Its a dreary day here in upstate NY. Lots of sleet and freezing rain during the night and we woke to the sound of the town sander going down the street. The sun is trying to come out, but on the whole its a bleak kind of day. I decided it was just the kind of day to sit in a cozy space and read. I often read in my guest bedroom. Its in a part of the house that is quiet and a great place to spend some alone time, reading a great book that I am enjoying, Fellow Mortals by Dennis Mahoney. I was sitting in a nice comfy chair and I looked up and in an instant I decided to redo the bed. I wanted to rid myself of the dark dank day outside and bring some brightness inside.
I walked around the house looking for some things that I could rearrange that would fit into my guest room.
I went to my living room and gathered up some pillows and a folded quilt.
I rummaged through my closet and came across some red plaid and check pillows that I usually decorate with at Christmas time and went to work on the bed.
This is the way it looked before my minute makeover. A bit boring.
With a few tweaks that took a minute and $0 dollars I got a new bright sunny bed on a not so sunny day.
