i am terrible about starting a series and not finishing it.
huh, now that i think of it… i’m terrible about starting anything and finishing it! ha!
before i forget to finish my thought, i’m talking specifically about my plan to finish our master bedroom. if you want to catch up from forever ago,here’s part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5. this will probably be a 37 part series. you think i’m kidding.
since i have been at a stand still on deciding what to do with my pillows (also known as “i’m slammed with work and can’t find the time to sew for myself”), i decided to start with adding something to my walls. in our room we have only hung one frame on the walls. its been over 4 years. so i sean hung a pin board that was given to us by some friends. i’ve know for awhile that i wanted to hang my jewelry from it because it was getting so jumbled hanging from hooks in my closet. besides, i have some really pretty pieces that i’d love to see more, like my allora handmade necklace and my collection of new and “vintage” lisa leonard designs.
my vision for this wall is to have lots of random frames in all sorts of colors, some filled some left empty. the mustard one i want to hang all of the photo booth pics i have of sean and i since we were kids (18 is a kid, right?), like i saw here (scroll down, above the dresser). and i know i have an oval mirror somewhere around here, i think under the house. sean already searched for it and came up empty handed, but i can’t imagine that i ever got rid of it. i’ll kick myself if i did, for sure!
and the big pic in the middle of sean dipping me at our wedding, i want to change out the black mat and cover it in a funky fabric.
this little seahorse was my only personal purchase i made at the queen bee market. i showed some serious restraint there, but this little guy was just so quirky and perfect.
and i love the little pops of color my bowl o’ posies gives. i do think i should have more posies and petal pushers than that, though… i know just where to get them… they sit in fornt of the teddy bear that was made from my gramps’ shirt after he passed away years ago – a true treasure – both the man and the bear.
and here’s a shot of the rest of the room. still the same. i think i want some sort of thrifted/vintage letters on each side of the window pane above our bed – “s” and “l”.
this pile of fabric is taunting me to finish my pillow project. i want to cover the euro shams in the back with a couple prints and then maybe a couple throw pillows. since i know you’ll ask: the fabric is almost all from arcadia by moda. good luck finding any – its all out of print and scarce. i snagged what i could when i could months ago.
i bought this round table cloth months ago without any reason other than it was beautiful. i NEED to work it into this room. i want to figure out a way to make it into a thrown for the end of the bed or something.
so that’s it! i am reeeeeally hoping to get some pillows made this week, or more added to the wall. do you think i can do it? me neither. ;)
