I recently gave our guest room a very over due make-over. You can go on over to my other blog Olde Tyme Marketplace to see the results.
The tweeking however still contines, which to me is the funnest part!
This morning I was bloggin and I looked over to my stack of feedsacks (yes they share a room) and I saw this HUGE Quaker Oats one that made me think hmmmmmmm....
that bed really does need some more pillows ......soooooo before I went to work today I put this baby together and love how it turned out!
It took like 10 minutes. You gotta love easy schmeasy projects like this!So this is how I ended up with oatmeal in the bedroom!

I really like the texture element it gives the room as well as a bold graphic that still has a subtle way about it if you know what I mean. Am I making any sense here? At all? Hello?

I am happy! Plus there is one less thing in my craft/computer/spare/storage room.
Which happens to be next on the list for a make-over of it's own.

Perfect for that room and that bed! It needed a little bit of 'rustic-ness' in there, and you did it perfectly!

OH BETH I LOVE IT and especially because I was born, raised and moved back here to Cedar Rapids, Iowa....the Quaker Oats Plant is right downtown C.R.
So fun seeing a vintage piece of my history.
Thanks for sharing,
