OK, I need to STOP

I just had to try a couple more combinations with all the linens I am finding for the guest bedroom.  So here are two more.

The comforter reverses to the windowpane plaid, so I had to try it with the red vine print dust ruffle.


 A polka dot pillow is the exact same shade of red.  I found this pretty fabric in the $1 bin.  Perfect color match to the vine dust ruffle.


 Now this looks rather masculine to me. This would work when the grandsons stay over, they aren't into flowers and fluff.


 Turn the comforter back over to the toile side and still leave the red print.  I love the way the french mix a ton of fabrics and I love to mix them as well, so the more the merrier.


 The polka dot mixed with the toile and vine print.


 The sun is so bright, it is hard to see, but this really is kind of nice. ( I have decided I like this best of all with the toile.)  Well, I can just play to my hearts content.


The toile is so pretty with just the plain dust ruffle, however for $3.99, I love the addition of the red vine print. It can go with a ton of things.  I also have a matlesse white cover.  Ok, I won't put that on right now.

I don't normally change my bedding so often, but with all these super finds and at these prices, I am having a ball.  You can see the original Brown and Red here and how I put the room together for $49.
Cost so far for all the bedding changes - - -Everything came from Goodwill
3 dust ruffles at $3.99 each (muslin - off white eyelet - red vine)
Brown comforter $10 (1/2 price day)
Toile comforter $18.62 (25% off day)

  3. Love that red vine dust ruffle, Marty! I can't believe the great linens you have found. I did a quick scan at Goodwill and Salvation Army the other did and didn't see anything as nice.

  8. I love both looks too, and I agree with Ceekay, if you fold down the comforter then you have three looks altogether.
    Shams would also be nice in the red vine fabric. Very pretty indeed! Have fun playing with fabrics!

  12. Oh Sweet Linens...the toile comforter does it for me. I love it with the ruffle. I recently got a matelasse spread and shams from a designers yard sale for a song new in the package and they were made in Poland. I did not need them but could not pass them by. hugs, olive

  13. Marty, All of the items look wonderful. I'm especially fond of the windowpane comforter with the hunt scene over the bed. Great guest room!

  14. Hello, my Goodwill buddy! I just wanted to tell you I love the black and red toiles together, they are very french and I love to see someone else playing with all the good deals that GW has. I've fluffed up my bedroom look recently from GW with bedding, etc and I've redone my room twice for under $20.00 each time. Love your new red pillow too. You are so talented! Judy

  18. I LOVE IT Marty!
    I don't think it's masculine ALTHOUGH they would love it. BUT anytime HORSES are involved, LADIES LOVE IT!
    If you could find a SLEEPING FOX pillow for the bed "It would be DARLING"...and...give the poor little guy a BREAK and hideaway from the HUNT,hehe!
    Have a FUN WEEK,
    Big Hugs,
