When I saw the button covered sofa entry for decorate with buttons, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299469.0 I immediatly scanned my room for something to cover!!
And seeing as my bed was the first thing i saw, i figured i'd go with it. So here it is!!!

I stuck all sorts on here, jewellery, shells, bottle tops, figurines, and of course, buttons.
There's still a couple of areas that need building up, they look a little bare!!

( sorry for the mess!!!)

Sorry about the blurry pics, im sure they fine when i took them!! Arg. I will try take some better ones!!!

A couple of bits have fallen off, so im working up the courage to get the glue gun out and stick them on again, as i am really good at burning myself!
Haha, I am planning to go up the posts, too. Its sooo addictive Cheesy
Thanks for looking!!!

That's awesome! I really like how eclectic it is. Did you sew anything on, or just hot glue?

Just hot glue, lots and lots!! Thanks Smiley Yeah, its really eclectic, my friend was helping, and she knelt on a drawing pin, so glued on a mighty max figure to get her own back on me!!!

Oh your poor fingers!!! How about using a pair of needlenose pliers or something to hold the trinket as you're adding the glue?

Glue gun burns are the worst...  Sad

Cute idea!

Just thinking about your poor burned fingers and thought that "super tacky glue" might be the solution.  Have you ever tried it?  Think that it's tacky enough to hold the item in place till the glue dries. and you wouldn't end up maimed.
