We love our Beddy’s bedding

Over the past few weeks I’ve shown you guys my son’s and daughter’s bedrooms. They both are sporting some new super cute bedding. I promised to give you more details about the bedding, so today I’m doing just that!

Both of these bedding sets are called Beddy’s

Before I get too deep into this post, I want to be very clear… I paid for both of these bedding sets. I purchased them through the website like any other person would, and I paid full price for them.

I was introduced to Beddy’s from a few other blogs who wrote posts about them. As soon as I first saw them, I knew I wanted to get each of my kids a Beddy’s bedding set. The basic gist of the bedding is that it is n entire bedding set in one – fitted sheet and blanket. The bedding fits on in one piece like a fitted sheet, and then the blanket zips up both sides like a sleeping bag.

I was drawn to the bedding for a few different reasons, mainly that they are so easy for my kids to make their beds each morning – you literally just zip it right up, and also because of the minky blanket – my kids love super soft blankets and have been using “fuzzy blankets” for years in lieu of a top sheet.

Washing these sets is so easy also. The top blanket zips completely off and you wash and dry the bedding like you would any other bedding.

I’ve seen a few other bedding sites selling zip up bedding but they have all looked kind of cheesy. I like the Beddy’s because it looks classy and is made from really durable and thick fabric. The quality is top-notch.

After we received the two bedding sets in the mail and tried them out for a few days, the kids LOVE them. In fact, I decided I wanted a 3rd set for our queen sized guest bed:

I do want to say right here that I did receive this bedding set free from Beddy’s. I emailed them after trying out our two kids’ sets and told them I how much I loved them. I explained that I was a blogger and was going to be writing a blog post about the bedding, and asked if they had any type of affiliate program I could sign up for to include in my blog post. They promptly wrote back and apologized for not having any type of affiliate program, but after checking out my blog wondered if they could send me a queen sized bedding set instead of an affiliate link. So, in the end, I purchased two full sized bedding sets myself, and ended up getting a 3rd set free.

(I still have to paint the guest room a light tan, so the bedding will look even better once the walls are lightened up.)

In addition to the bedding, you can also purchase bed skirts and pillow sets.

Travis’s bedding is Game On.

Kinsey’s bedding is Ooh La Lavender.

The guest room bedding is Modern Gray Ruffles.

We have been really impressed with the excellent quality of the bedding. Overall I am very impressed. Obviously I love them or I wouldn’t have ended up with three sets in my house! If you have any questions I’ll try to answer them in the comments below.

You can check out Beddy’s through their website, facebook, instagram, pinterest, and twitter.

BHG Dining Room Table Review (it’s not great)

Okay, so let’s talk about this table.

I’m not going to beat around the bush here, the table is from Wal-Mart. Yes, Wal-Mart. I know, I can’t believe it either. It does have one redeeming quality though – it’s a Better Homes and Gardens brand, called Providence, which makes it a tiny bit more legit I suppose.

I originally bought this table for the kitchen but it was too big (should have measured!) so it became the dining table by default. We needed furniture for the entire house and had only a couple days to buy it all. We headed to IKEA for almost everything, but I didn’t want only IKEA so I found this cute table at Wal-Mart for only $500 for the solid wood table and 4 tufted chairs (we purchased 2 additional chairs). The table I actually want is like 2k for just the table itself, so this one will hold us over while I save for years for the other one.

Okay, so table review? The table so far has been great. It is solid and heavy and I don’t feel like it’s going to collapse on me when I use it. The chairs though? Terrible. Awful. DON’T BUY THEM. First off, they are not comfortable. You sink so far into them that you can feel the wooden seat frame. Just not comfortable at all. And secondly, we all know you shouldn’t lean back in your chairs. But we all do it anyway. So far, in about 8 weeks of owning these chairs, we have *almost* broke two of them. Almost? Well, they haven’t totally split in two because as we were leaning back in them and heard loud cracking and destabilizing of the chairs, we quickly put them back on all 4s and have been too scared to lean back in them again. They will probably be completely broken within a few months. That’s my prediction.

In fact, now that I’m rambling on about the terrible quality of this extremely inexpensive Wal-Mart furniture (gee, shouldn’t that have been a big red flag?), I’m now wondering what the return policy on this set is because I might be able to get my money back. The only problem is, the set is huge and heavy, I threw all the packaging away, and I’ll have to drag it all into the store fully assembled to even attempt to return it? Wow, sounds like the most fun day of my life.

So, overall, the table itself is pretty good considering you got it + 4 chairs for $500. The chairs though? Don’t do it.

How to easily replace door hinges

After only a few weeks of living in the new house, I had HAD IT with the door that goes from the laundry room into the garage. We use this door like 20 thousand times a day, and the door had self-closing hinges.

These door hinges are seriously the most annoying door hinges in the history of ever. Okay, okay, I’m being a little dramatic, but seriously, I hate them. Every time I’d quickly run into the garage to grab something, the door would slam itself shut behind me. Seriously drove me batty.

We tried propping the door open for a week or so but it was still so irritating. Also, the door is filthy and needs to be painted. Yuck.

So of course I bought new hinges and replaced them! I purchased some basic hinges made for exterior doors.

Replacing door hinges is super easy. It doesn’t matter if you are doing external or internal doors, you can swap them out really easily.

The easiest way is to replace one hinge at a time. You don’t need to take the whole door down, just remove one hinge and replace it with a new one, then do the next one, and finally swap out the final one.

This took me about 10 minutes. Not only do I have a door that actually stays open now, I also have chrome hardware instead of the gold. I’ll be replacing all the hardware in the house over time so eventually it’s all chrome.

Obviously this is a personal preference for me. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who love having the door self-close. It is definitely useful to have the door close by itself if you have pets or kids who never close doors! But for us, we like choosing to leave the door open if we want to.

We are loving not having the door slam in our face. And I really love chrome!

Seriously, that’s how easy it is to replace hinges. No door removal or anything. Such a simple and inexpensive update to a dated home.
