Sadly, this is my last entry for Crafting with the Stars. :( Bummer...but, I still lurve the project!!
I painted the striped curtains with hot pink paint and a white twin top sheet from Wal-Mart. After I painted the striped curtains, I painted the old window frames I picked up at a flea market for $10 each. They started red and I painted them white originally. I used them in our bedroom as the headboard.
|I'm thinking of making a tufted or different headboard for the master bedroom now!|
For this, I switched it up to a much more girly pink! I planned to paint a multi-colored chevron to use for the headboards...epic fail.
My inspiration for this project was this amazing set from PB Teen:
I may have had a mild nervous break down.
After I decided it wasn't the end of the world, I headed to Joann's for some fabric. While I am perusing, but what to my wondering eye should appear, but a perfect striped chevron and eight tiny reindeer. Seriously, they already had their Christmas crap out! I passed on the reindeer and picked up the fabric and a few more fun ones for pillows! For the headboard, I just stapled the Chevron fabric to the back of the old windows and screwed them to the wall. I took the lazy way out on the pillows...heatbond tape. It's my guilty pleasure...no sewing just my trusty iron. The iron only gets used for heat bond and to iron on Girl Scout patches....I do not iron our clothes. Oh, no my secrets out :) The girl's love their new room and I couldn't be more pleased and I only had one mildly neurotic episode!!
We're not quite done with their room...I'm thinking they need this piece of art work and a few more ideas I pinned from pinterest!
I'm thinking it would be easy to add these to a pre-made white quilt or comforter!
Mama may not sew, but she can modify!
