I thought about going online and purchasing a ballet barre. Hubs had the genius idea to use a nice piece of hand rail like the one on our staircase. He also used hand rail brackets to secure it in place, and we saved ourselves some big bucks! We are thinking of using the spare $ to have a custom piece of mirror cut out to cover the entire wall where the barre is mounted. Amanda Lily loves that she can now work on her ballet at home.
