Here’s how this particular episode of crazy began…..recall my post about our “New-ish” Night stands necessitating “New-ish” dressers? Leading to round the clock surveillance of Kijiji to find the perfect pieces?
Well, we brought the new dressers home Tuesday – it is possible that they are the heaviest dressers ever made in the history of ever.
This is just a peek:
And in their new incarnation, they will hopefully have a finish that looks something like this:
And then the inevitable happened, and this time it wasn’t even my fault (mostly), it was the Misters. Remember the Decorating Domino Effect in the Family Room? <Sigh>
It’s quite lovely, really.
A soft gray suede, tufted & trimmed with chrome nail heads. (yes, the pic is only half of it, because the bed isn’t made, and no, I did not have time, please keep reading for more on that).
There’s a million tutorials online for making an upholstered headboard, I promise you this is a relatively easy and totally do-able project. We did this one in a day.
Which is good, because now we’re re-doing it. Of course.
Mister decided he liked this vibe & fabric/color combination:
I have always prided myself on my mad skillz with fusible tape or a glue gun; but this fabric was ridiculously expensive, and I decided maybe I needed to step up my game.
I’ll admit, I’m extremely intimidated by this machine & it’s 42 stitch functions - seems to me it’s just showing off a bit, and I have an irrational fear of bobbins. I welcome any assistance, tips or tricks at all from you sewer people.
So that I can have this:
Supplies required to execute? Check.
Time to do any of it? Negatory.
Just this past week I’ve worked with 5 Homeowners to help them prepare their homes to market, and created design plans with 2 more clients for renovated / re-designed spaces in their homes. Which have been awesome and have I ever told you how I meet the best people doing what I do?
So, maybe next week I’ll have something actually completed that I can share, more than just my rambling thoughts, plans & design schizophrenia, which I hope you’ve enjoyed.
If you’re planning to re-decorate, re-design, or renovate,
contact me to help you create the extraordinary. ( I always have time for that!)
Fall in love with your home again.
