Hello Friends! It's January, that time of year when many retailers feature linen sales. Let's face it--nothing says "Home Sweet Home" quite like comfy bedding, but you don't have to spend a small fortune! While I would not recommend purchasing mattresses or the pillows you sleep on from thrift stores, most everything else I use in my four bedrooms have been estate sale or thrift finds. Once purchased, I carry them from my car directly to the washing machine. Throw pillows are sprayed with my organic linen spray, placed inside a pillowcase, and run through a dryer cycle. Natural sunlight is also a great way to disinfect items you might not want to put in the dryer. Check out these lovelies--all thrifted finds!
I use Vintage pillowcases not only on my bed pillows but also to cover throw pillows, like the one pictured below on the right. It fit perfectly; no sewing required!
This gorgeous chenille bedspread was brand spanking new and I scored it for $7 at a yard sale!
More Vintage pillowcases arranged on my bedroom chaise for instant charm and comfort.
This pretty pink coverlet cost me all of $3 from my local thrift store and is the perfect combination paired with my snuggly light weight comforter. While the comforter is not a thrift find, it is a great all season comforter and is currently on sale--any size for $40! With the reasonable shipping, it is the best price I have seen. I have had mine for over a year and have been extremely pleased with the quality! Finally, are my silk flower embellished pillows. I made the floral one and trimmed it with thrifted Vintage lace. The velvet pillow was a $3 clearance find. Then, I simply hand sewed dollar store flowers onto both pillows. Trust me, if you can sew on a button, you can tack a flower to a pillow!
When it comes to bedding, do you have a comfy favorite that you cannot do without? Do tell!
