Big Brass Bed

I found this brass bed on Ebay and just had to have it. I've never seen another one like it. Isn't it pretty!?

I received my palm tree fabric the same day. Looks like they were made for each other?

The box the bed came in says it is 1:12 scale but if it is, it's a king size bed! It is 4" x 6" but to me it looks larger. I think it will be perfect for the Flamingo Inn.


I've been working on my new staircase and landing all day. I wish I had paid more attention in geometry class!

I got distracted from building and "painted" some art on the stairs after I saw this image at Coastal Living.


I'm still trying to figure out the landing. It's not as easy as it looks! Trying to get it all level and plumb and the angles correct has become a real challenge! I wish I had four hands!

Great bed...it's weird how the mini versions of certain things look so huge sometimes, isn't it? I love the fabric with it and what you've done with the stairs. Though I don't live on the coast, I subscribe to Coastal Living...such great inspiration.

The print brings up the bed detail nicely. I love your artwork, it turned the mundane into something that draws they eye.
