I know that makes me sound like a total slob….I can hear my lovely bloggerooni buddies all saying”euuuuu! SUZE! What a PIG!”……..and you would be only half right.
In my defense…before I could actually “make up the bed” I had to MAKE the bed!
remember this closet?
Yea…THAT one……….well, today..being the intrepid scrounger that I am, I got a bunch of cinderblocks and made a 16 inch base…….I bought a 4×8 3/4″ plywood and ripped that sucker right down the middle into 2 2×8’s…….then I cut out the corners on one and added it to the “bed”.
I then painted the 2×8 with some leftover primer/sealer called KILZ……….nearly kilzed myself several times from the fumes!
I stapled on a half of a bed skirt that I had been “saving” for some reason for the past four years……threw a mattress on top and covered it with a jersey sheet….threw on a few throw pillows that didn’t coordinate with anything else in the house, moved my pictures that were PAINTED BY ROSE ELAINE!
George woke up right about then, wandered into the room and said something rude in German……….I don’t know why as I hadn’t asked him to do anything!
OH! OH! Remember this lamp?
Well I ripped off that pyramidical thing on the top and then ripped off the tacky beads…….I turned it upside down and put on some PRETTY braid with beads…..
.added some gold chains, and whoop-de-doo! I have a hanging lamp!
I still have to add two gold wire shelf units on one side of the “bed”………..but other than that it is done!
Well not really. I have five pillows to make that all coordinate..but I can’t do that until I finish my craft center, sewing center and move the television and two reclyners…which I can’t move until I get the futon back over to Angie’s house (we were borrowing it). There’s always a wrinkle ………..
I just realized I didn’t put in a picture of the finished bed…or at least mostly finished bed……..here it is!
