Our bedroom was starting to look a bit dated and I was over the dark wood.
It was time for a makeover. This picture which I had cut out of a magazine was my inspiration. Of course, my finished room looks nothing like this, but inspiration has to come from somewhere.
The first to receive the treatment was the bedhead.
I got out a girl's best friend, her staplegun, and a plentiful supply of wadding was stapled to the headboard.
This was then covered with a piece of soft creamy coloured striped fabric.
Then I painted the bedside tables and I couldn't believe the difference. Those ugly tables suddenly had a fresh modern look and my new Persephone book was a perfect colour match.
The cross stitch pictures above the bed were replaced with small canvases covered with fabric
et voila a new fresh look.
Help, I can feel a new list coming on. I have just seen this picture and I am inspired to make an ottoman for the living room.
Don't hold your breath.
