1  Lounging Nook in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by kittykill on: September 07, 2014 04:13:57 PM


Front view


I told my husband that I wanted a fort in my craft room. After I sat through his giggles, he said he thought it was a neat idea. My first thought was to build a teepee and I even found some cool curtains to use but then when I got home and realized that my ceiling was too low and the slope was too much. I decided to build a nook instead.

I went around town and found some pallets, sanded them down and then went to the home improvement store and bought two foam mattresses. I had a feather mattress and put that on top. The foam and the mattress are a little shorter than the pallets so I also made a place for a light, books and pictures.

For the curtains, I used bamboo that we had in our yard. Each year we thin it out and save the canes to dry. It was perfect for this. The curtains went up and the lace is vintage along with the hankies.

The hoop was from an old table cloth  I found that was completely destroyed except for the embroidery.

I love it! I can hang out, drink some tea, stitch, listening to old radio show and have the pups up to snuggle or just have some "me" time.

I stitched this up a as thank you for my Halloween in June partner. She totally spoiled me so I had to send her a little something! I decided to put a doily behind it to look more like spider webs.

I finished this morning. I have a hoopla wall known as Pamville, Pamland, Pamtopia-I posted it here. I wanted to add to it so I built a bakery shop. Now I need to fill it in with more little people and pets.  Cheesy

Set your phasers to stun.....Look at what Erica_tattoo has sent me!

First off. I love the Haunted Mansion (Disney). My husband and I have a HUGE collection. I also love the dolls that Erica makes so, she combined the two and made me the ballerina from the Haunted Mansion in DOD form.

If that wasn't enough. I got the cutest shadow puppets and this fabric. Holy hell on a poptart! We are framing it because it is so RAD!  It has all of my favorite movies. My hubby even has The Curse of the Werewolf tattooed on his arm.





Thank you so much, from the bottom on my heart! You made my whole year!  Kiss Kiss
