Have you ever been on the hunt for the perfect bedding to complete your room? Well I was and lucky for me inspiration struck. It all started when I saw a little bag and Bath and Body Works. The metallic colors of champagne, gold and chrome instantly made me fall in love. I knew these where the colors I wanted. But there was nothing anywhere to realize my vision. I actually purchased and brought home a large bedding set but it didn’t look right and did not capture my vision. I knew I had to make it. So off I went to the fabric store. I looked and looked but everything was a compromise.
I stopped looking and then a few months later I was shopping at Target down the Christmas clearance aisle. And there it was…the perfect damask fabric in the exact color I wanted. But it was a table cloth! That is when I was inspired to buy two rectangular shapes and one square (that is what they had left). The price was cheap and being a table cloth I knew it would wash up like a dream. The fabric was nice and soft to the touch and looked regal. Perfect for my bedroom!
The transformation was simple. I took both rectangles and cut one down the middle long ways. I then sewed half on one side and half on the other side. To make it looked finished I opened up the hem and put stitching on either side of the seam, which would run down each side of my queen size bed perfectly. This also works for a King size bed (I used it on our King before we moved), the stitching makes a statement down the top of each quarter of the bed.
The soft pile grey throw at the bottom of my bed was also transformed in a similar way from two Christmas throw blankets. The pillow shams were made from the square table cloth and I even have extra fabric if I ever want to make throw pillows to match.
Total cost to make my new bed set? Under $30. Luv!!!
