***I'm getting a lot of buzz about the art above my bed. I bought it from a very talented artist who is just lovely, check out her website here Antoine Art***
When we wake up in the morning, our bed looks like this:
And we feel like this:
We vacationed in Florida this spring and the hotel had "fake quilts" at the foot of the beds there. It looked like the quilt had been folded at the foot of the bed, but upon closer inspection, it was a coordinating panel meant to look that way. This was the answer to my summer bedding dilemma!
I found single drapery panel ($19.99, whoop whoop!) at TJ Maxx that coordinated with our bedding (any kind of fabric would do, I just stumbled upon this) and folded it lengthwise, right sides together. Then I laid a piece of quilt batting on top and pinned the three layers like this:
I just sewed a straight line around three edges, leaving one short end open, then turned the whole thing right side out and pressed.
I found some coordinating buttons and sewed them on for some contrast and to hold the batting in place rather than quilting it, and voila!
While I was in the decorating groove, I picked up some spray paint (Rustoleum Hammered Dark Bronze)and a Target lampshade and made over our bedroom lamps:
The big guy sat on the edge of the bed and said "This metal lamp is so cool, I love the shape! Was it expensive? Does it turn on the same as my old lamp?" Silly silly man...
