So, almost a year ago I wrote this post about how I was changing up the bedding in our master bedroom. It's taken me this long to get around to showing you what I came up with.
Now here's a little secret: I didn't buy new bedding. The only thing that changed is the pillows!
That's right- I am so lucky that my quilt is reversible, and flipping it over (as well as all the shams!) made a huge difference in the feel of the room!
In an ideal world, I could spend lots of money on the beautiful, most perfect bedding set. But I just couldn't justify it right now, so I "made it work". You'd be surprised how much you can do with the "stuff" you already have in your house.
Now for the real DIY. I bought two Euro Square pillows (the big ones in the back) on sale at Kohl's for 9.99 each. Then, rather than buy shams, I bought a pair of white curtain panels from Target for $19.99 and sewed them into pillow shams. I wanted flanged edges, so I followed this tutorial from Welcome to Heardmont. It's a great tutorial, so I'm not going to duplicate it here.
The white ruffled pilllow is an old project but I still love it!
I love the way the bed, and the room, looks now- it just makes me feel happy and peaceful. What do you think- good update?
