Maybe someday I will get my Bedroom Redo done {It’s only been 7 months, come on!}. Leigh @ Dirt Cheap Decor sent me an email about her great headboard — at the top of the post — and it got me thinking about my bedroom redo and so I have been going through my files. I thought I would share some of them with you. 
And if you have a great headboard idea, I’d love for you to share it with us in the comments.
Have a great night!

Make a Ruffly Pillow Cover out of an Old Bedskirt

21 Apr
When do you create? 
For me, my creative time hits in the dead of night
Once I get my kids in bed I start thinking about making projects. 
I know you guys are probably so tired of me talking about my never-ending bedroom redo. I am having a huge decorating dilemma with my bedroom redo — why am I having such a hard time with it?!?

 One specific problem is — there’s a little bench at the bottom of my bed that is metal and hard — it needed a cushion.

The other night in a flash of creative energy I decided to make a cushion for that bench. Of course all of the stores were closed, so I looked in my donation basket and saw an old bedskirt I was going to donate. You know the material that goes under your box springs? It white and I thought it might make great ruffles.

I had one of those body pillows left over from when I was pregnant, and it was just about the right size for the bench, so I made a ruffly pillow cover for that cushion. So this is my bench solution for now.
It’s kind of romantic and pretty!
This is what I did:
  1. Cut out the pillow cover front and back. For the front. measure the pillow and add 1 inch to all sides for the seams. For the back, take the same width as the front, but make two parts so you can slip the pillow through the opening.The bigger part’s length is 4 inches less than the front cover. And the second part is 8 inches in length. Sew the seams under that will be exposed on the envelope side of the pillow cover.
  2. Don’t sew the front and back together yet! You need to make the ruffles. Cut 2 inch width sections of material, double the length of the pillow. Using a long stitch so you can gather the thread. Make as many as you need to cover the front of the pillow.
  3. Once you have the ruffles sewn, pin them on the front of the pillow cover. Line them up so they are the same width apart and straight.
  4. Once they are all pinned, sew them onto the pillow cover and remove all the pins.
  5. Then you can attach the front and back of the pillow cover. Make sure the ruffles are facing inside the pillow cover so you can flip it inside out when you are done and the seams are inside.


Thanks for coming by. 
I appreciate you guys! 
Stop by tomorrow if you can for some fun news!
(no – I’m not pregnant…)

Nesting Place: I did it in 10 Minutes (bedroom) Finale!

20 Feb


On e of my favorite blogs, Nesting Place, has these great tutorials on how to transform your space in 10 minutes. Today she is having a finale and everyone is posting their 10 minute projects. I decided to do my bedroom.
Here are the steps she suggested:

****************

1. Make the bed: I found a pretty duvet at Target and added a bedskirt, shams and pillows from Pottery Barn. With coordinating sheets. It feels so wonderful! I love pillows (as you can see).


2. Clear the clutter. Our bedroom seems to be a catchall for toys, books, sippy cups and whatever else the kids are dragging around. So I cleared that out.


3. Keep it personal. Our room only had pictures of the kids. So I found one of the two of us and put it in a special spot!

4. Go wireless. I took the alarm clock off one of the nightstands. The tv I have behind an armoire in case we ever need it. She also suggests to bring the outdoors in so I brought some tulips in to freshen up the space!

5. Lighting. We installed little lights on the wall above the bed for latenight reading and to clear up space on the night stands. I love it!

6. A place to sit. I put a little bench at the end of the bed. It is a nice space to sit and put on my shoes in the morning. We also have a little sitting area in an alcove which is sunny in the afternoons and great for reading or taking a nap.

7. Create space. I have a tiny closet and needed more space, so we bought a unit from IKEA and installed it on one wall of the bedroom with a mirror in the middle. The mirror is great for checking my outfit before I leave each morning. I added a personal touch by buying some special knobs from Anthropologie to spif it up a little.

So that it! I love my bedroom! Thanks Nesting Place. Go over and check out the party and all of the great projects!!!
