So, here's where we're at right now. The pictures aren't great...but the room is very dark, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to shoot it with the mix of natural light from the window & artificial light from the ceiling. You'll just have to deal with it while I cringe over here. Ha.
The whole thing began with some pallets that I snagged from my mom's work. I had no clue where I was going with it, but I knew I wanted to build a headboard. In one night. This is what I came up with & these are the only two pictures I have.
Ignore the garage door in the background...this was while we were in the process of stripping & sanding it...I'll post pictures of it before & after once it quits raining around here. :)
Then, I whitewashed the yellow-y wood & mom & I hauled it downstairs & attached it to the bed frame.
Trimmed out the windows & hung bamboo blinds.
Created some wall art & temporarily hung it with washi tape.
And voila! A semi-finished place for our guests to rest their heads! When I get some free time to do some tweaking, I'll post pictures of the other side of the room (dresser, mirror, etc.). I also need to get a new lamp for that side table...& get rid of that old Ikea one...it just doesn't work in the space.
Not too bad for starting out like this a few days earlier...right?
