We don't get a lot of space in the master bedrooms over here in Sweden, so it's important to be clever with your space. We decided to forego the free-standing bureaus and dressers for storing our clothes (which I find devastating given all the excellent dresser re-dos out there in blogland) - and build our cabinets directly on the wall (LOVE flat pack packaging from IKEA - we're using the Bestå line - intended for living rooms, but we're *gasp* breaking the rules).
Sew the seams on the strip (no measuring, just use the foot on the machine as your guide), and then sew the strip on the curtain material with one of the machines 'decorative' stitches. Staple on that batting, and then the material. Ahhhh, staple guns...one of the most satisfying tools out here! Seriously! You must try it.
I knew I wanted the wall hanging to 'float' on the wall, so my
assistant hubby glued some scrap wood pieces on the back of the MDF board for me and we let it set overnight (I hate waiting). Next day was to simply add eye screws and some scrap wire for hanging, and then hang it on the wall and stand back to admire it.
Hmmmm...head cocked to the side...it wasn't quite the effect I was hoping it would be.
So, what happens next? Don't miss the next episode of "Semi-Extreme
Until next time...
