I’ve been eyeing one of these amazing diptychs from Urban Garden Prints for ages. I loved the color and the design of two frames for one image and when I redid the bedroom, I finally had the right wall. The website sells frames, but I wanted something a bit bulkier for our bedroom so I decided to challenge myself and try to figure out a DIY version.
HOLY SMOKES this space has been a long time coming together but all the little details and projects have been worth it because I walk in here every night and smile a big ol’ goofy grin! What used to be a big dated cavernous space now feels cozy and cohesive and so much more dynamic. Over the last few months I’ve done the following in here (full product list at the end of the post):
For as long as I can remember, I’ve DIYed my holiday gifts. In college it was decoupaged picture frames. In my early twenties I got really carried away and hand embroidered flowered napkins and painted napkin rings. And more recently, it’s corralling the kids to make things like DIY ornaments or painted coffee mugs.
Our new bedroom is pretty much finished and I couldn’t be happier with it! Full reveal post coming soon but in short… I painted, swapped out some furniture and brought in a bunch of amazing fabric from Spoonflower. The curtains were already made as were the pillow cases and sheets, but the bedskirt was for me to figure out.
If you haven’t already read it, Eve Bunting’s The Night Tree is a magical story about a Christmas Tree for the birds and animals. We read it last year so when I set up one of our artificial trees outside, it seemed fitting that we would decorate it with edible munchies for all our wildlife friends! I set up everything at the kitchen table and the kids moved through making ornaments and garland however they liked.
