After nearly 10 months of just living in our house we have started to tackle a few design projects. Last weekend on a bit of a whim I convinced Eric that we should build and upholster our own bed frame. One week later we have completely finished the project! Over the next few days we will share our step-by-step instructions to make your very own upholstered bed for about $250.00!
Before we get into the meat of this project I thought I would share the fabric we picked out. We spent ages in the fabric store and we had a hell of a time agreeing on anything. After what seemed like hours I reluctantly convinced Eric what we should go with a big bold floral pattern. I can’t get enough of this fabric, it has a hint of honeysuckle as well as some blues and greens. Eric is a little worried that the pattern is too feminine but I think with the right accessories and wall colour we can create a stylish rooms that suits both our taste.
The next step in our bedroom will be to pick paint colours and to make a decision about night tables. I have not decided if we are going to refinish what we have or if we will try and get something new.
In the next couple of weeks we are also going to try and bring you a video tour of our house. I thought this tour would be really nice for all our friends and family in Edmonton who have not seen the house since we moved.
