loose ends

Filed under: Sewing for Kids (not quilts) — perrymoffitt @ 5:13 pm

my most loyal blog follower asked how my trundle bed project looked finished. And as a good blogger I staged a clean room picture and I now I realize this picture shows a few projects in their finished state. The tree mural from before my daughter was born with furniture in the room. The Dot Tree quilt to match the mural, at home on her bed. And my creative solution to missing a drawer to this hand-me-down trundle bed. I made a plywood piece the same size as a drawer face and hinges make it a quick cabinet door. I covered them in quilting cotton with some pockets to hold treasures. I check that the treasures aren’t food ever since I watched her shimmy a popsicle in one a few weeks ago.

I originally had picked out some blue glass knobs for the drawers, but when I found these pendant knobs (also at anthropologie), I knew they were a better, low profile option.

A real artist would find some time to paint that toddler bed gate white to match the bed, but I am far more interested in British mysteries on Netflix these days.

  1. Yay! It looks awesome! It’s nice to see the project in the context of the whole room. How old is your daughter, by the way? Probably by the time you get around to painting that little bed gate, she won’t need it anymore. 😉
