I have done a lot with bed sheets. I am a big Ralph Lauren fan and really like his sheets, etc…
One pattern in particular finally became available at places like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and even RL Outlet stores. I bought six King-size flat sheets in this pattern. I now have drapes for 3 windows, a duvet cover, and even a couple of pillow covers made of this fabric.
What would have normally amounted to many $100’s in regular full retail prices, I was able to get about 6 flat sheets for less than $100. A little imagination and a friend who could sew made my room look great!
Also, I have a few really nice white linen tableclothes that I found in antique shops that were VERY cheap…. Not a thing wrong with the fabric, so now when I entertain, I really can make things look very nice!
It really pays to shop around and consider how to turn a simple object into something really spectacular.
