Just thought I would share my fun find. I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I'm getting ready to redo Sammie's room for her 5th birthday next month. Well, I have been on the lookout for some really cute bedding. It is not out there!! I've looked everywhere and I still couldn't find what I was looking for. So today I was super excited to find this little gem at my local ROSS store. I usually don't go into ROSS, because it is horribly messy and way to "jenga" for me, but today I thought what the heck. I went to the sheet section and it was a total bust until I was leaving and this caught my eye.
A little old twin sheet with the perfect colors in it (chambray, blushy pink, cream and a little soft sage for good measure) The best part was that it was on clearance for $5. I love the Ralph Lauren bedding and you just can't beat that price. So now I have my "inspiration" piece and the next step is selecting the paint.
I was at Home Depot tonight, but since I was with 4 kids, my paint selecting time wasn't all that productive. I did decide that instead of the bottom part of the wall being blue, I think I will paint it pink and have the blue be part of the checked border at the top. The blue sheet which I'm sewing into a duvet cover just wouldn't "pop" with a blue wall, but a "blush" wall, totally different story.
I just love when the pieces start to fall into place. Tomorrow while Sammie is in class I think I will go back to Home Depot, bring my fabric and actually get the paint. I will probably also hit the TJMAXX and ROSS in Tacoma to see if I can find more of these sheets or better yet, pillowcases. I would love to find a pink and cream ticking or gingham sheet set, but you just never know. I will keep you posted if I pick up anymore goodies :0)
