Guest Bedroom Makeover
Day 10: Bedding
**Note: This is part of a 12-step bedroom makeover series. Find the previous steps at the bottom of this post.**
You guys. For some reason, I have been dragging. my. feet. over doing this duvet cover. I don't know why. Just getting close to the end of things here, and this was one of the last gigs, and I have just been feeling super duper lazy lately.
What can I say, January does that to me.
Thus, it is with great pleasure (and relief) that I present to you today...the guest bedroom bedding!
Quite possibly the easiest task of them all, ironically enough. I had some old white curtains and sewed them into a duvet cover. Because the curtains were thick and of high quality fabric but were just a few inches too short to ever be curtains around here again..
Then I got a yard of fabric from my go-to online fabric store (Premier Prints Towers in Sherbet/Soft Grey), cut it carefully into strips, and sewed it on as a Greek key trim. Same for the pillowcases.
It's super simple bedding, which happens to be my favorite, both aesthetically and pragmatically. Not that a zillion layers of soft gushy throw pillows isn't beautiful in its own way. Just, y'know, not for me. (And, now, not for my guests. Heh.)
That being said, I still need to add trim to the bedskirt. I'm thinking navy velvet would be pretty, but there's already so much blue going on. Hmmm...
Come back for Day 11: Throw Pillow. Because (a) it's in these pics, and you're dying to know how to sew one of your own, or (b) you're just a nice person. Either/or.
