A Chevron bed-head?


I’m up for a challenge. I think it’s time I made something.  It’s been a while between drinks…

So, we’re renting at the mo, so I can’t paint or bash stuff into the walls, but I can definitely sand furniture, make bed-heads and move stuff around. I have a great sideboard that I will sand up in  the next few weeks. Yep, I’ll share the before and afters.

Remember how I bought a new bed? Well, the intention was to make a bed-head for it. I’ve done one before, so I’m pretty sure I can do it again. BUT this could be hard because I was thinking of doing a chevron fabric. The zig zags could pose to be tricky dicky.

It’s only fabric, right? I can always change it if I stuff it up.

Now, the question for my lovely readers is…

which colour?

Which chevron colour for a bed-head
 Pale Pink

I’d love it if you voted. It will be fun to see what you think. Oh, and don’t forget to tell me which one you voted for, and why!

Today I am on the hunt for a new white Super King doona cover. I’ve tried hundreds (well, not hundreds, you know I love to over-exaggerate things) of online stores, so maybe I’ll head to the shops.

The unpacking is pretty much done and I need an escape, so why not go shopping for new stuff! 😉

    Hi Katrina. Did you try Moss River? Best quality white linen and they do super king and custom too. Not sure if their sales’s still on…. they were 50% off!

    For me, it was toss up between the aqua and lime green. But seeings as aqua is the “it” colour right now everywhere, I went with the green. But I reckon the black & white would be impressive too.

    Aqua is definately the hit colour at the moment but I voted for pale pink. Just for something different. You could easily amp it up with some bold accents, black and white. What about with navy? 🙂

  • Tinkster

    I was just telling my husband thats what I want to do last night, I think I’m going to get black and white

  • Penny

    I chose the black. I am about to update a piece of furniture as well. Tempted to turn it from timber to gloss black

  • Catheryn Walker

    I voted Aqua. I just really love Aqua at the moment.

  • Holly

    I voted aqua, i would love to have pale pink or fushia but my fiancee would complain of it being too girly (so i took that into consideration, haha)

  • Penny

    I did aqua too, although I am into all things coral and orange at the moment. My mother in law bought me some orange tea cups for Christmas and now I want to redecorate the whole house around them!

    I love this idea Katrina! I loved the zig-zag Blog header you had a while back too! I voted for aqua, I’m loving it at the moment! I think its a fresh colour and very in right now!
    Whatever colour you choose will look fab I’m sure! 🙂

    How fun this new project will be for your Katrina, and I’m sure it will turn our beautifully!
    I voted for the yellow – only because I think it would look fantastic with some dark, contrasting hues in the bed linen you use – black accent pieces throughout the room (lamps, bedside table accessories etc.) and yellow, black and grey always look fab together – you could find some amazing cushions or find some fabric online to make some great cushions yourself!
    Good luck! Can’t wait to see the end result 🙂

    I voted for fuschia, I am absolutely in love with the colour at the moment, whether it is for clothes, nail polish, flower petals, and I’d definitely love as a bed-head.

    Looking forward to seeing what you create no matter what the colour.

    I voted for the Black. Mainly because it is a classy and timeless colour. Plus, for any easy change you can switch up the doona cover any time and everything will match. Not as easy with a bright colour. Plus the husband would probably appreciate it too!

  • Bec

    Hi Katrina, I am striving for lots of colour in my home this year so I have chosen green for you. Can’t wait to see how it all goes! Please let us know how you go with the Super King linen, I have a super king bed and find it hard to find much xx

  • Shayne

    I voted for Aqua or black. I love fuchia too, but thought if it’s for hubby and wife i’d go a colour that wasn’t too feminine. I love black & white & aqua together!!

  • brismod

    I chose black. Strong and bold and timeless. xx
