Hope you had a great weekend, it was glorious in Denver and you'd never know it was
November. Ours was filled with hours of sports activities.
I wanted to share some of the behind the scenes details from the reveal of our bedroom.
Lots of little tips on how I created things and answers to your questions I've received.
If you remember I was so disappointed when I first saw the headboard, reason was
because it was so short, so this is how I created the kingdom look I was hoping for: :)
Instead of sitting the headboard on the floor I attached it to the wall using D-rings at my
desired height, 15" above the floor. Bed risers weren't the exact height I wanted so I
used 4 - 2 x 4's, 2 on each side of the bed resting on the bed frame.
(Home Depot cut 12' pieces in half for me.)
Did you wonder where all my cable cords were?
I detest all of those ugly cords!
The cable outlet is being re-located right below the tv, I'm cutting a hole in the bottom
of the drawer and attaching the cord to the back side of the console, down the leg and
across the bottom on the underside.
It's not one of my favorite features of the room, so I chose not to show it with the reveal.
I do like it much better now that it fades into the ceiling. I added clear globes to update it.
(Oops, I just noticed I don't have the pretty pulls on here.)
BLACK & WHITE PRINT:
I had the 30" x 40" print made at Staples for $5 and used an Ikea Ribba frame. I scanned a
photo from a book, saved it to a USB drive and took it to Staples, they made the copy in
about 15 minutes.
The gold pieces above the mirrors are heavy antique iron pieces I've had forever,
I couldn't ever figure out what to do with them. I painted them gold, and attached them
to the wall above the mirrors.

I'd never used these bedskirt pins, but remembered my friend had in her
super easy diy bedskirt tutorial. I simply measured the perimeter of the mattress for my
length of fabric and the drop from the top of the mattress to the floor, adding about 6"
to allow for attaching to the mattress. And, secured with these little gems! Super easy!
Have you had enough of ORC? I'm ready for a new project!
Stop by tomorrow for a fun giveaway! :)
So sorry, Blogger has been messing with my spacing lately. It looks fine in draft
and when I publish it is all wacky! Sometimes I have energy to redo, but tonight I'm done!
