Make Do Monday: Bedspread
Ann Kroeker has a great new carnival "dedicated to sharing the creative, frugal or even humble ways we’re making-do." I think this is a terrific idea! Be sure to head over and read about her Christmas pajama ordeal.
My Make Do Monday is about my bedspread. You may recall that I recently mentioned I want a new one. The current one is worn out and has holes in it. And by holes, I don't mean small, barely noticeable holes, but huge holes where you can see the blanket underneath.
A new bedspread is just not in the budget at the moment, so I decided to find a way to make do. I pulled out an old quilt that I love (although it's almost as shabby as my bedspread) and spread it on top. It's a twin size quilt, so it doesn't cover the whole bed. I guess you could call it the layered look. At least it adds some warmth and looks better than all those holes. Sort of adds to the cottage charm of my bedroom don't you think? :)
