My new ruffly bedding

I love my bed!

Today I finally put the ruffled bed skirt I ordered months ago, on my bed. It's so perfect. I really don't know why I waited so long. I am sure if your into looking at the decorating blogs you probably have seen this bed skirt before, used as a table cloth too ( I also have another as a table cloth). But you may wonder how mine seems to have so many more ruffles. Well it's because I used two of the bed skirts. Then you may wonder then how I was able to get enough separation to layer the two bed skirts. So I will show you.

First I put the bed skirt over the box springs like normally you would do with a bed skirt. I just have bed box springs on the ground not lifted up by any frame, because I do not like little bunny Fufu to go under by bed all the time. Also I have so many memory foam mattress pads on my bed it would be to tall if the box springs were lifted at all. Having the box springs on the floor is what gives the ruffles the hanging on the floor look. In my guest bedroom I have this same bed skirt ( only one though) and the bed is lifted in that room and the bed skirt does not touch the ground, so it really depends on the look you want, I think I like hanging on the floor better but the guestroom bed skirt looks good also.


Then I put my mattress on top of the box springs and put the 2nd bed skirt over it instead of a sheet. Now here my bed still looks too short. My secret is all the memory foam mattress pads I put on next.

All the memory foam makes the bed so comfy you litterly sink in. My moms says its hard to get back up after you lay in my bed because you sink in so much Lol. But I love it, its so comfy. After I put all the memory foam back on (like 6 or 7 layers of it) I put on the sheet over all the memory foam rather then over the mattress which is being covered by the 2nd bed skirt..

That's how I create the look of so many ruffles.


Then when its all done, and all my layering is complete, you can't tell at all that the bed is just sitting on the ground, because it is plenty high enough.

The pink bedding is also new, I found it yesterday at Goodwill  it is a part of the line " Simply Shabby Chic " By Rachel Ashwell my favorite designer. My other bedding is also apart of this line and I am still keeping it too. But I am just going to switch back and forth while I'm washing one or the other. Which will be great because my bed is a king, & it's always hard to wash my comforter. It barely fits in the washer, and does not get dry in the dryer, so I hang it out to dry but it takes two or three days to do so. So it will be wonderful to have two bed spreads now.


Whats so neat about my new comforter is its reversable! The problem is I can't decide which side I like better, I love both sides. I think I am a tid bit leaning to the first side that I showed in first picture, but then again I don't know because the other side goes almost perfect with the shower curtain in Master bathroom

When you are laying in the bed you can see down into the master bathroom, and its looks nice with the comfter and shower curtain almost being matching but not quite exactly the same. My shower curtain is also a part of the same line as the bedding.
Picture above being side one picture below being side, two which side of the comforter do you think is better?




I just love how long carnations last. This one is one from my blue ball jar full in the kitchen that I showed in a picture I put on my countertop post two weeks ago. I must have bought these flowers like 15 or 16 days ago and they still look great! Oh and isn't this little pink bottle I found at Goodwill the other day just adorable?



I had to lock Bella & Lacie out while I was taking the pictures for this post, meanwhile they were scratching at the door. They always want to be in the pictures Lol, so I let them in to take a few pics hehe they are so cute.

I love my girls.
 I guess all that scartching at the door tired them out. I took these photos just now as I am laying here with them in bed, doing this post.

Sleepy Lacie.

  3. I like the one with the larger roses best, but love them both. Your bedskirt is gorgeous! You aren't kidding though--your bed is hard to get out of. I am afraid someday I might have to call 911 and say, "Help I have fallen into my daughters bed and I can't get out.." LOL Your sheet look so lovely folded over too--they look so pretty in the picture of Lacie sleeping. :)

  5. Your bedroom looks heavenly! I only have one memory foam, but even that feels so much better than the mattress alone. Both sides of the bedspread look pretty...what a good buy. You have created, and continue to create, a lovely home.

  20. Hi Janae!

    You bed is so pretty, but I can't help thinking it is like the "Princess and the Pea" bed with all those mattresses! lol.

    I also had to giggle at the fact that the doggies are front and center when trying to make the bed... my Buddy does that too. After all... the world revolves around them, or so they think!

    Thanks for sharing this at my party (last week).

    xoxo Bunny Jean

  22. Your bed looks wonderful! I like how you decorate it with the ruffled bed skirt. And this would certainly help people who want to do the same thing with their ruffled bed skirt. Anyway, how is your bed? Well, it does look comfortable. I think it’s a smart idea to put a mattress protector for the bed, to protect it from dust and other elements.

  23. Nice bed, Janae! You made it look like a princess' bed with those ruffles. It's so feminine and suits the relaxing and fresh atmosphere of your pink room. And even your cute little pups don't want to share their spaces with you? Haha!

  25. Hi Janae, I just found you and I'm so happy I did. We have a lot in common, except I'm a little older than you. I LOVE Shabby Chic and I love animals. I have a Pomeranian also plus two doxie's and one cat. As a matter of fact I'm looking for a Persian. I love your home. You do a very nice job at decorating. I really like all the pink, lace, ruffles, and flowers. I had painted my sitting room pink with white stencils all over the walls. Keep up the good work!
