Bedroom Progress

I have been doing battle with the bed hangings recently - I just can't make up my mind which design to choose!  So for a little light relief, I made a couple of objects - a clothes chest and two oval paintings.  

                 The bed linen is progressing, I made a valance, using neither pretty pleater nor a thousand pins!  I'll show you how to do it when I do my next bedding tutorial.

                The bedroom is a real mess!  I am struggling with plaster dust at the moment, but I had a brainwave at about 12 last night, and sprayed the walls with hairspray.  I'll see if that helps a little!  Most of the debris comes from moving things about, which should stop soon as I start to glue things in permanently.

                 I made the little hook on the left using a black head pin and a piece of lolly stick.  The candle on the shelf is only there as a guide for the electrics, I want to get a little 'wee willie winkie' candle instead.

    I'd better get on with the bed hangings before they defeat me!



  1. I like your clothes chest.
    Bye Faby

  2. It already looks amazing! I'd love a tutorial as I struggle a bit with bedding. I keep making things and throwing them out again...

  3. Looks very promising. Can't wait to see it develop.

  4. I like the apparent symplicity of the room, the simple alcove, your use of clean white and then the single black chest. I wonder what kind of bed hangings you will be making, something very ornate to contrast with the room, or the opposite, simple but stylish?

  5. Bellissime miniature!!! Mi piace il tuo blog ..sono una tua nova amica!!!
    Vieni a trovarmi se ti va!!!
    Un bacio

  6. I like your white bedroom, love the box and paintings you made, wait with baited breath to see how you finish it.D

  7. Hello Jonquil,
    It is looking better and more real every time you post. I am always excited to see more of your work.
    Big hug,

  8. The room is coming along nicely! I do like those little paintings and the chest the bed is coming along well too, I look forward to seeing how you did it soon!!

  9. The chest with the oval painting is a lovely piece. Good luck with your bedding and I'm curious to see how you did the valance.
