More Bedroom

I am still trying to get my bedroom together. The palace painting from CB2 arrived earlier in the week. I'm not completely sure I'll be keeping it. While I like it, it might be too much. If I keep it, no doubt I'll have to remove the Capricorn picture.

I've ordered the bed pedestal from Overstock. I'm thinking it wouldn't be difficult to convert the pedestal into a platform bed. If I can pull it off, I can lose the bench at the end of my bed. The yellow headboard will be history. It's already on Craigslist. Ikea is having a fabulous one day sale on the Malm platform bed, today, but I'm not up to the 7 hour round trip. Given the chance that a long drive to Atlanta might net me nada, and I would want to paint the bed white if I could get it, I decided to go an easier route. I'm perfectly satisfied with my decision. I hope I'm still saying that when the bed arrives.

The mound of fabric is 13 yards of 60" wide cotton twill that will eventually become a duvet cover like this:

I've been visiting my local Walmart fabric department regularly, hoping to come across a suitable inexpensive gray fabric. It's a good weight and washable, and a bargain at $2.50 yd..

More later...
