This is what the bedroom looked like when we first moved in, dark curtains and colourful quilt and cheap ikea lamps, was willing to live with it like this when we thought we would only be here for a few months.Can you say yuk ............................... yes Maggie thinks it is her bed
So then came the idea of using the half shelf that came with the white mirror I have on the wall. I glued some sheers to the inside of the shelf and draped them over the window. If you try this let the glue dry over night, don't try to staple or tape the sheers to the shelf, trust me it does not work. The tape won't hold and these shelves are hard plastic and staples won't penetrate the hard plastic. Yes they were my first tries and after flying staples and sheers that kept sliding out of the tape, I tried the glue, much easier and more productive.
So after some coaxing to get hubby to help me hang the shelf (ok nagging) the shelf and curtains are up. I paid 2.00 dollars for the mirror and shelf, and 2.00 dollars for the sheers, both bought at thrift stores here in Kamloops. So for a very low price I get more of a romantice look in my not so blah anymore bedroom.
Half shelf with sheer curtains
Mirror that goes with shelf and picture frames turned into chalkboards
Well now the bedroom has a little more of a romantic look, too bad I can't give hubby a romantic makeover lol
