A Midsummer Night`s Dream

Every year there is one day in the spring, when it grabs me suddenly and I know I have to decorate my balcony new to welcome the summer. Immediately I stop everything else and dont rest until my balcony is finished. This year I am very late with my balcony makeover but the summer in Hamburg isnt really inspiring so far. Nevertheless, I got down to work and I even almost managed to ignore the surprised glances of my neighbors who observed me setting up a bed on my balcony while wearing warm clothes and a jacket.
As you can see, I've used a few of my favorite DIY ideas and diligent readers of my blog probably already know a few of these old friends...
An old friend from last summer is my pallet wall garden.
Because I constantly forget to water my flowers, I like to use water dispensers.
The heart of my balcony is a bed on pallets.
It took less than two minutes, until my cat begun to spread black cat hair on the new bed.
I used a cut leather belt to hold the curtains back.
I used a rag rug to sew this cushion.
For the small wall above the bed, I decided to create some wall art with a few of my bauble vases and some of my coasters.
Finally I've added a rag rug for comfort on the floor.
