This morning I had to hunt for the black fabric. I put it away in a very safe place....I finally found it in the closet with my clothes??
I got to work and starting with the bedspread, I glued everything together.
First the spread. I glued the edges lightly to the side skirts. Then I trimmed and put on the long curtains. The tops got trimmed down to about 1/2" and were bent, glued to the top and pinned in place until they dried.
Then the top valence was added in the same manner. The top was covered with a piece of poster board, cut to fit and covered with the darker fabric. That was pinned in place and left to dry.
I did the pillows the same way that I do for all of the beds. It is covered in an earlier bed tutorial, so I won't repeat that part here.
I did one long Tampex tube bolster pillow to prop up the back of the pillows. Four rectangular pillows to sit in front of that and then a smaller bolster pillow. That one, Tessie grabbed and wouldn't give up for anything.
She has been zapping the bed all over the house. It is getting rather irritating to other homeowners.
She keeps popping in and trying it out in various rooms.
The last thing I did was chase her down and put ribbon tie backs on the curtains.
No. Wait.... That wasn't the last thing. The last thing I did was lock her out of the computer room so that I could take a photo of the bed without her messing it up.
You should have heard the hysterical shouting and banging on the door!
No....On second thought, it was not at all pleasant.
I did get the photo that I wanted. Here is the finished bed. The lighter fabric still looks somewhat bluish, but it isn't. Honest.
Everything is peaceful now. I am not sure where the bed is at the present time. It disappeared as soon as I let her back into the computer room.
I am going to assume that sooner or later she will run out of zap and put the bed in the townhouse, where it belongs, and take a long nap.
I am off to open the box I just received from Greenleaf. The contest kits are here. As usual, I probably won't enter. I just liked the kit. Sooner or later it will turn into something. Probably for Tessie, if she has anything to say about it. Maybe I should just go hide it under the bed for now.....
See you tomorrow.
