I have a confession, I don't like making my bed. In fact, I didn't make our bed everyday for a long time. Well times are changing and so am I, I've been making the bed and it's been so refreshing to walk into our bedroom! Granted I also have been changing things up a bit in there. I have a Simply Shabby Chic quilt, duvet cover and now a comforter all from Target. I bought the quilt five years ago and I still love it. Then two years ago for my birthday I asked for the duvet cover. We were sticking the quilt inside the duvet cover and that wasn't working so well. I didn't want a feather insert because of allergies so we went looking for a non-feathery insert and instead found a Shabby Chic comforter on clearance for $19! Have I ever mentioned how much I love Target clearance? For a while we were using the comforter inside the duvet but I love the comforter by itself. So here was my bed earlier today, a cute white comforter but not a lot else going on.
So I dug out the quilt, shoved it inside the duvet cover, threw it across the end of the bed and put pillows into the shams. It already looked much better but then I went out to my stash of old windows in the garage and brought one inside, cleaned it off, hung it over the bed, found my coffee filter wreath and a command hook and voila! Instant beautification!!!!
For a total of zero dollars, I transformed our bed from blah into wow! If your bed is got a case of the winter blues, maybe it's time to look around your house and see if you can dress your bed for a wow factor!
