A few weeks ago I stumbled on an unannounced clearance sale on Target's Rachel Ashwell shabby chic quilts. I bought a single sham and a twin sized quilt for a total price of $35. I had intended to use the quilt as a throw but when I got home, my plans changed...
My name is Anne and I have a linen addiction. Over the years I've accumulated many quilts in different styles, shapes and colours. I adore them!!! Only thing is, they are sitting in a linen closet instead of being on view. Thank you Target, for inspiring me to a guest room quilt explosion makeover!
I took down my tea towel curtains and replaced them with a pink, white and yellow quilted throw that I folded in half. A matching white matelasse throw and shams add another layer- the throw is being used as a table cloth.
I painted my trunk to match the trim in the room and then painted the straps on the trunk in pale aqua. That ugly bed railing is going to be replaced by a home-made bed frame someday soon. It's actually a futon and I want to get rid of it asap!!
I had a piece of satin that I draped over the lampshade to give it a shabby chic look.
A seersucker duvet in off-white keeps the colours from being overwhelming.
I cut a piece of plywood into the shape of beach cabanas and glued wood squares on. I painted it to match all the colours in the room. The letters are written in black Sharpie and I hung crystals across the sign for a whimsical look.
It wouldn't be a photo shoot if Max didn't hone in on the action. Here he is looking very impressed with the makeover - NOT. He's actually trying to figure out how to get to the tulips I have on the window sill. He loves to eat tulips... sigh. No more fresh flowers for me this spring!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
Have a great week! xox
