See my pretty new bedding? The bedding that isn't TOO girly or TOO masculine? Not to shabby. Do you ALSO notice how my curtains don't even match my pretty new bedding? Nope, not even a LITTLE bit! It's a little on the tacky side, I agree.
This is how we got our new bedding to not match our curtains. I'll tell you this so you won't have the same problem I do....
We went to that fun store that loves to suck us dry, affectionately know as "wally world" in our house. We went there after we had already been to a store to buy some items we needed to work out with. We were kind of on a time crunch and only went there to get a few items. We remembered we needed a bed skirt because apparently you can't dry a bed skirt? I wasn't aware of this until AFTER I had washed it. So, we're strolling down the isles and Husband sees a really nice bed set. We never agree on a bed set and have had the same one for YEARS. We didn't even buy that one, my parents gave it to us. I liked it AND he liked it AND the price wasn't too bad. We're looking at it and I wasn't even thinking about our curtains, I was just so excited that we were agreeing on something. Upon looking at it more closely, we realized it didn't come with a bed skirt. The ONE thing we really need. That pretty bed set went back on the shelf and I cried a bit. It was SO nice, too! Oh well, at least Husband is committed to looking for a new one. All hope is not lost.
We go down another isle and we see a few sets that either he liked and I didn't or I liked and he didn't. Finally we agree on the one we got. It's has some blue in it, as well as some beige as does our curtains. The funny part about all of this is that I DID pick up the one that matches our curtains, but we thought that would be TOO much red, so we both nixed it. We purchased it and came home to make our bed.
The set is perfect, it has sheets, pillow cases, a bed skirt AND comforter that ALL match. We're happily making our bed and joking around and it's all made. It all looks so nice, until...I look up at our curtains. "Uhhh babe? This set doesn't match our curtains! Not even a little bit!" That's what I said in a panic. He said, "you said it would look fine." "well clearly I was wrong, what are we gonna do?!" Still pretty panicked. His answer was "Oh it's fine, it's not even that big of a deal. Nobody cares." Because he is a man and has NO idea what I'm talking about, I leave the subject alone. Obviously he doesn't care that our curtains don't match our bedding, although I can't really blame him. It really isn't THAT big of a deal, but it's still bugging me.
Thankfully those curtains can go in our front room and we can get new ones for our room OR we can buy new bedding because I washed our comforter today and it TORE! The corner came apart and I can see the batting on the inside. I could sew it, but I haven't even had it for a week! Oh and I'm not all that great at sewing. Plus, if I do sew it, it'll just come unraveled again when I wash it. I'm a bit miffed about it, but then again..you get what you pay for. The whole thing was less then $50. Oh well...live and learn, right?!
Go on over and see what else is being brought to class.
