A couple days ago Kathleen went to Target to see what they had in duvets. We have a white king-sized comforter that came with our problem bedroom. Kathleen found a duvet to stuff the comforter into. It was pink and brown. Sort of masculine, but not really with the flowers. With pillowcases and shams, it came to $99.
She was not sure if this was the right idea, so she waited a day and even consulted the husband on the color scheme. When she returned to Target, the duvet was on clearance at $70.
It was a sign.
The rest is history. We mixed the milk chocolate wall paint, got an IKEA Pax wall system and Malm dresser to break up the window problem, ($335) and some two-inch natural wood blinds at Home Depot -- $100.
We need a blonde headboard and a chair to add to Tami's nightstands and we're done!
Oh yes. Now have to shop for stuff to fill all those new shelves and drawers. And the wall needs art. The nightstands need lamps.
Will the hunting and gathering ever cease?
