before and after.....new bedding


Last Friday I picked up an old vintage twin sheet set from an estate sale with my friend Bianca.  It has become a weekly ritual and I look forward to it every week.  Without fail, I find so many amazing things for myself and for client projects.  This sheet set for example.  3 BUCKS.  It feels a little Missoni-esque doesn't it?  Not too feminine, not too masculine, perfect for my home.  Now this is not a total blow your mind DIY.  I get it.  It's not like I created a lamp or car from this fabric.  BUT, I did have some great Euro Shams sewn from it with plenty of cloth left to spare for custom pocketbooks, sachets, matching pillows, whatever.  So..... check out my new bedding:
Thanks to my m.i.l Jennifer, I have these new shams for our master.  They look awesome with our freshly painted charcoal walls and white bedding.  Our bedroom is in the midst of a complete overhaul and I will be sure to share with you the completed space when all is said and done.  It takes time people.  What do you think?  Pretty cool pattern huh?

Oh my, Michelle. I LOVE those pillows. The pattern is amazing. Can't wait to see your final product of a bedroom. I've been dying to redo ours for a couple of years and just cannot commit to a change. You've inspired me.

They turned out fabulous! Of course I am kicking myself for passing them up, but in my heart I know they were meant for you. I can't wait for Friday!

I love this- both the bedding {the price too!} and the weekly ritual.

As I told Bianca, if I'm ever in the neighborhood....... :)
