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 … [Read more...]

A mini master makeover (bedding & curtains in the master bedroom)

Do you ever go through phases with decorating or crafting or whatever? It's like I get tunnel vision or something. I'll get on a DIY tangent, or a crafting tangent, or a decorating tangent. Lately I've been on a curtains tangent. And a sprucing-up-the-place tangent. I haven't done many huge DIY projects or crafting lately. I've been focusing on just tying up loose ends and sprucing up the place so it feels more cohesive and livable. I just blew through a master bedroom tangent, in part thanks to my blogging-turned-in-real-life friend Jenn. Jenn is literally the bomb dot com. She texted me a … [Read more...]

I’ve been tinkering in the daughter’s room again

So, I've been working on my daughter's room for about 5 months now. I have a full mood board my head, it just takes me awhile. I like to take my time and make well-thought-out decisions. I'm sure that is driving you nuts! Get it done already, am I right?! Anyway, here's her most recent room picture: It's from my PBTeen Inspired Bedding Week where I showed you how to make all this bedding for a fraction of what PBTeen charges. Well, I guess I'm a crappy blogger because I have ZERO zoomed out pictures of her room with her new bedding. So picture her new bed and bedding in place … [Read more...]

The boy is seeing stripes {PB knock off boy bedding}

There's been a hitch in Ben's crazy post (as mentioned here). Isn't that always the case? You announce something beforehand and it blows up in your face? Hopefully I'll have that post out within a day or two. But for now, I'll show you the boy's new bedding. I've been working on his room a little here and there (between K's room and the laundry room). Honestly, I'd love to just start a room and then actually finish it before starting on another project, but I just can't help myself. It's like I need 10 different things going on at once. That way I'll never get bored with just … [Read more...]

How to layer a bed + a full source list {Bedding Week}

Welcome to another installment of... Today I'm going to share some quick tips about bedding. Let's start with making a bed. I'm sure there are like 20 billion ways to layer a bed. This is just how *I* do it. First I start off with my gear: I bought sheets from Wal-Mart for both my kids' beds. I altered my daughter's to look like ones at PBTeen. I also bought some of these vinyl mattress covers. These are an inexpensive way to protect your mattress from accidents (bed wetting and barfing included). Each kid also has a mattress pad on their bed for more … [Read more...]

Well hey hey hey my friends! I hope you had a smashing weekend! I'm back today to show you the bedding progress I've made on my darling daughter K's room.

Last week I showed you the new bed we got for K: I LOVE this bed! Seriously. I'm smitten. Now it's time to get some pretty bedding to go along with the pretty new bed. I searched for bedding for a few months. I wanted to find … [Read more...]
