Hi, hope you are having a great Wednesday. It’s suppose to be warm here today, close to 60 degrees. Crazy for Upstate New York in January. Today I wanted to show you how the bedroom came together. I have spent the last couple of days at the sewing machine. I think my neck has finally forgiven me. I made four window panels from fabric that I ordered from Tonic Living.
I do not claim to really know how to sew. I improvised as I went. I also made the pillow shams on the bed from left over fabric from recovering the bench at the end of the bed. (You can see the before here) I used drop cloth fabric that I purchased at Home Depot.
Overall I like how the room came out. I was looking for a calm, neutral color palette. The only thing I might change is the pillow on the bed. After I chose the fabric and sewed the pillow cover I remembered some fabric I had seen a while back that I loved. I found a pillow cover on Etsy out of the “loved” fabric. This would bring the blue of the dresser over to the other side of the room, which I believe is lacking. I will have to ponder that for a day or two. If you have questions let me know. I did not do a tutorial on any of the projects because I was winging it as I went but if I can help, just ask. Also as a side note. I was pleased that I did not spend any money on this room. I used the proceeds from selling “stuff” on Craig’s list. Guilt free decorating, love it. Have a great day!
