New Bedding

Last night I was able to get the new bedding put on the bed so the B&B is now open for business once again!

When I saw this plaid blanket at Target a few weeks back on clearance I knew I had to have it. I wanted to add a few masculine touches to the room and I figured this was the perfect piece. And no I did NOT pay the cat to sit on the bed. Max just thinks that he should be in all the pics lately!:) He was no where to be found till I got the camera out.

The quilt is from Target part of the Shabby Chic collection. I love the design on it.

Just a few accent pillows you have already seen. I can NOT wait till the head board is done and back in the room.

Since the head board is giving me all kinds of fits with stripping it I have pretty much decided to make it look a lot like this one.

I am dreaming about Sonya's Double Ruffle Box Pillows!! I think I really NEED me some for the bed!;) If you have not been over to Beyond The Screen Door I suggest ya pay Sonya a visit. You will not be disappointed! I wish I could sew as well as her or at least could have her as a neighbor!:) I could pay her to show me some of her tricks of the trade.

A few of you have been eye balling another new addition to the guest bedroom that I have failed to mention.

I purchased a lot of odds and ends a few months back and in that lot were not one but THREE sets of antique wood shutters! I was just waiting to find something to do with them and then  over the weekend it dawned on me to hang a set on either side of the window in here. They were already stained and work in the room just fine so one less thing to have to do. I am hoping to get them hung this weekend as well as the new curtains. 

Thanx for stopping by! I hope that your week is going well thus far. Hard to believe it is almost half over already.

  1. Pamela, your bedding looks great! LOVE the plaid blanket with the quilt! Can't wait to see the headboard with it! It's going to be beautiful!

  2. A great look for your room, Pamela. The shutters are going to look great. I love your plaid blanket. I have a flannel quilt in plaid that I made that I would love to fold on the end of our guest bed. I just need to find an affordable white or cream spread first (no Target here.)

  3. Everything is just looking so beautiful Pamela! That dust ruffle you made is fabulous and I am super impressed because I know how hard those can be. No one is going to want to leave your B&B! :-)

  4. Loving the bedding! And I think you should send me one of the other sets of shutters. ;)

  5. Can I make a reservation? It's looking great!

  6. Hi, Pamela! Your B&B is coming together nicely! See, I knew I liked that blanket! Thanks for the shoutout!!!

  7. Love the quilt and the pillows and your kitty is adorable!

  8. Hi Pamela, your bedding looks gorgeous and that headboard is going to look fabulous! I love what your plans are for it.

    Have a wonderful day,

  9. It's looking good Pamela. So soft and cofy. I love the quite and the addtion of the plaid blanket makes the room look so cozy. I can't wait to see the room completely finished.

  10. Love the bedding!! Can't wait to see the headboard.

  11. In the restoration of this old house of ours, I have stripped miles of molding. I don't know what you have tried to use to strip your headboard, but a heat gun is my favorite stripping tool. Get a heat gun, a flexible putty knife, a carbide pull scraper, and a melon baller, and you should be able to strip all the contours of the moldings on your headboard. If you need advice, I'll be glad to do what I can to help.

    Of COURSE cats have to check out all the new stuff and give it their seal of approval. It's a cat thing.

  12. Coming along nicely, Pamela! Can't wait to see the headboard {fits or not}. : ) I have missed some of Sonya's posts, I think. I will have to try and backtrack to check out those pillows.

  13. Hi Pamela,
