fabric hunt

I decided, with the help of my friend Christina, to get a new bed made rather than buying it.  It was much more cost effective and she has this guy who is awesome at upholstery.  

I knew I was opening a can of worms with choosing fabric, but I figured I could probably knock it out quick. 

This is what the camera roll in my phone looked like in February. 

Except a whole slew more pictures.

Fabric, fabric and more fabric.  

That one up there was the winner.

I'll post the bed as soon as I get it finished.  I love how it turned out.


  1. Would you be willing to share your resources? We're in Phoenix and are on a new bed hunt and getting one made sounds ideal!!

  2. Oh my goodness, I just finally saw this about your bed being custom made. I'm so sorry that I kept asking!! I hang on every word on your home blog (and regular blog for that matter, haha), so I don't know how I missed this!! I came back to look at your couches closely to see if you shared the source there, and just noticed this whole post being about your BED!! I am now on Thrives website, and glad you gave it a good referral! They have an awesome RH sofa knockoff!!! :) Thanks Shawni (sorry to keep pestering you about that bed!!) : \
