Happy Halloween to everyone! Got your jack-o-lanterns, costumes and candy ready? I have been restraining myself on the candy front, just bought it yesterday, but I will admit, I did sneak some...!!!
Well it is week #5 of the One Room Challenge link up and I am excited about how the linens and pillows look in my daughter's room.
I actually did another couple of DIY's in her space. I made a duvet cover from a couple of sheets I had on hand. Can I have a round of applause?
Generally I like to hire such projects out, but being on an essentially nonexistent budget, I did it myself. And it turned out pretty well. I won't bore you with the how to as there are tons of tutorials out there and it takes more time than skill. This week I had a little bit of time and maybe a tiny bit of skill!
My CSIL made a couple of pillows which were added to the ones we already had.
Like this green and turquoise number…. (sitting on top of the duvet cover I made….see it???!!!)
And this lovely in the Thomas Paul peacock, all trimmed in orange.
The other pillows have been in my daughter's room forever and are normally on the floor, not all neat and tidy on the bed, if you get my drift!
I know you are jealous, why can't you have a CSIL like me??? Someone who can make gorgeous pillows and stuff. Well fear not, if you read my post from the other day, you will know that Therese will be offering her pillows for sale very soon and you too can own some!
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about my other DIY….
I framed and matted the sea life prints on the wall.
I had it all on hand, a calendar from 2009,
frames from Michaels from another project and the time…. nothing too challenging.
And the best part? My daughter had seen the prints and asked to have them in her room!
Well I am off to link up and see what the other participants are up to:
Week #5 of the One Room Challenge linking party
And if you missed it yesterday go see the goodness in store with the
Week #5 ORC official participants!
Have a fun Halloween!
