We are very aware right now of how granite can break the bank faster than you can say "formica sucks"...
So I am aiming to save in every area that I can when it comes to our new house.
When we bought our current house 3.5 years ago we upgraded from a queen to a king bed. Praise God. A king size bed is the ultimate indulgence.
That of course required new bedding. Buying new bedding sounds fun...until you actually have to do it. I could never find anything I loved. Well, most likely what I loved was $1,200 and I don't ever in my lifetime see that being in the bedding budget!!! Anyway I found one at Target that I could live with.
Our "new" bedroom is small and I think our dark bedding will shrink the room even more.
Here is my inspiration room in my quest for new affordable bedding ...
Step #1 I found a creamy matelasse bedspread, like in the picture, on Craigslist for $25. Yep $25 and yep I bought it! Bedspread AND shams...$25. Sweet.
Step #2 I found a Ralph Lauren bedding line, "Charlotte", which I adore.Being RL makes it very unattainable in the budget area....UNLESS it is a discontinued line!! Which translates to EBAY! Woo hoo! It found it readily available on Ebay...sheet sets, new in the package, that I will make into a quilt to put at the foot of the bed like in my inspiration room.
Step #3 is that I can use some of the curtains that were left behind in the house, and embellish them with the RL sheets.
Don't you love it when a plan comes together in an affordable way?
