At long last, the bed is sporting new bedding most of which was purchased months ago from a variety of places. The quilt/coverlet I found at SteinMart way back in the spring. At that time I had no idea what I would find to go with it so it sat in my closet all summer.
The small needle point pillow was also a thrift store find. The euro shams, dust ruffle and throw pillow are all part of a set from Dillard's. As soon as I found out that they were going to be on their extra 40% off sale I just sat and waited for that day. Fortunately, the shams worked with the coverlet I had already picked up.
One thing that decorating our bedroom has taught me is patience. I don't believe there isn't anything in this room that I haven't had to wait to purchase or find. A few weeks ago I also shared that the vanity that was serving as a bedside table had made a move up to the guest room. It got to move when I found a new/old bedside table on one of those online yard sale sites that are all over Facebook.
Let's talk about lamps for just a minute. I don't love the one on the night stand. There is a pair of them that I have had forever! John was a baby when I found these in Kirkland's some 16 years ago. For now they will get us by for bedside lighting. Honestly ya'll, I'm not sure what I want in their place. Something with a bit more color for sure, a larger shade no doubt! But again....patience.
Since we still do not have a headboard for our king size bed I knew whatever went over the bed would need to make a statement and almost imulate a headboard. These prints were a find at an antique store about 2 years ago and have been in various spots in the house. Not sure when it occured to me to put those over the bed but I knew they would be perfect.
Now if I could just find lamps and curtains....yet another lesson in patience.
