My New Bed


I did this a few days ago but am finally posting it. My sister had an extra bed set given to her and didn't need it so gave it to me. It's from IKEA she says and I love it. I didn't have one so am happy to get it. What better reason to make a journal page?

I did this straight with the pen, no pencil so the angles are a bit off but I knew if I putsied around it would never get done. I'm happy with how it turned out.

Two notes: The lamp was a cheap one I had and painted to go with my room's furniture and it is always wonky so I drew it that way. Second, the white stand next to my bed holds a lot of my smaller papers and is there instead of a regular nightstand because I've run out of room for supply storage. Something had to go and it was not going to be my art supplies!

  4. This is such a happy sketch - celebrating your new bed. A bedroom is a haven and the value of good sleep is underestimated. Sweet dreams! :-)
