BEFORE & AFTER: Sleeping Nook

How was everyone's St. Patrick's weekend?  Do anything fun on Saturday?  I ended up on Sullivan's Island for their annual celebration. Planning on enjoying a beer or two in the beautiful weather then head home, those 2 hours turned into 10; ending with a dinner party at a fabulous beachfront home on the Island.  Oops!  I still managed to finish up a project and sew one slipcover though. 

Some of you may remember a headboard I designed for a client about a month ago.  I finished that project this weekend.  The client's bedroom is an intimate nook surrounded by beadboard walls on 3 sides.  The ceilings are around 12' high, so you don't feel like the walls are closing in on you.  It's a charming little place that overlooks Colonial Lake downtown in Charleston.  This sleeping nook just needed a little pick-me-up.  Here is the before and after.  What a difference!



The only hard part about these little nooks - making up the bed!
