Coastal Master Bedroom - Week 3 Update

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

This is going to be a really brief post. I am behind on my updates because Lucas turned 10 last week! We celebrated his birthday with his neighborhood buddies having a sleepover (it actually became a sleep under) then on Tuesday with a soccer game followed by lobster pasta and Nothing Bundt Cakes with Grandma. Wednesday morning at 6am Lucas had 9 teeth pulled!  He was such a champ! Then Nana and Papa came to celebrate with the birthday boy Thursday evening.  He said it was the best birthday ever, even with getting teeth pulled. He's the sweetest kid.

I spent most of the weekend sewing these custom pillows. I think it took me 4 hours to make this bolster pillow. 

This was my first time making a bolster pillow. Let me tell you, it's hard! It was worth the effort though because they typically cost between $150-200. With one yard of fabric and stuffing, my total was $41. I already had thread, cording, and a pool noodle so I don't calculate those into my cost. Yes, I stuffed the pillow with a pool noodle cut to size and wrapped in 2 packages of quilt batting.

The striped pillow reverses to a woven blue chenille. I like it on both sides.  Hopefully, my custom curtains will come soon and then I can do a full reveal.

We found this mirror at HomeGoods. What do you think? Should we hang it over the bed and replace the lamps?
