The "going to take forever bedroom makeover" has a few new additions. I think a little pop of color is going to be a big bonus for this room. I was hoping with it being a neutral background (beige/black/white) that I could use tons of different colors and I think I can.
I've also been busy sewing adding a little more black and white stripes too. Stay tuned for more step by step tutorials.
You all asked for an update on the "Third Time Is Charm" comforter. Well, it went back too. There were several problems, first - too small to cover the sides of the mattress - second it just looked like any ordinary quilt, so for $150 I can buy a big enough quilt to cover the bed. (I am currently cheating using a queen size matlesse blanket I've had for years) Now I am on to #4. I saw a coverlet that I really liked at Penny's Discount Store, so I have ordered it in king, it should be here in a few days. Hopefully this one is a keeper. At any rate for just $100 I think this one will stay. #hopefully
P.S. I just came back from Penny's and the coverlet is absolutely perfect. It is a quilted polished cotton. Just enough sheen to look pretty, but not enough to grab your attention. Yay!!!!!! We have a winner and can you believe it was the cheapest thing I tried. $109 for king with 2 shams.
In the meantime, don't forget to mark your calendars for the
