Finishing Touches

Last week we took some time to add some finishing touches to our bedroom makeover.

The top piece I purchased at Michaels on clearance some time ago.  I didn't really have a good place for until now.  I love how it looks here.  We also added the letters from Kohls.  Now I am looking for and ampersand to add in the middle.

Don't know why this one is so blurry.  I love how this is all coming together.  
There is one more piece we'll be adding to the room and I am still out looking for the perfect night stands~cheap and ready to be refinished. 
Excuse the bed.~ Laundry day~

Here are some pillows I made on Friday.  I have wanted to get these made for quite some time.  

There are more that I want to make but this is a good start.  I am so please with how they came out.  I am a novice sewer and without a pattern I was nervous.

My ruffles need a little straightening out.  They've already been loved and used through out the weekend.

I saw this pillow on someone's blog but cannot remember where.  Fell in love with it and had to give it a try.  It's just perfect.
Both pillows are made with osnaburg fabric. I love this fabric.  So versatile and easy to work with.

Everything looks so great! I'd say you've crossed over from novice sewer to 'knows quite a bit' sewer! Those pillows are pretty impressive - no pattern eh? Good for you!
