So here is the inspiration. Can you see it? Look very carefully behind this bed and you can barely see the tulle that cascades from the ceiling behind the headboard. It is a combination of soft tulle and white lights...quite beautiful! This is that store I told you about several posts ago, As For Me and My House in Pawleys Island. I could move into this place and live there for the rest of my life. It is a lovely store!So I came home and looked at the pile of unused trim that we have stacked in the corner of our room that is under construction. I picked out a few pieces and oh so sweetly asked the cute carpenter if he would mind whipping up a little cornice board type thing for me. He rolled his eyes, but he loves me, so he did it.I painted them in about 15 minutes and hung them the next day. I used tension rods for window treatments inside the cornice boards to hold the tulle and lights. I love tulle because you just cut it, NO sewing! The lights behind the tulle add a girly, princess touch. The girls (especially Caroline) are thrilled!
