The Not so Perfect Bed

Sunday, August 1, 2010


I just read a great "how to" on making a bed look messy, on a blog called Funky Junk Interiors. And I am itching to give this a try.


Normally I make my bed... just so... each morning. And I like it.
 I really don't mind making it. 
But recently I've come across a few intriguing photo shots of shabby chic crumbled up, messy looking beds that have me... well let's just say, fantasizing. They look so romantic. I think I can do it. I'm going to try.


Here is how my bed at the Beach House normally looks:


Now I am leaving for a while to go try this... messiness...


Ummmnn ....that was fun. 


 I really love how it turned out and it was pretty easy, interestingly enough I had a duvet cover I purchased 2 years ago on sale that I never used, because I really like my rag quilt, and I was  thinking I would have to switch it out entirely. 

But with this idea from Funky Junk Interiors I could use it with my rag quilt, as an accent piece...yippeee! Get that pretty baby out of the closet! 
And i just crumpled up that duvet cover and fluffed it up on top of the rag quilt, and viola!

Here is the result...

                        
Pulled the bedsheets down a bit..

I just had to take another shot.






I love the new crumpled up look!
It's inviting.

And I have to show you the the cute little nite table that came with the house!
It stands on the right side of the bed.




I just gave it a fresh coat of Behr Cottage white paint.
It's chippy is ala natural, cause it got painted 4 years ago!!

The adorable plate on top serves as a landing spot at night for a drink, glasses, etc... I got it for 25 cents at a thrift!
Seashell found on the beach.



I love the touches of aqua in the leaves.

 Now I wont feel so bad when by bed's not picture perfectly made.

  6. Hi - I am reading this kind of late - but I wanted to tell you that I love your messy bed! I haven't formed a complete opinion on how I feel about all the bedd messiness going on - but when it's done well - it's lovely!

    I left Donna from Funky Junk Interiors a comment when I saw her instructions on how to make a messy bed. I told her that I could have used this technique when I was an teenager - when my parents were after me to clean up my room...and my bed!

    Great job!
