DayBed Part II/Met Monday

Hi everyone. Sorry I have been gone so long. I was a wedding planner for a wedding that happened on October 3rd. It was wonder but had taken up most of my time. I hope to post pics of the wedding on Wednesday.

As for today I have the daybed saga part II. I finally found bedding and pillows that I liked as well as one piece of art work so I have joined up with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for a Met Monday. As seen on August 30th the daybed went a partial tranformation with a new coat of paint. Now it has new bedding and a fresh new look.
Tada a brand new look for the bed. The comforter came from JCPenney Cindy Crawford collection. It was a pretty good price and then of course I had a coupon and free shipping. It came with the two shams bedskirt and comforter. I am going to cut the bedskirt and make a window treatment out of part of it. The smallest size was a full size so I had to make adjustments to fit. It shams need to be stuffed a little more for me. The three pillows with the buttons are from Pottery Barn. The yellow were on sale for $11.99 for the covers and $19.99 for the red. I suplurged a little on that. The bolster pillow I made from a $5.00 bolster and leftover fabric I had. I also had leftover tassel fringed which I tied the pillow with. The colors work perfectly together.
I found the sunflower print at Ross store for $12.99. That was a good deal since the framing has such an intricate pattern on it.

I also tried to spruce up the top of the computer cabinet. I added pictures of my children, a frame I got for free, which a printed an S for my name and put in it. Also the hat box which I already had, a white final also in my home not being used and my new favorite Party Planning book.

This is the room as you would be looking into it from the doorway. I replaced the black and red lamp with a lamp from my bedroom also not in use at the moment. It goes well in here. The second hat box is being used to raise the lamp and another free picture frame on the end table. I also had a piece of leftover sheer fabric with a leaf patter which I placed on the table.
Ok that is my makover for this Met Monday. I hoped you enjoy and love the colors as I do. I hope to complete the window treatment and add shelves soon!
See you then. Watch for my wedding post coming soon!. Again that you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting the Met Monday transformations. Be sure to enjoy everyone's.
