What Have I been up to?

This week has been full of little projects. Like... going through tubs of kids clothes in the basement to sell on our Garage Sale site. making cloth napkins, and who can for get laundry!
But I think my most favorite project of all was this one.
Here's my little story to go with it.
 
I love Pottery Barn Kids Quilts, I have for years, not so much for the name. but the quality of the quilts themselves. I had been watch this adorable set for a while now for the boys room. but I could never bring myself to spend $99. each for them.
 
I just love it.!
This weekend I got to go Garage Sales in a town nearby.  And guess what I found?  This adorable Queen size quilt for only $8. I originally bought it for Jon and I's bed. but after getting it home I didn't just " Love It " like I thought that I would.
 

So guess what ???? It got a make over and a new home.  The Boys Beds!

So I Cute it up the center and rolled down the two sides and pined it.
 


And  30 min later...there you have it!!! I love it.



 I never would have thought that I would like as much as the Pottery Barn ones. but you know what I DO! It's just what we needed to and all for $8. I'm going to make them some fun pillows out of the shams that came with in the near future. :)
So I guess the Thrifty side of me came out again. I can't help but praise the Lord for a good deal, and for a fun project for our boys. They just loved it. the back side is really soft. and Aiden loves that. :)
So there's my Quilt story for ya!

What have you been up to this week? I'd love to hear form you. :)
I'll try and post tomorrow about the cloth napkins that I got finished as well.
I'm starting a new journey for our family towards being a " Paper Free" Home. and I'll post on that in the very near future.

Till me meet again, Have a blessed day!

that's great, you should come to my house, I have some new stickers for the walls I need to find a place for and maybe do some painting, I have that "bug" of wanting to decorate, re-do something over the summer

Great job! I am on the look out for a quilt for Megan's bed. Comforters just don't hold up to washings. Now I am inspired to hit some thrift stores and garage sales!

I love good Will and Sally's (Salvation Army) as my Sisters and I call it.
You never know what you might find Wendi, and they often have like
50% off days.
Happy Hunting!
