Been on a roll today....

And got a little more done on Cora's 'Gothic' Room. I painted the base to the bed black....this will eventually have some black ruffles around the bottom, and maybe some fancy black trim? I was able to rummage up some carpet padding and made a mattress. Then, I put the 'fitted' sheet on the bed, but until I find a piece of material I like, I mean Cora likes, I can't finish making the bed. I can make those skeleton pillows, but I have to sew them by hand....and I hate doing that, it's sooooo boring!! So for now...this is what the bed will look like.

I also painted the chest today.......Looks good in here, huh!
I painted it black......stamped some gold images onto it.....
....painted the inside 'wild iris'...and then put a coat of varnish on it. I also remembered to take the hardware off before I started painted, so I also had to put that back on...
This will be the perfect place for this 'Gothic teen' to store all her treasures!! Wonder what we can make to go in here?
