She spent almost three months redesigning the bedroom of her 3-year-old daughter, Lou.

She used a handmade chandelier, shelves with crown molding and her childhood trundle bed to recreate the space.

She said the redesign cost $1,344. “I always try to get a bargain,” Salmon says.

During a six-week period in August and September, The Post invited readers to submit photos of their children’s smartly designed bedrooms. View Lou’s room and the other submissions at
