It feels so good to make the bed with crisp new sheets, add the throw pillows, and stand back to see my weeks of hard work turn into a fresh new space. Adding a bit of Metrie trim work and paint from Voice of Color turned my nightmare furniture into a dream!
The hand painted wood sign I made is the first thing you notice when you walk into the room.
This Eric Clapton number was our wedding song, it seemed so fitting to incorporate it into a space just for us.
I sewed the throw pillows myself, adding contrasting piping to give it a little extra pop. The yellow and aqua fabric set the tone for the whole space, so bright and happy!
At the foot of the bed I made this small upholstered bench, tutorial to follow. I used indoor/ outdoor Sunbrella fabric so if I choose to move it to another area it should withstand heavier traffic. It needed a little extra height, the knobs from the pine dresser worked perfect!
Since moving in I wanted a full length mirror, enough standing on the edge of the bathtub to see my outfit. don’t order a sheet of mirror over the phone without actually measuring or building the frame first, it might just wind up to be gargantuan. This thrift shop rescue chair in Forsythia Blossom yellow is the perfect pop of color.
