My New Bedding & a Sneak Peak

I got some new bedding...and I love it!
I feel like I have a completely different room:o)
I decided one day to stop by Pottery Barn to see what they had..not really expecting much in the sale department...and low and behold I found this duvet cover for $31...a steal, I know.
I needed to accessorize this new awesomely cheap bedding...
So I went into Mission-Pillow-Hunt at Stein Mart. They had one pillow sham that matched the duvet perfectly...but only one. Ahhh! Panic mode had set in. I called all of the surrounding Stein Marts including some in Tennessee. I only needed two more people!!  Apparently this is a popular pillow because all of the stores except for one (just outside of Nashville) were sold out...and that one had only two. Talk about
 luck! Thankfully my mother happened to be in the area the next day and was able to pick them up for me...such a sweet little momma:o) 
Aren't they pretty?

Did you happen to notice the ruffly pillow? Wanna know what it was BEFORE it was a pillow? A table runner! I found this table runner at T.J. Maxx for $12.99. They had a few colors to choose from, but this color suited my room the best.

 It just so happened that my shabby, well-slept-on king size pillow was the perfect size to slip inside.
 So I ripped the seams at one end.
 Slid the well-slept-on pillow inside, and stitched it back up.
Are you loving it? I know I am:o) Next on the "to buy" list is a new bed skirt. I want a fru-fru bedskirt that is really full and girly:o)
 And this is a sneak peak "before shot" of the dresser I am working on for E. I have changed it up a bit and finished painting it today. I'm hoping to share the end results with you all either Thursday or Friday.
You won't believe what I paid for it...any guessers?
