New Bed ... sort of ...

Aahh our bed. It's served us well over the many years that we've dragged it around Melbourne. It's had kids sleep, hide, jump and puke in it. It's been broken and repaired.
It's nearly time to move on.

I found THE replacement in a magazine of ridiculously expensive furniture (why was I looking at that ???). Unfortunately it was "only" a couple of thousand dollars out of our budget.
So, one trip to Spotlight and some discounted funishing fabric later, we have a compromise!

It looks like a new bed! (Unfortunately it doesn't feel like a new bed but hopefully it can hang together for a bit longer ...) No before photo - sorry, I'm not that organised - just imagine a late 90's baltic pine type thingy with an orange tinge. I think this is a better look.

PS I'm still loving that coushion from Louise. How beautiful is it!


  1. Wow - that's clever and gorgeous!! Glad you are still loving the cushion - must make myself one. I have just returned from a week away and the only thing I missed was my beautiful bed! Bliss!!!

  2. That looks great - I thought your photo was from the magazine bed you were wishing for!!! It really looks fantastic, especially with the lovely pillowcase and cute cushion.

  3. I love what youve done! How awesome does it look. Theres no way I thought that there was pine anywhere near this beauty. Very inspiring. I havent ever made curtains for our four poster but really must


Go on, leave a message. It will make my day!
