Alright, fine. So I have some issues. I (again) had full intentions of making you believe that my bedding obsession was only in the master bedroom. But then Pottery Barn Outlet happened, and the whole plan went to heck.
I’ve been trying to “summer-ize” my son’s bedroom for a year, and I kept finding stuff that was just too darn expensive. This is what I have determined about Pottery Barn–their stuff looks a LOT better in person. Looking at this quilt set, I wasn’t overly in love. I mean, I like it, but I wouldn’t have looked into it.
But…then I found these shams for $6.00 each (yup, you read that right), and I fell in the love with the chambray blue! How perfectly summer is that?!
I think it looks quite different from the catalog picture, so I’m glad I found it–I love you Pottery Barn! The problem is that the quilt is still $120.00–I hate you Pottery Barn!
My son has navy blue corduroy curtains, and corduroy throw pillows. That, combined with the flip side of the down comforter you see (a darker plaid), is pretty winter-y. Because I’m sooo good at sewing pillows, I bought some cheap fabric ($1.47/yard) and made some new covers for the inserts I already had. Don’t you dare look closely at these. I’m sure they’re crooked, and they don’t have any trim yet.
Because I am dumb, I used to make all these pillow covers that would sew shut. Makes sense, right? Well, now that I have about 36 throw pillows around my house, I have decided to make covers that are removeable! Well, hello! Angela has a great tutorial on her site that I used, and I haven’t looked back since! Watch out, slipcover world, I’m comin’ at ya with reckless abandon!
