Refreshing the Master Bedroom

Our master bedroom has looked the same for a long time.  We have lots of trouble finding bedding to look right on this bed, because it is high, plus it has huge mattress and box springs.  I had looked for hours online for bedding big enough for it. Finally, I measured it, and instead of going to various stores carrying bedding, I typed the measurements into the search bar, 118 x 110 bedding.  Then several links came up that carry what is called super-sized king bedding, including Amazon through ECity Direct, price $49.99.  I was a little suspicious, but the reviews for the bedding were very good, so I decided to order it and see.  (Chezmoi Kingston Collection, spread, 2 king size shams ) So a really great bargain.  When I opened it, I was sure I had done the right thing.  The spread is the same on both sides, and is the perfect weight.

I've shown before how I had sewn a large dust ruffle to the quilt that was on our bed, to make it long enough to fully cover the mattress.
BEFORE



This has worked just fine, but I was ready for a change.  

AFTER

It's a lovely blue, and I left an ecru dust ruffle on the bed.  I have another ruffle I found at Good Will that I plan to put on the bed soon to see how it works with the spread.


I like the quality of this bedding.

I found the pillows below at Good Will @ $2.52 each.

 The cover on this antique table is a scarf from Good Will some time ago.  It has beads along the ends.  I tied it at the front corners so it would not be on the floor.



I made this wreath a long time ago, and pinned these aqua flowers on it today.
 You can see the print of the grain sack stripes through the scarf.  I painted them on the table, and like how they show through.  Painting the table was one of my first blogging posts.
I'm really happy with this bedding, and still can't believe the great price!!
