So white walls it was. And a neutral, but fun carpet. *gulp*
A few days later and some trial fabrics and I LOVE the results. The bed looks awesome. And I sent a picture to a 12 year old to make sure it wasn't just me poofing my own feathers. She thought it was great!
All these fabrics, except the woven one, are credited to my Mom. She picked them up some time ago for a project with my dad, but it ended up falling through, so they were passed on to me! I love the color combination here!!!
Then, since I was on a roll, I worked on the room for the bed, too. Finally glued in the ceiling paper and the string light. I left a little bit of a gap all the way around to remind me that I want to put crown molding in all the rooms. Fancy house!
I also made one of the other things I wanted to have in this room. A circular canopy!!! WOOT!
And what a pain in the rear. It wasn't hard to make, but the hanging mechanism had me swearing up a storm and threatening to burn things down. LOL. But I got it up there!
The desk is tripling as a dresser, desk and vanity. And this won't be the only pop of black either. I am currently looking for some white on black polka dot fabric to make a bench at the foot of the bed.
