Blood, sweat, and tears went into this room makeover. No really... I think I cried somewhere between the orange and white bedspreads.
Hey look... the room got messy again. Where are the little trolls that keep making a mess in this room?
After several stores and 4 hours of searching on two separate days, I came home with this quilt. I loved it! Put it on the bed, and... there were no pillow shams to match.
Yup... I fell for it. I looked at the picture rather than the words under the picture that said "quilt" with no mention of pillow shams. So the next day I went back to the store, searched high and low, and found one pillow sham.
Isn't that sweet?
So I went out searching again.
I'll get back to that in a bit, but please take notice of this pillow:
In Josh's words, it's the ugliest thing he's ever seen.
To me? Oh my goodness... I'm in love! Not sure why, exactly, but I love it!
This was the point where our cat became genuinely concerned about my well-being.
You know what's really hard to get a picture of? And orange (or red, for that matter) quilt. The color will vary depending on the monitor, but it was a pretty burnt orange color. I liked the design, too.
But... no pillow shams to match. And I have a complex about that right now.
So.... back to the search.
I took one look at this and fell in love. Bought the wrong size and went running back to the store at 9:30pm to exchange it.
Ellie loved it too! This is right before I swatted her into the hallway. No animals allowed in here from now on:
Ladies and gents (okay, so it's just the ladies by this point, I'm sure), this was on my bucket list. Things to do before I die: have a "white" bed. White sheets, white bedspread, etc.
Don't worry, there are other, more exciting things on my list as well.
