Good morning everyone !
This last little guest room feels like it's taking longer then the entire kitchen to do !
But at least the beginnings of a bed nook is well on it's way.
Remember I showed you the duvet cover I was going to use in this room ?
What I didn't tell you was that it would be used as a " curtain " to create the " nook "
Since I didn't want to destroy the duvet in any way, I simply took the open end, folding it once and placed hook rings to hang from the rod.
It's important to use the open end of the duvet for the top for 2 reasons -
1) It allows you to have a little substance on the top
2) It allows for perfect " puddling " at the bottom
We hung a rod across the room using simple hardware you'd use to hang a pole in a closet
( I spray painted it of course lol )
I think it cost 2.00 or so - you can get metal ones but this one works fine since it's only holding a curtain
and the best part is that the duvet was in no way altered or damaged to create this !!!
Ok - we have to saw a box spring to get it up the stairs...................so I would imagine there's going to be conversations and a half going on here this weekend.
Yes - you actually heard me right.
Why stairs were ever built this narrow I have no idea - didn't they have box springs 100 years ago?
( it's not so much that they're narrow - it's that turn half way that stops us from getting it up there )
Have a Happy Hallowween and a wonderful weekend everyone -
Looking for inspiration?
