More bedroom …

Standard

Time to make the beds up with suitable bits of fabric.  Each bed came with a mattress which I’ve decided to use so it’s just a case of wrapping them in various bits of cloth one way or another.

The mattresses for both beds are a bit thin but this is the overall result of holding in place with loose stitching.
It also means that, when you want something different it can all be easily released with no extra marks to the bed frames or mattresses
The sheets are odd scraps of reclaimed cotton, the blanket is from an old coat lining and the tight waffle bedspread is a piece from an elderly, much shrunk tea towel

Meanwhile, when no one is looking

You turn your back and this happens.
Not very 1950s but I do so like these pipe cleaner bears 🙂

Tent building

This is a clothes horse tent, by which I mean a blanket thrown over an H frame two-piece clothes horse made from a Jane Harrop kit.  It’s a great size and shape but very light and fragile.  I’ve given it a scrap of its own carpet (stuck to its outer legs) in order to hold it open as otherwise, when you put the blanket on it just folds up.

Other bits added

  1. it is a very sweet room and you have dressed the beds well. And I love the idea of a “tent” in the boy’s room. We used to make them all the time when I was a child.
    There is something magical about being inside one, and reading your favorite storybook by the light of a flashlight ( torch).

    • Those were the days indeed 🙂
      Torches were a major feature of my childhood reading habits, reading into the early hours under the covers and getting up too quickly in the morning, dizzy with lack of sleep
