In real life, cdi9c goes by Catherine and can be found writing the delicious blog, B-School Studio, which she fills with inspiring sewing projects and clever quips.
Wanting to give a new look to a functional but lackluster brushed nickel bed, Catherine scored some discount outdoor fabric, and went about sewing what she describes as basically "a giant bag that you just size to fit your headboard." She used extra fabric to sew curtains that extend to the wall on either side of the bed— visually extending the headboard and providing extra storage. Double, double the genius.
Catherine's easy awesome bed frame redo was part of her guest room redo, which you can see more of over at B-School Studio.
