I recently made over my bed and I am so excited about it.
I am so excited to have a full – puddled – linen looking bed skirt. The secret is that the fabric is not even linen. I think it is 100% cotton but I don’t even know for sure because I got it at a discount fabric store (Home Fabrics) for $3 a yard AND it is the backside of the fabric.
After I washed it in hot water it just got nubbier. Yum. Is that a word? nubbier?
Do you want to see the right side of the fabric? I recovered this chair in it. Be patient with my weird exposures…I am still learning how to use my new camera.
Then I found some more nubby white cotton in my fabric stash and had big 28” pillows made with a 1 1/2” ruffle.
I already had the white quilt and duvet (which needs a cover…one day) as well as the Pottery Barn headboard (see my post about that here). Everything has been pre-washed in hot water which means no dry cleaning for me.
Isn’t that great texture!
I didn’t quite have enough fabric for the back side of the pillows so I found a different fabric for the back. Can you see the subtle paisley print on the other side (below)?
I probably won’t keep all four grain sack pillows on my bed. I will need to mix in some other pillows…but I wanted to show them to you because I bought a whole bunch at market (they were a steal) and I am going to be offering them to my readers. Aren’t they great?
The best thing about a full-linen-puddled bed skirt is that it looks glamorous even when the bed isn’t made. It’s kind of like a movie star with messy hair!
