Anybody remember when I was brain-storming my guest room? (posted HERE) That little room that should have been easy -breezy, gave me a load of trouble! I’m going to show you what I came up with tomorrow, but first I wanted to tell you about the no-sew bed skirt I used on the guest room bed!
I wanted to find a lace bed skirt. This one was available through Amazon for just over $100.00, but I was doing the guest room on a budget, so a hundred bucks for a bed skirt wasn’t gonna happen! I started thinking…
Do I have anything lace I could use?
I remembered an old, very stained lace table cloth that looked a lot like the one below.
The stains were in the center, not around the edges sooooo…
I measured the perfect length from the floor up to an inch onto the box springs and I held my breath and cut the table cloth!
Using masking tape, I stuck the raw edge of that table cloth to the box springs! Do. Not. Laugh. I’ve taped a home-made bed skirt to box springs before and it works GREAT! Promise
But I normally sew my bed skirts…this one was just too easy!
This kind of lace doesn’t easily unravel like a crocheted lace and the part that touches the floor is the finished edge of the table cloth!
I had 2 continuous pieces for each side and pieced 4 pieces on the end of the bed. No sewing, just slightly overlapped the pieces.
This little no sew bed skirt took 30 minutes and it was completely free, but if you don’t have a lace table cloth laying around keep an eye open for stained table cloths at thrift stores. If you like the edges and the size is big enough for your bed, you can pick one up for a song simply because of the stain!
Take a look around you may just be able to re-purpose something you no longer use!
See you tomorrow (Tuesday) when I’ll show you the finally-finished, pain- in-the-bum guest room!
