Aaaak! My computer has been running extraordinarily slowly this evening and I accidentally closed Live Writer without saving the post I was working on, so I have to start all over!
hours some time today browsing the internet and playing around with Polyvore for the first time, with this bedroom in mind. Because you know there’s no way I could or would just go out and buy everything she used.
That’s not a bad thing, though, because it made me step back and realize that while I love the feel of Sarah’s bedroom, my own bedroom would out of necessity end up being somewhat different. In fact, some things would be different because my style (for now, anyway) leans a little more cottage/vintage than modern/sleek.
And now that I’ve spent all that time on Polyvore, I can’t figure out how to get my set over here. So, I’ll do this one by one, doggonit. These are just possibilities, not probabilities.
Coverlet from Target, $89.
Found the actual lamp at Lamps Plus for $160, not crazy outrageous, but way more than I would spend. I do quite like it, though.
Here’s a possible alternative from JC Penney, $80. Totally different, I know, but ain’t it purdy? In reality, I hope to find something at a thrift store that will run me more like $10-20 once I do the required makeover.
I found the actual fabric Sarah used. I’m pretty sure on the show she said it was only about $11/yard, but this is the store she got it from and it’s $30/yd. It’s 110” wide, though. Maybe I could just buy one yard and use it to make pillows and recover the seat of my chair.
This white cotton/linen feather-filled pillow gives the appearance of a monogram, $13 at Ikea.
Welp, I feel like this is an incomplete post, but I have been sitting here for literally hours wrestling with my computer and everything, and I’m ready to wash my hands of the whole affair. And so, complete or not, it is finished.
