Make a horse-loverís dream come true with a shed-like attic bed and equine friezes for a blue-ribbon bedroom. Hereís Christmas Carnivals offering information on Christmas A Stable Environment. For this weekend project youíll need: poster, wood, salvaged hardware, rope, paint, fabric, roofing tin, blanket and leather.
Create a mural, by tracing an enlarged horse poster onto the wall and painting the details. Build the loft bed from sawn oak, strand board, and retrieved hardware. The stall bars should fit into strips of wood. Seam a duvet cover using horse-themed fabric and edge the board under the mattress with leather. Under the bed, a bench, bulletin board, and light, can serve as a silent legroom where your child can play.
Screw old roofing tin to the eaves over the bed. Cover the panels on the existing bedroom and closet doors and paint them white X for a barn door look. Add painted decorative lumber tablets. For the window, hang hickory saplings using leather loops and cut pieces from an Indian-print saddle blanket and tie to the branches. Add a sawhorse, covered with a large stuffed horse, and top it with a pad and saddle. A cabinet can display toy horses. Learn all about Christmas A Stable Environment with
