Casa del Spud

Finally, some piccies of Spudly's room.


Somewhat of a difference from
this...


and this...













To this...


I made the nappy stacker hanging on the wall. A girlfriend made the angel bear hanging over the change table for me years ago. The three bears on the dresser are (l-r) my first bear, Monkey Boy's first bear and Spudly's first bear.






I also made the purple fake fur loveheart cushion for our wedding. It carried our rings. Awwwww.








The books are all mine from my childhood. I wonder if Spud will enjoy Anne of Green Gables and Trixie Belden?






I wanted to make curtains. After wandering around the fabric store for aaaages, I finally came across this fabulous organza with metallic silver stars embroidered on it...









which happened to tie in quite nicely with the silver star lampshade we already had in our bedroom...

I made those ceiling drapes too, by the way.





And thus, we have a theme:


It's so perdy. The shade makes stars on the walls too. I wonder if Spud would mind if we trade bedrooms?


So to re-cap; I made the nappy stacker, I made the curtains, I made the ceiling drapes, I helped put in the skirting boards and architraves (I painted them first), I painted the walls and the ceiling, I painted the door, I painted the ceiling, and I started sanding the floor but had the belt sander confiscated.

Actually, I'm quite tired.

  2. The room is simply magical. Well done! I especially love the ceiling drapes.

    And also, my mom collects those damn Trixie Belden books. I swear she has over 100.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I'm so impressed and you must be so damn proud of yourself! Way to go!

    Now all it needs is a Spud!

  4. I love, love, love the ceiling drapes. The effect with the star lamp is fantastic. I'm jealous now.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
