Happy New Year!
Now that the holidays are over, I find myself wanting to spruce up my "non-holiday" decor. But, alas, my budget is decidedly "non-holiday" as well. Here's a few little things I've managed to do in the master bedroom on a shoestring budget!
First of all, I headed to Goodwill. Before you get all grossed out and think I am sleeping on Goodwill-sheets, take a look at my new dust ruffle! Our bed has an 18-inch drop, which is more expensive to buy in a dust ruffle. Add to that a strange configuration under the bed that means I would have to take scissors to my brand-spankin'-new dust ruffle to make it fit around the posts. I don't think so.
Instead I went to Goodwill and found a queen-sized flat sheet in a chocolate brown. I have no fear about taking my scissors to something I spend $3 on. I just cut the whole sheet in half and then smushed the raw edge up underneath the mattress. Instant dust ruffle!
I also had some extra material left over from when I made these curtains. A little time in front of the sewing machine was all I needed to come up with new cases for my Euro pillows.
When it came to sealing the pillowcases, I was way over the idea of putting in a zipper. Instead I just hand-sewed a little grosgrain ribbon to each side and then tied a pretty bow. I love it!
