Silk Padded Wall

 
Why would a builder stick a window in the corner on the Bed facing wall???
Symmetry !!!!
 
 
 
Here's the plan... Let's make it disappear
 
We covered the window with blackout fabric.
My supplies:
Measuring tape
Foam core
Batting
Fabric
2 inch strips of wood
Nail gun
and the all powerful glue gun 
 
 
 
We wanted a grid look so we purchased wooden slats and painted them
 with Ralph Lauren metallic silver paint

 




We found beautiful silk fabric.
 We measured, we cut, we hot glued the batting and Fabric on to the foam core. 


We cut strips of wood to size and nailed them to hold the panels.
They are snug as a bug!


 
We worked our way down the wall.
 
 What Window?
  
 
 
 Here is a photo taken during the day,
We still get plenty of light in our relaxing boudoir.
 
 
 
 
 


 

DIY Stain Staircase Hand Rails


It's been our mission since we bought this house to never see yellow oak again!
The problem: Light oak staircase... oh...and no carpet
Time for a makeover....
We began by taping the spindles and carpet at the bottom of the newels (post) to protect our new carpet.
Buhbye yellow oak...

This is one coat of gel stain.
If you desire a darker look this can be achieved by applying another coat.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Turquoise Armoire

 
My Husband just finished this beautiful piece of furniture for a client.
Love the color, the design, the scale, the damask stencil,
 I love everything about this piece.
And when he told me it is being used to hold shoes!!
I love it even more!!
 
This is such a happy color...
 


Great Jewelry Selection!
