l recently got rid of a lot of junk out of the spare room so l had a new space to play with:-) l'm pretty sure there's a little bit of bohemian in most of us, so hopefully you'll enjoy this post as much as l had fun putting it together for you.
The post was inspired by this beaded quilt l found at the Salvos. l blew the budget but l reckon it was soo worth the $20, when you consider the time and patience it must take to produce such a thing. The quilts are made in India, from old/worn out sari's. They're joined together and then embellished with various beads, pearls, diamentes, mirrors and metallic threads. To me the whole thing's a work of art.
After finding the quilt l came across these pellets stacked at the side of the road (free)...... lt wasn't fun getting them in my car and let's not go there with the splinters.... but hey, l was pretty keen to make my daybed.....since l had plenty of green paint that's the colour it was painted.
.............and what's a post without a few roses:-)...some were bought and some are from the garden but l think the mix of colours looks a bit bohemian gypsyish. Although l'm not a huge fan of yellow this tumbler was one of my favourite finds at the opshop for just 20 cents.
The Madonna and child bottle was one l painted and decorated a couple of years ago.
The spaces in the pellets make a fantastic bookshelf.
Although l really like the look, the daybed won't be staying....eventually the pellets will be used on the fire and the quilts will head back to the cupboard.....nothing too permanent in here so l can experiment some more:-)
The ultimate bohemian Magnolia Pearl. The first pic is inside her airstream trailer and the one above is in the garden of her previous home, both pics via pinterest.
Thanks so much for stopping by......have a great weekend won't you.
Til next time
