This is sadly just a teaser - I was hoping to have the bed for our Little Man's new room done by now, but it's going to be at least another week, I think. Here's where we're at so far... I bought and assembled the Ikea bed frame, like so:
Also, I hate the fabric - I was trying to be thrifty, and the wool felt I used echoes the blue in the rug but it's just not working - it's too loud and it looks cheap. Happily, it was only $5 for all the yardage I needed, so it's not a big deal now that I have to recover it. Want to know what I've chosen as its replacement?
fabric.com - I can handle $80 total.
So now I'm just waiting for the fabric to arrive and the mattress we bought over the weekend to be delivered. Oh, and I still have to make another trip to JoAnn's for the foam batting. Once all that is here, it shouldn't take long at all to finish it up, so it's all coming together, even if it is a slower process than I'd like.
