So, our bed frame is made of various lumber pieces and sits taller than most. It’s been an awesome spot for extra storage. However, it’s also impossible to find a bed skirt to cover up said storage of awesomeness.
I dug around at Joann for some cheap upholstery fabric. They have some that is red-tagged at only $6/yard, which is even better when you have a 50% off coupon. I needed something white and heavy for a crisp, tailored look. I finally found it (with help from Miss Beverly) in the drapery liner section. Score, it was only $6.99/yard. I bought 3.5 yards and a spool of 1/4 inch heat and bond.
I cut my pieces …
Then I ironed their hems…
Once I got the three hems done, I super-steamed and ironed them so that they would bond really well.
Then I took everything into my room and attached it to my bed with a staple gun. If my hems weren’t perfectly even it didn’t matter because I could adjust their height when stapling. :D How sweet is that?
Next project, a padded headboard.
