{Ruffled} bedskirt

Ughhhhhh I am having a rough Monday! I spent alllllll weekend (ok, not all, but a lot of it) studying for two big tests today, one went well the other was a complete disaster. Finance is not my friend. Here's hoping for a tremendous curve :)

In between cram sessions I worked on dying a bedskirt for my master bedroom.  The comforter I have is the ruffle circle quilt from West Elm which is not white, nor ivory, but stone white which is really annoying because I can't find a darn thing that matches it. I tried white, cream, ivory, nothing looked good so finally I decided I would just try dying one.  I found a great deal on a ivory ruffled one from amazon, found here.


Not bad for 33 bucks.


I bought 3 packets of grey dye from Hob Lob along with some gloves, blue hands are not in :)


Boiled and dissolved the salt and dye and dumped it in a tub.


I read that you can use the washing machine, but I was nervous it would stain it. Let soak for 1 hour and then wash {twice} and dry.


Looooooove me some ruffles!!


At least SOMETHING went right today!

  9. Pretty!!! We are lacking "grown up" linens for our king size bed. I hate how nothing drapes nicely over the sides and fits two people sleeping... we both hog the blankets so we actually sleep with two different ones, which makes making the bed hard.
