Curtain Call
Thank you for this article. I love our dining room which opens onto our living room/music room. In the afternoons and evenings my elderly mother sits in the living room. I have started using the dining room as an office for two reasons. One, I like working there and 2, my custom window treatment workroom in my bonus room over the garage is crammed, so there is not enough space there. What I don't like is the fact that my dining room is always full of my work stuff and looks messy. Plus, we eat in there. So I am trying to find ways to make these two rooms multifunctional. I need a way to store my work stuff so that it isn't taking over. Am open to suggestions. I'll probably look for a desk that will fit into a corner of the living room where I can put everything when I'm not working.

Thank you. The bracket was custom fabricated by a local metal place. I think it was roughly $70 for both. No special name, just bring in this ideabook and show the worker the photo. We were told it will hold up to 7000 pounds :) Trickiest part was getting the angle right. The rope diameter is 1 ½". I went with the synthetic manilla to avoid shrinkage issues with the natural fibers. Each season the bed sinks a little bit so we prop it up on chairs, untie and then retie the knots up a few inches, then it settles again by the next year.

If you go to this ideabook, in the comment section, I already posted a few photos of the DIY pillow project. I believe you can find similar options on etsy.
