Hello again.

Lately I have kind of been on self/husband- imposed design restrictions (due to the rather large purchase (for us) of the dining room chairs! :)  ) Thus the lack of design posts, it has been best for me to abstain from planning and dreaming for our apartment. Also, I have been arguing with myself over "real" furniture, particularly for our porch. This apartment will only be our home until November of 2011 so I cannot justify buying anything to fit this space...ahh, that and budget. SO. Until the day we buy a house we will continue to do small, fun projects with what we already have or is very inexpensive. So now that we are back on budget Nate is dying to get something done for our bedroom. I like to take things one at a time, if I have the luxury with a space, so that I can be sure I LOVE something and am not picking it because it works. So here is what we have picked thus far.
I will be ordering 6 yards of this baby from Premier Prints to sew a box-pleated bedskirt. And then upholstering headboard a using this template from Grace at Design*Sponge.
In a masculine dark linen
"Steel"
"Graphite"
"Ash"

I would love to attempt to do a nailhead border about 3 inches in, but, with my affinity to draw something out, we will just make the headboard then decide whether or not to do nailheads.
