The wallhanging, probably, the headboard, only if I was completely re-vamping my bedroom.

Headboard lovely - price not too horrendous IMO

Wall hanging - not my cup of tea & wouldn't pay that much. I have a feeling I would get bored of it before too long & it is a bit dominating.
You could do your own - piece of canvas & pen on a string !

SoupDragon · 12/09/2005 15:55

Headboard nice, wall hanging hideous. IMHO anyway

nailpolish · 12/09/2005 15:56

I don't know about the head board, but I would for the wall hanging.

Fio2 · 12/09/2005 15:56

the wall hanging would be absolutely a peice of piss to make, HAVE A GO!

starlover · 12/09/2005 15:58

it isn't my kind of thing... but if it was something i reeeeeally loved then i would pay it

AuntyQuated · 12/09/2005 15:58

we have that headboard and i would say - 'don't get it'. had it since may and alraedy there is a 'grease mark' where dh's head must touch it and tbh he isn't particularly greasy.

this for my living room

aq do you have that specific headboard? are all headboards make of fake leather that easy to stain? or do you think its just that particular one?

it looks identical, but we got it from furnitureland . it was the same price too.
ours is a different colour... lighter. can email you pic if you want

Toothache · 12/09/2005 16:03

Not that pricy at all! I mean thats a big head board! And LOVE the artwork.

starlover · 12/09/2005 16:06

i wouldn't have thought that leather would stain that easily... suede/nubuck maybe...

nailpolish · 12/09/2005 16:06

its not real leather

OP posts:
AuntyQuated · 12/09/2005 16:07

no, ours is faux suade

nailpolish · 12/09/2005 16:07

b*gger it - im going to get the headboard

(and try and do the art myself and if its crap ill buy the wallhanging later)

OP posts:

Don't buy the hangings - go to some art school dgree shows and find some real art!

nailpolish · 12/09/2005 16:08

ah right AQ, i wouldnt risk suede, im going to get the fake leather one

OP posts:
starlover · 12/09/2005 16:08

even so... i just would imagine it has quite a thickish, shiny-ish, wipe clean-ish surface!
whereas nubuck or suede would soak up sweat/grease and stain...

expatinscotland · 12/09/2005 16:08

I really like the headboard. Go for it!

bonym · 12/09/2005 16:09

Both gorgeous and not too pricey imo but if you're concerned about the price I would just go for the headboard.

Fio2 · 12/09/2005 16:09

sorry i am just giggling to myself about how you would get a grease stain on the headboard the possibilities are endless...

nailpolish · 12/09/2005 16:10

has anyone seen dh's credit card anywhere?

OP posts:
nailpolish · 12/09/2005 16:10
