A little sneaky peaky

It's coming together! 
I know it looks a little dramatic, but the other fabrics white and sea foamy blue are going to temper the red canopy.
 YA'LL!

I know I should be getting my kids ready for bed right now, but instead I am blogging...you know why?  Well I will tell you.  I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT E's Room!  It is all starting to come together.  This morning it was all in my head.  I vowed to try to use what I had, and not go over board. 

Earlier today this is how my studio looked....

All of the fabric that will be E's Room.
I was playing around with fabrics etc...My little client really wants a crown/canopy pelmet above her bed.  And being the obliging designer that I am....I went out in search.

I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a french pelmet...and today was the day.  I stopped by a "steak sale" (that is what my sweet kids call them, B is still trying to figure out where all the steak is:)  Ha!

Anyhoo, it was the 3rd day of a local estate sale, (the Estate Liquidators of SC, they are awesome and always have great things....they even have some exciting things happening that I can't divulge right now...very soon my friends!)  I digress.... 50% off and I came across this....$2!

Ugly now....but sprayed Red...LOVERLY!
I had my eye on one at a local antique store, but it was $50 and I KNEW I would find one sooner or later for cheaper....so today was my day!  I mean, the world is working in this designers favor...because if I hadn't found it the bed would still have all that fabric on it.

So, I got to sewing and it is ALMOST done.  I need my handyman husband, and the spray paint is taking FOREVER to dry in this humidity, but fingers crossed it will be up tomorrow.

Here is some of my inspiration for the room....I blogged about it here.(back in FEBRUARY, as  you can see some things have changed.)

Sneaky peaky is right! What a fresh, bold, yet darling color combination--perfect for the little client at hand.
