Well, this was super easy! I'm not sure who was the first one in blog land to come up with this, but it's brilliant! Was it Layla? I only started reading diy blogs last summer...so I'm not sure?
Old news for many of you, but it's still a great idea!
At Home Depot they had a "bonus pack" of 2, 6x9 ft. drop cloths for 10.00! What a steal!
After washing them, they were perfect and soft with the exact color I wanted for my son's room.
I also found a deal on bedding at Target today. I'll post on that next. I thought for sure if I "made it myself" I would save tons of money...that's not always true. I have to be careful to add the cost of materials before I plunge into making something!
