It's a date!

 My wonderful husband and I had a date today. We explored some of our favorite antique/vintage shops and had dinner. One of my finds was this two door console table. I don't know if it will fit under the stairs but that's my hope.
 I also found fabric for the master bedroom. The "sort of toile like" floral fabric and the sheet fabric were purchased today. I made the upholstered headboard from balsa and fun foam and tufted it. The bed itself is two layers of styrofoam. I am a bit disappointed in the layout of the bedroom. There is no good place for a double bed. This is the best option and I have blocked the French doors. I may turn the doors into a large arched window or leave them as doors that open out so they are still usable from the back side of the bed. In either case, I plan to make full length drapes that hang to the sides of the doors.
 Here's a closer view of the tufting and the different fabrics I used.
An overall view - my current plan is to make the ceiling beamed since I have all that upward space. Too bad I can't convert a bit of that to usable wall and floor space. ;-)

It sounds like you and your husband had a fun time on your date.
The new bedding looks really comfy and cosy. Great job with the upholstered headboard. I also love the wallpaper you have used in the bedroom.

Thank you, ladies!

Isabelle, we did have fun. It had been awhile since we'd taken time for just us. :-)

Thank you! I just started back to work today (elementary school instructional assistant) so my project will be slowed down. Boo. But I'm leaving it in the living room so I can work on little bits as I do have time.

Hi De, Just a thought, you could place the bed in front of the large arched window and make the curtains look like bed curtains too, all coordinating?
