Hello! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July last week. We didn’t do anything special for the holiday, but I do have something special to share with you today. We have been working on our upholstered beds for a few weeks, completing a little at a time. I still have a few things left to do with the bed, but most of the headboard is done. Here’s a quick peek.
I rushed over to the Goodwill this morning to buy a stack of books and teacups to decorate the desk. I actually wanted ceramic bowls instead of teacups, but I couldn’t find any. Hopefully, on my way home I can find some at another location. I may need to replace them anyway, if Breeze is a bad boy while we are away and knocks them over.
The gray headboard is upholstered in white twill tape and nickel upholstery nailheads. Putting the nailheads on took longer than I expected! It took us most of Saturday to finish up the entire headboard! I’m happy to say that I still have my fingers, although the headboard did get dropped on my ankle, but the swelling has now subsided! I’ve always been very prone to accidents.
My to-do list is shrinking week by week. I still have to sew the gray and white striped fabric from my stash into pillow shams, it’s just draped over the pillow for now. I think I may prefer the chair pictured above over the other one below. It needs a little work, especially on the seat and I think I like the less ornate look, the cane makes it appear too busy.
I’m on the search for a nice throw and maybe some fabric for my euro pillows, I still haven’t decided if I want to use them yet.
