Big Boy Bedding

Slowly but surely the baby’s big boy room is coming together!!  Burlap and checks and velvet and monograms abound…
September 2012 340 copy
While Mother was here she was a doll to help me out making burlap euro shams and buffalo check standard shams.  When I had the chair reupholstered I also had this heinous denim bolster covered in the velvet.  With free shipping it was much cheaper than any of the other bolster pillow form of this size that I found.
  • I always order my burlap from Online Fabric Store.  I generally get enough to qualify for free shipping.
  • The velvet fabric is Como Gris from Calico Corners.
  • The buffalo check is Berta Ruta from Ikea (ringing up at under $9 a yard!)
  • The sheet set is from Pottery Barn in Sandalwood.
Just a few more to-dos and the room will be ready for little one!

  13. Palm beach - My closets and stuff go so out of hand in the last house that when we moved I donated an insane amount of things. I promised myself to only buy new things that I truly love and have a definite place for. I also realized that I was buying all sorts of clothes that were a good deal but I never ended up wearing - so I vowed to buy one article of clothing that I love even if it costs the same as 5 things I would have worn once and bought just because they were cheap. So, I guess my advise would be to do one huge binge of things and get organized. Then keep up with it by not getting things you don't really need and always evaluating what you have in the closet. I probably donate something every month - clothes, toys or decorative items I'm not using. Hope that helps :-)
