It all started very innocently when Tony asked my mom (who is visiting for a week) to help make some window treatments for our catch-all downstairs guest room. And it ended not quite as innocently when we walked into Target to get some last minute Valentine's party things and right into a HUGE 75% off sale. So we picked up 2 queen quilts, a twin quilt, two bone surrounded mirrors, a new set of sheets and a twin set of green sheets. And spent all of $98. Seriously. My mom and I used the twin sheet set in green to make a dust ruffle, another pillowcase, and the valance for the window. We also cut up the twin quilt and made pillow shams and a throw pillow. It was so much fun and with two sets of hands, so easy and quick. So, what do you think??
And just a fun idea: The little beige book on the nightstand? It is our guest book that we purchased after the room and bathroom were finished in November 2007 and ready to receive guests. We include a picture from each visit and the guest writes a little note. It is fun to look back on the fun visits from friends and loved ones.
