When we first moved into our house about 3 years ago, we were gifted with my Dad's bedroom furniture which happened to be my grandparents furniture that they recived as a wedding gift back in the dinosaur era. It's actually fairly "modern" for older furniture, and we have plans to restain the cherry finish.
I had to act quickly because we were gifted a king sized bed. Whoo hoo and Boo hoo all at the same time. Whoo that we have more space, boo hoo that I had to now get bedding. 1) Bedding is insanely expensive for a piece of cotton and 2) Jeff and I don't have the same style when it comes to bedding.
So, I quickly ran to Macy's for a bed in a bag which was awful, but it got sheets and a comforter on the bed. Fast forward 3 years later and 1 washing of the comforter later, we have a big hole and pilling underneath the bedspread. Gross. So, I've been looking for a compromise. We will be redecorating and painting this fall and removing the lovely wall border with tassles. Yes, it's bad. I have been looking for a mix of floral and stripes to appease Jeff. I felt I had pick out some real winners and then I got the veto.
Well, yesterday Target had a Black Friday summer sale and all of the Liberty of London collection was on super sale. So, I started poking about and found a fantastic comforter/sham set with free shippping. I ran it by Jeff and approved. What the heck! I think it's super girly - but he approved. No complaints from me.
Now I'll have to go on the quest to see what I can do to match curtains, new sheets and a bedskirt. It's never ending. I may just hold onto the new stuff until we're completely redecorated for one of those fabulous before and after shots.
