A-frame 2.0 Master Bedroom

We’re back today with the last room update of the A-frame 2.0 and how I re-designed it for the new owners! The master bedroom has to be my favorite, so much so that I like it even better now over how I furnished it for ourselves. It might have something to do with dreamy bed, or the rug (ok it definitely does), but for sure it is the earthy but rich color palette.

We chose Portola’s Lime Wash finish in Etcetera for the walls, which is the perfect subtle blush with some depth, and paired it with the deep rust bedding from Flaneur (aka Cinnamon Stick). Apparently I really like a statement bed. This stunner, and the one I had in the room previously, pretty much make the room. Sweet dreams to Caroline and Jayden, I hope you enjoy your new pad!

and if that isn’t enough… I know the new crew has been working on finishing a couple of the spaces that we didn’t get to before we sold it. They are giving what we used as an old storage shed a big overhaul and they also fulfilled our pool dreams that we had for the space so stay tuned!

diy woven wall hanging

DIY woven wall hanging // sarah sherman samuelI updated a few things in our master bedroom recently since Archie thought it was a fun game to try and rip the black and white print we had above the bed off the wall. He finally succeeded and we were without anything up there for a while but then I got this idea, a tasseled, woven, wall art of an idea. You may have caught a few shots of it on instagram and I got a lot of inquiries about it, so today I’m sharing how I made it!

Supplies Needed:
– I used this rug as the base
White Jute Twine (I used 12 rolls)
– A small screwdriver (that is what I used but a crochet hook or an oversize needle would be way easier, I am always just grabbing what I have in mind and making things up as I go. Hindsight is a wonderful thing).
– A few small finish nails

Step 1: Make the tassels. SO MANY TASSELS (for tassel making instructions see this DIY post here). I made these ones longer, using a 9″ square to wrap the twine around, but the process is the same.

Step 2: Lay the rug out on the floor and draw yourself some guidelines with a pencil to follow.

Step 5: Move your hands to the underside of the rug and knot the two pieces of twine together, securing the tassel to the rug.

Step 6: Work your way up the rug making sure to stagger the tassels so they don’t line up and it looks a little random.

And that is it! With all the twine I had to buy, this wasn’t an inexpensive DIY but it is exactly what I had in mind and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I have to say, making that many tassels was quite therapeutic and attaching them was oddly extremely satisfying. Soooo…who wants one?!
