One if by Land, Two if by Sea!


I've been working hard on my little beds!
Couldn't wait to show you!


As you can see, there's been a change of plans! I was going to make this the master bedroom. Then when I thought about climbing all of those stairs I decided this room would be for the children. I will have give them very stern instructions about the beds! I don't want them banging the beds into the wall or climbing the ropes! Am I asking too much here?

I'm hoping to add more furniture, toys and accessories as time goes on...



Fiasco seems to like being on the top floor of the house. As long as he's happy, I'm happy.
He keeps looking at me when I talk. I know he doesn't understand me but I just keep talking anyway. Maybe one of these days he will say something? I've heard that parrots can be very talkative
?

Making these wave headboards was the most difficult thing to make. Especially when the only tools you have are a craft knife and a little miter saw. Dear Dremel was no help at all. I guess I could have used cardboard but I like making things from wood. I really need a coping saw or band saw!

Do you think some little fish would look cute on the headboard?

I made the mattresses from some 1" thick padding I found in the xray room at work. Very soft and comfy! Can't wait to make some little quilts for the beds...


I love these little flags! I found them yesterday when I was looking for something else!

So for now, this is the attic bedroom. I wish it had a big sliding window that opened to the sea. It would be so nice to hear the waves and see the moonlight on the shore!

Blessings, Kathi

I love your suspended beds very much. Be careful or Fiasco might make that bed his permanent perch!

How fun! I like the curved bases and wave headboards. Fish on the headboards would be cute, but it may depend on how busy your linens are if you should add fish or not.

This room is turning out so well!
