As you may have guessed, I love to change my decor. White bedding allows me to change my pillows and decor in my master bedroom as often as I would like. I love having white bedding. It makes my room feel light and airy. My old white comforter has gotten stained from the kiddos, and the comforter that was once white, was now of tinge of yellowish sadness. I had tried to dry it in my drier, and it was too big to fit. When I removed it, it had gotten burned on one side. I was lazy and should have taken the comforter to an industrial sized washer and drier at the landromat. Darn it. Good thing the comforter wasn’t expensive, or I would have been even more ticked.
Someday I may opt for a more expensive comforter, but nowadays, it seems silly to put something expensive on a bed that is constantly spit up on, spilled on, and crawled on by our four kiddos. I love down comforters, but this time I found an alternative down comforter for about $25.00 at Ross so, I went for it.
The comforter has individual squares throughout the design, and I wanted to add a little charm and character to the plain white comforter.
I started by buying some white buttons at Wal-Mart.
I decided to create a pin-tuck look by adding some buttons around the sides of the comforter. It is a subtle change, but it adds a little character and charm to the boring white bedding.
I measured each square to make sure the button was perfectly center.
I used a needle and thread to sew a small gathered area at the center of the squares.
Then, I added a button to each one to finish off the look.
It was VERY simple, and it added just the right amount of love and charm to my new white bedding.
