I’m slowly getting to the point where my projects are going to get more difficult. This was the last project I am going to be able to do pretty much on my own. All the easy cosmetic changes are going to be done.
I don’t have a picture of what our room looked like before but it was a mix of brown and red. I wanted something new and different so this is what I came up with. I’m not quite done with it yet. Still need to find a few more things for the walls.
First of all, I wanted a headboard. We have never had a headboard. We had looked around some stores at some, but we decided just to make one. We got the idea from this site: http://blissfulbegonia.wordpress.com/2007/11/04/how-to-make-a-fabric-covered-headboard/ It was a pretty easy plan. My hubby put the wood pieces together and I helped attach the batting and fabric. Here is our finished product. And we are very PROUD of it. As long as it stays in one piece!
I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. Thanks to my hubby for making it happen!
Here are some more shots of the room:
I made the two side pieces with left over fabric from the head board.
This cute little thing is going to go on a shelf once I find one. It says, “Laugh”.
The frames above the bed are ones I have stored for awhile. So, I put different coordinating scrapbook paper in them and arranged them above the bed.
Cute little vase. A friend and I went out today and looked around. We found these flowery things and needed something for it. So we went to Michaels. I found the vase and went to pay for it. I of course had a coupon and was ready to use it. The cashier was like, “you don’t need a coupon. It’s one cent.” Really? Yes, really!!! Apparently it was on clearance and needed to be gone. And she was dead serious. So, I got a $24.99 vase for a PENNY! She said I should go buy a lottery ticket!
Jewelry holder. Because I have so much jewelry. Haha!
And curtains. I’m still thinking of finding some fabric to drape across the top that would go with the bed. But we’ll see. Kind of like it as it is.
The room is so much lighter. I love it! Just need a few more decorations!
One a side note:
Here is a craft I finished for Josie’s room:
Cute little shelves that look like swings!
Now, for the next project. Think it’s time to tackle the bathrooms!
