Well any ways... My room...Even when it was OUR room. Has been done in shades of blue, like for ever. A lot of navy shades of blue.
One of the complaints of HERSELF was indeed about the blue. Leopard print sheets just didn't cut the blue enough either...*grins*
And I have been getting a little tired of it as well.
I was rambling through WallyWorld today, looking for something else. Which incidentally I did not happen to find. I KNOW! Amazing, right!?
At anyrate I found myself in the home section looking at sheets and comforters...
And I may have found something I actually like. If fact I did like it. So I bought it! And guess what! It ain't blue! Not one little bit! Not even a teense. While blue is one of my favorite colors, it is NOT the favorite color.
I bought a spare set of sheets as well. Organic cotton, so the packaging says, 300 thread count. I've never slept on anything organic, except maybe the ground *grins* so I reckon I'll give those a try first...
Then I was on a quest to find curtains to match. Figured IKEA was a good place. And it was I found just what I was looking for I think. One small issue. These curtains needed to be hemmed *gasp*
But they had thoughtfully included the hemming tape. And instructions! Soooooo. (Jeebus this sounds frickin' domestic) I put them up, marked where they needed to be. Took them downstairs and did the hemming thing, taking into consideration the shrinkage factor of 4%.
And now I give you the new look. Jeebus! Almost looks over the top to me...But I am a beach kinda guy. Tropical beach. Kind. Of. Guy.
Behind a cut, because I am a thoughtful kind of guy. Sometimes..
Let's start with the drapes. I calls them curtains...
Flash or no flash... Well let's try that in a different light:
Little closer to the truth of it.
Here's the other side of the story:
The set came with the little pillows, the sheets, the skirt, pillowcases, and the (light) quilt. The bedspread was an add-on, because quilt season is about over here. There are sheets as well, but I wanted to try the organic ones.
You can also see (part of) the pile of blue that came off of the bed over thar to the left.
I kinda like it. Also got a side sleeper's wedge from Relax the Back. It seemsto be helping. You can see it on that dresser that isn't supposed to be in here, but it is...
