I know it might be silly, but this little headboard in all it’s budget-friendly glory is probably my favorite thing in my house right now. I mean, it’s striped for heaven’s sake. Anyway, let me explain what it started as. This is a $20 desk top from IKEA. It’s called the Linnmon and it comes in a few different colors. When we first bought it, I made this desk from it:
The desk served me well for about three years but we decided to make my office/craft room into more of an extended family room with toy storage because TOYS WERE EVERYWHERE, so I no longer had a place for the desk.

Just a couple weeks ago (the first weekend in July) we had a family reunion for my husband’s side. The crazy thing about it is that we pulled this thing together within three weeks of finding out that everyone would be in the place at the same time. This rarely happens, because we are all spread across the country – in Utah, Texas and Alabama. We live in Houston, and since everyone was traveling here I wanted to make sure that it would be a fun and memorable weekend for everyone.
My mother-in-law came here early so she and I planned most of it together. I have come up with a few tips and ideas that I’d like to share because while it may seem daunting to plan for a big group of people – it doesn’t have to be complicated.
