Our New Bed

C and I recently bought a new mattress and we are LOVING it. Of course, with buying a new mattress came new bedding. We found the bedding set online, but I wanted to make some fun pillows to add a little COLOR. I've always loved the fabrics used in Anthropolgie bedding, but it is so expensive. I found some table napkins at the local store and used them to make my pillows - a must more cost effective way of decorating. I used extra fabric I had left over from another project for the backs of the pillows and another small throw pillow.

"Ta Da"

Here is the finished product:

I love the bedding. Okay when we move back I am going to need you to help me decorate and maybe sow a few pillows. I miss having you here to do projects with. We can't wait to hang out with you guys this summer. We should do a quick CA trip the first of May.
