This challenge is about the hours after the sun has gone down: a bed, a lamp , pyjamas or even a pub were some of the given suggestions.
The bedroom I made for challenge 8:"Ultra violet" would have been perfect to fit this challenge but as I was stuck for new ideas I decided to make another bed.
For this bed I followed Kyraja´s tutorial but I made my own headboard.
Any idea what did I use for the headboard?
I know a bottle of olive oil has nothing to do with beds but its handle makes a perfect headboard. Don´t you think so?
I cut it a little bit ,I painted it white and glued the fabric to a piece of cardboard.
I also made the duvet, a pillow and some cushions.
My daughter insisted this bed should be for Sadie Fenton. I think she is right. Sadie´s dress colours really match the bedding so she´ll be the lucky owner of this semi-double bed.
I started decorating a room in Cedar Terrace to take pictures of the bed but I didn´t have time to finish it so the pictures were taken on my daughter´s bed.
At first,I thought a semi-double bed was too big for Sadie but I changed my mind soon.You´ll understand the reason when you read this mini story.
It´s night time and Sadie has just gone to sleep.She is very snug and cozy in her new bed.
She was about to fall asleep when she heard her little sister´s voice:"Sis,I had a bad dream. Can I sleep with you, please?"
Poppy jumped into her sister´s new bed.
Sadie told Poppy her favourite story.
"Once upon a time there was a little girl called Poppy…"
Sadie couldn´t finish telling the story.The two sisters cuddled up together, they fell asleep and had very sweet dreams.
This will be the last challenge I´ll be able to join at least for a while. I had hand surgery a few days ago so that means no more crafts until my hand is fully recovered. I´ll keep blogging as I have pictures to upload from my camera to write new posts.
I´m lucky the surgery was on the left hand.
Thanks for reading!
A big hug!
