The mattress for our oldest child’s hot pink four-poster bed finally arrived today! Woot! I had been waiting and waiting for it to get here so I could take some photos of these other projects for the Sewing for Your Home e-course: the bed skirt, the duvet, and the tab-top curtains. Sadly, our youngest child knocked my camera to the floor yesterday and broke the lens–no more focusing it, pretty much ever. She didn’t mean to–she’s not even two. But it was a bummer, for sure.
Which means no Big Reveal of the Teen Room, like I’d hoped. But! I’ve got a new lens on order, to arrive on Monday, so we can do it then. In the meantime, I give you: sneak previews. These were taken with my 50mm static lens, which means I can’t zoom out or back in–I can only capture what will fit in the viewfinder. Great for up-close shots, not so great for revealing a whole room. But even in small doses, I gotta be honest: this room kinda rocks. And the bed skirt? Killing it.
As Rachel Zoe would say: Ba.na.nas. I reeeeaaaallly love the bed frame in this electric pink, and the bed skirt (which was originally intended to be made from Kona snow, but magically transformed itself into this Anna Maria home dec print at the absolute last minute) is shutting it down. Shutting. It. Down. The pillows are perfection in here, and the curtains, despite not being made specifically for this room, are just the right touch of casual elegance.
Can’t wait to show it all to you on Monday. In the meantime! If you haven’t yet signed up for the Sewing for Your Home online class, there are just a handful of spots left! Come on over!
