Anyway. Enough excuses. I did the best I could, and the room is much better than it was before, but for now I look at it as a good design foundation: the basics are there, but some of them need a little jazzing up and a little accessorizing. Linda assures me that it's OK to take more than six weeks, so I'll continue on from here. Not right away, unfortunately; I need to focus on getting my house selling to do list done. I'll get back to the bedroom over time, but for now I have my hands full fighting to keep the laundry mountain to five loads and the dishes from piling up to the ceiling.
I did accomplish a few things, though, so shall we take a peek?
Bolster made from a body pillow I cut down (width-wise) by three or four inches.
Throw pillows. My favorite part of the pink pillow is the blue flat welt, which you can kind of see here.
I still need to paint the edges on this, but I'm calling it done anyway.
Sorry about the lighting; it was kind of gray out Tuesday and I didn't get an opportunity to take pictures until almost 5.
There we are. I could list off the things I still have to do, but I won't. It's mostly sewing and cleaning, same old same old. Now that you've slogged through this, you should go to Linda's site and check out the reveals from the official participants.
