I’m back again. My apologies for the two month blog break! That was unexpected. But not to worry, I wasn’t going to drop the mic forever on a pottery barn post. Life simply got ahead of me and something had to give.
While I was away from my little old blog, Josie turned three! Three means many things, one of which is a big girl bed. She’ll be transitioning soon to this twin bed that is currently set up in Gracie’s bedroom…
I’m not sure if I’ve shared the story behind the headboard. I have a pair of them and they came from the previous owner of our house. In my cover letter where I begged and pleaded for our home, I mentioned how I loved everything right down to the matching faux bamboo headboards. When we got the house, the previous owner gave them to me as a present. It was the sweetest thing ever! The previous owner lived here for about forty years and her daughter slept with the very same headboard.
One day Grace and Josie will share a room and they will have twin beds lined up with these beautiful headboards! I can’t wait!! Meanwhile, Josie’s headboard is getting painted green.
And now I’m starting to think bedding. I’d like to do a scalloped, percale, cream coverlet, possibly with a monogram in pink. Here’s some inspiration shots of what I’m thinking for the coverlet…
Now that was a wordy post all for a coverlet discussion. But I do think it’s a very simple, classic and refined look for two twin beds. And I especially love the example with the block print quilts folded at the end. Isn’t that room dreamy?
