Friday's bedroom finery
Ahh, Friday... a day that I used to look forward to beginning on Monday morning. Right now Friday just means the end of another week and I wonder how far off schedule I am and if I will ever get everything done before the holidays!
Please check in at Lit and Laundry and Expressly Corgi to see what others have accomplished this week. Both logos are clickable links.
Last weekend I showed Bill a quilt and curtains in a Penney's sale catalog, unsure whether he would like them or not. He did and I ordered them on Monday. One thing that bugs me about Penney's (and presumably other stores) is that you have to check prices from ALL of their sale catalogs and online shops. The items I ordered were all clearance sales, but the quilt and shams were significantly cheaper using the catalog number. The drapes were less expensive using the online info.
The order came Wednesday morning, less than 48 hours after ordering. I couldn't wait to put the new stuff out so I spent the afternoon cleaning the bedroom and swapping out bed linens. A simple tailored black bedskirt and black tablecloth came from Bed, Bath & Beyond to finish my decor. I bought valances but they were way too long to suit me. They will be returned today and new rods with rings and clips will be bought and installed after the holidays.
While I didn't buget time for this project this particular busy week, I am so glad it is done. My room looks fresh and welcoming to me.
