Okay, I'm in a very "braggy" mood.

As you can see in the this picture, I have this green comforter on my bed and out of the pillow shams that came with it, I made some curtains. I never loved the comforter, but having bought it online, I just decided to make myself like it.

Here's where the totally awesome part comes in. My totally hot/rad husband bought me an awesome bed for my birthday and a couple of days ago I bought an awesome aqua colored quilt at Target because we really needed something lighter on our bed now that the weather is getting warmer. And, I had some fabric that I bought with Shelley awhile ago and it was like $1 a yard and I loved it but never figured out what to make out of it other than a nursing cover. And, it matches the new quilt perfectly, so I made a little window valance! I'm totally in love with my bedrooms new look. Take a look and see for yourself.

New bed + new quilt + plus new curtain (it took me about 45 min. to make) = one totally rad new bedroom that Kyle and I both ADORE!!!

did you keep your old mattress? i like the simple frame.
i like the new bed blanket better, our room is in kind of that color too. i have sort of an infatuation with bluish green right now (= good job on making a valance. that is a much cheaper and simpler way to do it!
