I've spent ages on this today and I'm not sure if I like it or not. I used florists wire and cardboard and some findings and painted it all over with gesso. Then I stuck some little flowers on. I think this bed actually looks better in the room with the bare boards so I may swap the upstairs rooms over.
A friend sent me a bundle of lace the other day so I have used one piece as a coverlet but I'm not sure if this is really the look I wanted for the bed so it may change yet! The saying of the day is "not sure" !!
