Well, this little project is taking longer than expected. So far, the curtains are made as you can see. Yesterday I finished the final details on the duvet cover and am thrilled with the result. The stitches aren't perfectly straight, but overall, I am happy. What do you think about the bed? I sold the trundle bed on craigs and replaced it with one that Mom found. It was chippy and white when I got it and I gave it a coat of glossy black. This is my favorite bed in the house now. Lucky boy.
The curtains are made from a sheet that I found one day while picking up shipping supplies at Walmart. A king size sheet is perfect for two panels. I just cut it down the middle and sewed a three inch hem at the top for a rod pocket.
The duvet is made from 90" premium muslin from Joann's. A border of single ply bias tape in navy dressed that thing right up. I will share more as it is finished.
I finally tried my hand at the monogram project that I posted last week. If you are considering giving it a try, go for it. It was easy to do and took less than an hour.
If you follow on facebook, then you know that I recently won a giveaway from Lisa at the blog, Shine Your Light. (Thank you Lisa!) I am planning a little art gallery to the left of the bed and found just the piece to add to it.
This quote says it all, especially for a tween - and even for a hopeless diy-er ;)
