Finally! I have started work on the attic bedrooms. As there is only one bedroom so far in the Canal House (which seems a bit odd for such a big house), I decided that the attic would have two bedrooms and a bathroom. For one of the bedrooms I have just finished making this bed.
The bed is in the Louis XVI style, made out of pieces of skirting board and matboard and upholstered with a white cotton. As it is mostly matboard (which basically is a thick cardboard) it is not as strong as a wooden bed would be. But as long as the inhabitants of the Canal House don't start jumping up and down on it, the bed should be fine.
The sheet and pillowcase are made of fine cotton. I printed the duvet cover on a piece of regular white cotton from an old sheet. The design is actually from an old rug, but I rather like it for the bed.
I made the mattress from a lovely striped cotton resembling ticking. It was supposed to be covered up by the bedding, but as I finished it I liked it so much I wanted to have it exposed a bit. Totally unrealistic of course, who ever sleeps on a mattress without any sheets? But it looks nice!
The painting is one I found on internet and printed to the right size for the little frame. I have had the frame for ages, I don't really know where it came from. It was very chunky though, so I reduced the thickness of it by at least half (just by sanding and sanding and sanding....) which now makes it pretty and delicate.
