perfectly!
