I'm getting there....

I spent the day yesterday, trying to figure out how to go about making the bed for Cora's Gothic room.....And while I was hunting for ideas....I came across this little end table. It was a kit that had been put together...but sat unfinished. So, I painted it black, filed off the edges, coated it with some varnish......and added a gold star stud earring as the handle. I'd like to find a skeleton or something instead of the star...but for now it will do.

And here's where I'm at today. I got the bed frame built......Just needs a mattress. Now, I sat and thought about this issue pretty hard yesterday....and was almost ready to beg one of you for something to use...but then it hit me. Carpet padding! Duh! The bf installs carpet for a living and all I need to go is remember to grab a 3x6 scrap next time one of the vans is here!!

I thinking black satin sheets.....Some skeleton pillows......A fuzzy (black?) fur rug!~ LOL, gotta find something to break up that white floor! That little trunk behind the bed will probably get painted black, too...to match the night stand. Oh......and the wall needs another coat of paint....and I was thinking I might stencil something on the walls!? It's a good start, huh???

It is better than a good start! I can't get over how good that headboard looks against that nook. The chest looks like its got loads of potential. The bedside table rocks too. It's very quaint. I really like that too. You do need a black fur rug on the floor. Maybe a big round one?

I also really like the new look of your blog.
