I love how it has turned out. It makes the room feel so much more complete. It also makes me want to change our bedding. The turquoise Euro's that I photographed are actually from my guest bedroom and are just to show how big the back pillows SHOULD be. Right now, I only have king size shams and need to make Euros to add some height to my bedding.
I bought these velvet fabrics at Scott's in Atlanta a couple of years ago and have never used them. I'm so glad that I have waited- -I can't wait to make them and finish the bed up!
Not to bore you with the step by steps, I have posted another post that goes more into detail in case you want to make one yourself!
It was a fun project, even with the hang-ups, but it is so rewarding when it is finished and you are able to enjoy your hard work!
