I Love White, But…

I am a big lover of white.  White furniture, white linens, white paint etc.…  Okay maybe not white underwear.  But I am a lover of most things white.  However there does get to be a point where this too much of a good thing.  This was the case in my daughters room. 

I had painted the bed white.  She has an antique vanity that we bought which is white.  I will be painting it someday but I’m scared of it being lead paint.  She has white pillows, white comforter, white photo frames etc.…

So today I sold a piece of furniture and decided to put our money into some color for her room.  I say color… it’s grey lol.  Okay I’m a commitment phobe!  I admit.  But she does have pink sheets, a pink throw and I will be adding some pink pillows once I find a few cute ones.  I’m even thinking some pink and grey curtains.

After:  Oh I love Ikea!  Got two down pillows, a down comforter (accidentally bought a twin oops.  So I will pass that on to little bear and get a full) the duvet cover and both pillow cases for $100!!  She loves it and I’m jealous.  It looks more comfy than my bed!

I just found a new bed for little bear on Craig's list and sent an email.  If it works out her room will be black white and red!!  Exciting!

Ahh, that bedding is my favorite! I have it on my bed, the bed is a similar style, but in black. :) I wish I could get away with pink, but I don't think my husband would like that!

I love that comforter I was just admiring it the other day at our ikea. I have never had good luck with their linens though - they always seem to come out of the dryer SUPER wrinkled...Hope you have better luck because it's sure cute and no one wants to iron sheets. Thanks for sharing.
