I started out with the white painted bed and the first job was to give it a mattress. I found a little cushion in a charity shop for 75p that was almost the right size it just needed the width reducing slightly. After stitching it to the right size I added some tiny buttons just to make it look a little more like a mattress rather than a cushion! Funny how the tiniest detail suddenly made it look so different! I wish my mattress looked that comfy!!
Next I made some crisp white sheets courtesy of a pack of cotton placemats from poundland. You get 4 in a pack so I managed the bottom sheet, top sheet and pillow cases and still have a spare!
Then it was onto the make-up bag that I found in a charity shop for 50p. When I spotted it I had thought it would be just perfect for this job! I had already taken it all apart and there was plenty of fabric to make the eiderdown and some matching pillows. It was quite an easy job the only thing I had to really do was use some on the trim to finish of the edge of the eiderdown.
I am so pleased at the end result its perfect in this cottage and what an inexpensive project. All together the bed cost me £5.50 bunny excluded! (although she was only 99p anyway!)
I dressed the shelves with some pretty rose patterned paper and added some folded fabric and a few other items I had to hand. I will add nice bits and pieces as I find them.
I also added some of the paper to the dressing table and its drawers as I just thought it was pretty.
The room has a lovely cosy feel to it just what you would expect from a seaside cottage wish I could shrink myself down and get into that bed!!! I need to add lots more things to the rail but for now theres just one dress on a pretty hanger. I really need lots of hangers its the one thing I always seem to be short of!
