I need some help and would love to hear your opinion...pretty please!
Okay so the bed makeover hasn't really been going as planned. To make a long story super short basically we were planning on building the Ana White Farmhouse Bed and instead of the paneling I was going to put fabric on the inside. This way it has the upholstered feel I wanted with the painted wood Jeff wanted.
Well we planned and planned some more, measured and measured again got some wood thought things out, returned some wood and after all that we decided to make an upholstered headboard.
That is really what I wanted all along but I was trying to accommodate what he liked but then learned he didn't really care and said I could do what I wanted to do as he knows it is my "thing" so I am free to do as I please. Don't you love when husbands say that!
So moving ahead my fabric that I ordered (for $7.75 per square foot!) came the other day, and I am loving it!
It looks just like my inspiration photo. I fell like the headboard should be a bold statement so I wanted to mimic that feel and keep the rest of the bed neutral with pops of accent colors.
(inspiration photo...are you sick of me showing this to you yet?!)
So we are now building a headboard frame to upholster. I'll be sure to post a step by step on that once it is complete.
But here is where I need you. Which way should the fabric go?! Originally I was thinking vertical but then Jeff suggested horizontal so I tried that and like it too.
And please ignore the horrible photos and the screaming child. I literally took these a little while ago (you know the witching hour when we're tired and cranky and haven't napped). Yup, bedtime was 6:45 tonight!
So what are you feeling? What catches your eye?
Or are you to distracted by my rockin nightstand/lamp situation I have going on? Ahhh I promise once this bed ordeal is done the rest of the room will go quickly and smoothly. No more hiccups.
