With three kids and a four bedroom house, space can be tight. We love having out of town family and friends come to stay, and until recently we had one of the bedrooms dedicated just for that purpose. However, our oldest and middle sons were sharing a room at the time – and the middle would keep the oldest up all night jabbering away.
For the sake of our sanity (and theirs!), we moved each boy into their own room, leaving our oldest son’s room as the dedicated guest room when folks come to visit. However, we tried our best to theme the room in a way that did not scream 8 year old boy – and could be easily transformed when folks come to stay.
Did you know that you can design your own bedding at Shutterfly? In my mind there is nothing more inviting than an all white bed, so when designing a duvet cover on Shutterfly’s site, I went with our name and anniversary date in a dark gray font at the bottom of the duvet cover. I think it gives a farmhouse feel, but still sticks with the modern look of the DIY headboard.
The fabric of the cover is super soft – and the three year old thought it was perfectly suited for a little bounce session.
I also designed the monogram pillow sham and the photo serving tray on Shutterfly’s site. The tray is perfect for leaving out a few magazines for browsing, some water, and the TV remote for easy access. The serving tray features a photo we took of a local barn, we thought that was a personal touch those visiting might appreciate.
Don’t you just love the bold look of this duvet? What kind of custom duvet cover would you create? Photos? A graphic design? Text? Shutterfly allows you to do all of this and more on their site.
