There are just a few easy steps
Step one: Buy cheap and ugly cushions from Kmart (on sale $2.50)
Step two: Take out the inserts and discard covers, cut in half if you need a smaller cushion
Step three: Get super talented Amy from Badskirt to make custom hippos to match decor
Step four: Get daughter to name said hippos. Blue is Charlie (girl) and black is Sarah
Step five: Get another super talented gal - Alicia from Stockholm Moose - to make a custom lamp.
Step six: Buy a fab bedside table at Bondi Markets to go with the new bed
Step seven: Show your daughter who is delighted but immediately re-arranges the pillows to the end of the bed and declares that she has made "a celebration!"
