What do you get when you mix two sisters, four kids, a bottle of wine and a bag of Starburst jelly beans?
You get the most amazing bedroom makeover ever.
Remember my bedroom inspiration post a few weeks ago?
I really wanted my room to look something like Miss Mustard Seed's guest room:
Molly came to visit and we set to work making drop cloth pillows that were inspired by all of the feedsack style pillows that you see in blogland and, of course, Pottery Barn:
I'm pretty sure I like ours better. As in, can I hang in my room all day?
Take a look.
We made two Euro size pillows with stripes.
Then we added a smaller pillow with my last name initial "B".
Seriously, admit it. They really are pretty cute. The little red pillow is tied with creamy grosgrain ribbon. We sewed that one a little bit differently than the others. That tutorial will come shortly. It's shockingly easy.
We initially set out to really, truly mimic the feedsack and have faded stripes but as we got to painting, we decided we wanted a stronger statement so we painted the stripes on pretty heavily.
We used a super easy pillow tutorial from Lemon Tree Creations. Takes all of 10 minutes. It would be a great beginner sewer project.
Here is the bed layered up. There's a creamy white Pottery Barn duvet under there. The red quilt is Pottery Barn outlet from a few years back.
The bird prints were handed down from the Buchanan's. The mirror was picked off the trash here in Longmeadow (rather shamelessly by my mother).
This is my side of the bed. NOT.
So sweet on my grandmothers red chair. Have I mentioned yet that red is my favorite color?
Tutorials for the pillows to follow soon.
In the meantime, tell me, what would make your bedroom more inviting to you?
