Blindz for boyz – FO 7/2010

The boy’s room has been looking more than a little Spartan of late.

This week Mr S put the cot bed and chest of drawers into the room.  We won’t mention the Mystery of the Missing Cot Bolts.

Today I’ve ordered the mattress and bed linen. And hung a blind:

There is a toning pair of curtains to be made (the last pair for the house…huzzah!), but until I find a pole that matches the furniture, they are on hold.  I can’t say I’m sorry not to be sewing them at the moment.  I’m beyond bored of making window treatments.

The fabric is from John Lewis (of course) and I love its cheerfulness. However I never cease to be amazed at the difference 1.5 m of fabric and a little stitching can make to a room.

  1. It does look cheery and perfect for a little boy 🙂 You’ve done a wonderful job with all your window treatments.
    I have a pair on my to do list too, and hope to get at them tomorrow…I “finally” had time (took the time) to finish my red dress today and am now giving it a final press…yay! 🙂

    Hehe, being a boy, he won’t notice the lack of curtains. How exciting to be able to get the room together.
