It's All in the Details:Ribbon Trim

Sometimes it's the details that really make the difference. Like this grosgrain ribbon I added to plain pillowcases--it makes it look so much more custom!

All it took was some ribbon and Heat and Bond...
and after ironing, I ran the ribbon through the sewing machine to be sure it will hold up in the washer and dryer.

For the rest of the bedroom, I ordered this striped duvet cover on sale from West Elm last spring (it's no longer available)...
and this bed frame from Cymax. I plan on making this beautiful headboard from West Elm myself. It retails for $499 but I hope I can make one for under $100. Wish me luck!

  1. I have no doubt that you can make that headboard after seeing the other amazing things you've done! I'm looking forward to seeing the blog post about it. That's a great idea with the ribbon trim. I often purchase sheets and duvet covers on clearance, so sometimes they don't still have the matching pillowcases.
