Here's the little table I started with,
lots of damage to the top...
A can of spray paint, the legs are blue!
Another can of paint, the top is white! Doesn't look like it,
but the framed picture of Kipp and Andrew is painted
with the same blue as the table base.
Notice the pineneedle basket...yep, I'm still making
them...the flowers are coffee filter flowers...yep, found the
tutorial on Pinterest
I couldn't find a linen duvet cover I liked or in the right
shade of blue...so I made it myself. I ordered yards and
yards of linen online...and sewed and sewed. Quite easy, toughest
part is wrestling the weight of all that fabric as you sew
really long side seams.
This Dash and Albert rug is leftover from Ryan's makeover,
he "generously" sold it to me
I sewed some shams with leftover linen, made the
anchor fabric with Inkodye, silkscreened the stars
on some khaki linen...
I painted the painting of the Laguna Beach lifeguard
tower...added a small oil of a Salt Creek lifeguard tower
to the left of the door...
And...that's the project so far. One of Kipp's lifeguard
photos (she did a series) is framed and hanging
to the right of the bed. I'm not finished yet,
but the room is coming together and much cheerier
than is used to be.
