We got the curtains first, from Lowes and ended up having to decorate everything around them. I found a really pretty comforter at JCP.com, but when I went to look at it in the store, it competed too much with the curtains. It ended up not matching even a little. I'm glad I didnt' order it online!
So we found this classic stripe comforter in brown on clearence. We also got the sheets from JCP on sale.
Here is the picture on JCP.com
View from the doorway.Gary built the valance thing to cover our curtain rod. It matches the ceiling and bed.
Here is the table at the end of the bed. Gary put a top on it, and I didn't like it...
Here it is without the top. We got the table for $5 at a yard sale a few years ago. It was white. The "antiqueing" is on purpose. It's G's style.
We already had the throw pillows from other parts of the house. We got them from Garden Ridge. The sheets are called "Ogee Brown" from JCP.
Light blue walls. They look almost white, except next to soething white. We plan on putting pictures in the "window" thing. It will be awesome.
G insisted that he hated our fan with seperate bulb cover things. We wanted one that blended into the ceiling, had 5 blades instead of 4, and had a single bowl instead of spererate ones. We got this one from Lowes. It meets all of the requirements and ties the room together.
