Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

It's time for Show and Tell Friday once again!  This week I'm sharing a new project.  My wonderful dad did the hard part of this project, he built it. I just need to sand it and paint it and I hope to get that done this weekend! 

It's a bed crown which will be hung on the wall over my bed close to the ceiling.  It will have long fabric panels attached inside and draped to the sides.
I'm planning on painting it a creamy white (to match my bed)
with some blue accents.  I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep the finial at the top or remove it so I can hang it closer to the ceiling.  I'm planning on using sheer white fabric to hang from the inside and drape to each side of the bed posts. I'll include some photos of my room (which still isn't finished) in this post, just so you can get an idea of how it will look.
You can see where it will be hung in the photo below...

Cindy said...

Your bedroom is pretty now, but it will be so gorgeous with that crowning it! It will truly be your "crowning glory". Sorry for the pun, but I had to. I love the color of your walls and I love how individual your decor is, it isn't nearly as trendy as so many, I think that's what makes it so attractive.
Hugs, Cindy S

You're so lucky to have such a talented dad. It's really a spectacular piece that you'd be hard pressed to buy anywhere. I can't wait to see the finished product.

I'd love to have you join "Summer Sundays". It's a meme about what summer means to you. Perhaps you could share some of your lovely garden.

Jenny said...

The crown looks fantastic - what a clever Dad! I would leave the finial on it, I think it makes it. Can't wait to see it painted and in place above your gorgeous bed.

Kathy said...

That's very lovely, you can consider turning it upside down having the finial on the bottom. Either way, I am sure this is going to be a lovely addition.
God Bless,
Kathy
