A Little More Shabby Chic Progress

Little by little I'm getting Halie's Shabby Chic room makeover done.  Almost there....almost there.  The newest addition is a bedskirt.  I looked on Ebay for a couple of months before I finally found what I was looking for.  I wanted it to be pink and it had to have a 15-16 in drop to hide the under the bed storage containers that hold toys and shoes.  It was taking so long to find something acceptable I even considered buying white and dying it pink.  But FINALLY....I came across this one and it fit the bill perfectly.

You can't see it very well in the photo, but it has cute little flowers embroidered along the bottom.

So, any-hoo.....her bedding is now complete!

Cute little blanket her Papaw and Meemaw had made for her a couple of years ago.

 It's kinda funny how this set all came together.  I ordered a quilt from Ebay, but when I received it, it wasn't the one I had ordered.  The seller said the picture was posted incorrectly and she didn't actually have the one I ordered and offered me a refund.  BUT...long story short, I decided to keep the one she sent.  We were getting ready to move when I ordered it so pretty much as soon as it came it got packed away for the move.

A few weeks later I found the "tootsie roll" pillow at a thrift store.  Then a couple of weeks after that I found the little square pillow at Home Goods and thought it would look good with the new quilt.  I couldn't remember for sure what the patterns in it were, but I was fairly sure it would coordinate pretty well.  Come to find out, it was a PERFECT match to the quilt!  Then, after we moved I began the search for sheets.  I already had one set, white with a pretty eyelet trim that was given to me, but I wanted another set.  I was thinking light pink with little pink flowers.  I searched Ebay for weeks, finally found what I had pictured in my mind, and when I got them.....a PERFECT match to her quilt!  I couldn't believe it.  THEN, when I ordered her bedskirt, again, I knew in my mind what I wanted and finally found it, when I got it- it was from the same exact line of bedding as her quilts and sheets!  Crazy.  So, without even trying to, I perfectly matched it all up and it looks super cute!

I mix and match her two sheet sets and use the pillow case from one set with the sheets from the other.  I think it adds to the Shabby Chic-ness of it all.  Here's the pink sheets with the eyelet trimmed pillow case.

And here's the eyelet sheets with the pink case. 

If you're interested in reading more about her room makeover you can find the bed re-do {here}, all about her kitchen and a few other little makeovers and projects {here}, a thrifty wall art project {here}, the lamp makeover {here}, and the original inspiration source {here}

So, what's left to do?  Still have to make curtains, finish painting the wall to the left of her bed and add some art/decor to it (I know what I want to do, just have to find the thing I need to make it happen), and eventually redo her dresser.  By the time I get it all done we'll probably be ready to move again, lol!
