Hey Glampers, Time to Decorate!

Hi Glampers!
It's that time to decorate! Currently many stores are featuring bedding, decorations, and organizers for the back to school and college dorm crowd. You can pick up some great bedding and decorating options by going to stores such as Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond (a bit pricey) and Walmart, etc. Look for "Bed-in-a-Bag" options as they typically are low cost and include sheets, comforter, skirt and shams. If you don't need the shams, fitted sheet or skirt you can easily sew them into curtains and/or small pillow covers. Everything is coordinated and costs are small.

Following are the typical sizes: (personally, I like the queen size because when it is folded in half it is 45" wide and fits neatly on top of the bed which I leave made up all day and rarely use the table set up. I have found it's always better to have too much comforter rather than too little)
  • Twin set includes: comforter (68" x 86"), flat sheet (66" x 96"), standard pillowcase (20" x 30"), standard pillow sham (20" x 26"), fitted sheet (39" x 75" x 14") and bed skirt (39" x 75" with 14" drop)
  • Full set includes: comforter (76" x 86"), flat sheet (81" x 96"), 2 standard pillowcases (20" x 30"), 2 standard pillow shams (20" x 26"), fitted sheet (54" x 75" x 14") and bed skirt (54" x 75" with 14" drop)
  • Queen set includes: comforter (86" x 90"), flat sheet (90" x 102"), 2 standard pillowcases (20" x 30"), 2 standard pillow shams (20" x 26"), fitted sheet (60" x 80" x 14") and bed skirt (60" x 80" with 14" drop)
  • King set includes: comforter (102" x 90"), flat sheet (108" x 102"), 2 king pillowcases (20" x 40"), 2 king pillow shams (20" x 36"), fitted sheet (78" x 80" x 14") and bed skirt (78" x 80" with 14" drop)
Let's hear from you. What is your latest decorating project and what is "in progress" or in the "dream stage"? What are your favorite sources for fabric, supplies and props?

I, too, love the paisley theme! You did a great job on curtains. So often I see that people do not leave enough "ruffliness"/fullness in the curtains. When the curtain stretches almost flat across the curtain bar the curtains look cheap. You have also selected a fabric that has enough "heft" to it to drape nicely.

That really looks nice, and I still love the round table.

My front dinette uses a colorful striped indoor/outdoor fabric from fabric.com for the seat cushions and the window topper. The the black/white ticking pillow fabric was also fabric.com. The tablecloth is vintage (etsy) and the white window panels are made from a vintage pillow case that I split in half. The banner swag was crocheted by a friend.

Fabric.com is neat to shop at because they will also show you complementary patterns and colors to the fabric you choose.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for showing us your inspired rig interior and explaining the finds. You've shown us that with a color theme, a few vintage finds and creativity you can create a personalized abode.

Don't you just love pennants? See my photo of a pennant I made using the corduroy fabric for a pillow too. I want to know where you found the pillow with the trailer theme.
