Remember that under-coated sleigh bed?
Remember my remark about 'simple Scandinavian style'?
Ha! I must have still been overcome with IKEA fumes or something when I wrote that post, because this is the scene that ended up coming together around the bed:
(OK, maybe there's a bit of Scandinavian influence in there but I'm mainly feeling New York loft.)
The industrial shelves, long on my eBay watch list and now added to my collection were a major influence in the direction the room ended up heading (I'm still looking for the Toy Island version, as seen in Mini Modern's blog, if anyone sees any spare...)
The cinching factor was an experiment I did with my last piece of bamboo runner, a coat of undercoat, followed by a coat of chalkboard paint and a play with my mouse sander:
(I'm ever so pleased with the effect!)
Don't Mini Dork's cushions work perfectly with the colour palette?
And look what's tucked away on the shelving unit...
