"Good, Better, Best.
Never let them rest, until your Good is Better,
and your better
When I was in grade 5, this motto was posted across the top of the classroom wall.
simple words to live by
I had an idea with regard to the bedroom of #43. I wanted to make it Better.
Through trails and errors, this is the ( newest) final result.
|I mocked it up to see if what I had envisioned, would even Look any good, then|
I used some paper to see just what it Would look like with a lowered canopy over the bed
|I liked the effect. |
But how could I get it to work?
|Meanwhile, I decided to make some more curtains. I was also looking to see how best to make a valance. By this stage I was out of the toile fabric and so this meant|
No Mistakes were Allowed
( sorry about the fuzzy photo)
But, then, when I took this shot, a bell went off in my head
'Hey, I've seen this somewhere before!'
Then I remembered....
Pinned onto my INSPIRATION BOARD that is on my studio wall, I have a tear sheet of a bedroom that I love.
|Uncanny! I didn't realize how much it looked like this picture until I was done!|
I guess this photo Really WAS Inspiring! :D
|#43 Green Dolphin Street|
My revised miniature bedroom!
|I love the variations of the shapes, spaces and textures. A future project will include a small ladder which will be kept under the bed for reaching those items stowed up in the loft|
( in the book, Green Dolphin Street ) across the Atlantic to marry William in New Zealand! A little Nautical reference after all! (whoohoo! )Things are looking Better and Better all the time!
Nice and Cosy!
|I also gave a little 'face lift' for the standing mirror on the painted chest of drawers. |
I added a filigree frame around it, to fussy it up!
|So This is now what it looks like with all the items in place|
|And here is the entire room with the new bed curtains and also showing the stairwell|
|And this is the view looking to the left! I love this shot!|
it reminds me of the motion of a boat the way it seems to be leaning left,
|My two friends, are by far|
The VERY Best!
