I can’t rememeber a time when I’ve ever shown my bedroom. Maybe I have and I apologize if I did, it was likely a sorry state. I’m not one to go out and buy a bunch of pieces all at once, so this room has been a work in progress since I moved back in September.
Jevan and I built this headboard over the weekend. We didn’t argue, we didn’t need multiple trips to the hardware store, no one stapled a finger to plywood and we spent about a total of 3.5 hours and less than $75 (including supply buying time and those sour cream and onion Pringles I couldn’t resist at the checkout). It was like a dream project if there ever could be one.
In the Tanner Goods workshop, we’ve been working a lot with waxed canvas. I really like the idea of using it for a headboard because of it’s utilitarian meets modern look. Not only is the color great, but because it’s waxed the fabric has a stiffness to it that you don’t get with other fabrics. I could even take my headboard outside in this Portland rain and it would fare well. Can you’re headboard do that? I didn’t think so.
Hospital corners even a maid at the Waldorf Astoria would be proud to show.
Another semi recent acquisition; a pair of teak side tables with a leather magazine sling.
