Another “snow day” has allowed me to continue working on my outdated, dark and not-so-large bedroom. While doing so, I don’t want to break the bank. It’s challenging but it is progressing.
Creative storage will include lidded baskets to hide all of that extraneous crap in our room, a DIY floordrobe wall hanger and possibly an over-the-door shelf. I know I can scrounge up a basket or two from around the house. I have scrap lumber and door knobs or hooks. I do like these and plan to sew similar pillowcases. One night stand completed; one left to build.
I’ve wanted a cotton matelassé and a patchwork quilt for ages. I found a vintage Queen Elizabeth matelassé at the Smithfield Antique Fair last weekend for a reasonable price. I m so stoked! So much that I *think* I can sew that quilt myself. Maybe. 😉
My inspiration is a variety of, yet similar “casual beach cottage farmhouse” styles.
I still have a lot to do – just have to find the time. I really like checking items off my list:
remove valances, patch nail holes, repair or replace wall sconces, matelassé, quilt, pillowcases, storage baskets, paint walls, wardrobe, floordrobe wall hanger . . . the list goes on. Slowly, but surely!
Have a good week! – – Joanne
