Tailoring a Bed Skirt
We have an all-foam mattress which rests its weary flesh on a wooden frame that doesn't play well with bed skirts.
Here's an older picture of our room, and you can see the disaster that is the bed skirt. Frumpy and dumpy and grumpy.
Here, take a scandalous peek under my skirt. I dare you.
This always happens as well:
I'd always planned on doing something about the skirt, but this happened.
Getting himself trapped, with no escape in sight.
So I did.
I threw the new, offensive bed skirt on the floor. The floor was probably dirty, but I most likely didn't care. Perhaps grease spots will haunt my future.
Philly took me on a date to Home Depot where we bought a piece of luan and cut it to fit the sides and foot of the bed frame. I wrapped it with bug-infested (they were dead) quilt batting.
We've ordered the replacement part for the original. Now we have serious back-up.
Oh, happiness abounds.

What a simple solution to the problem! Say goodbye to the frumpy outdated bed skirt and hello to a streamlined bedframe. This gives the room such a modern polished look. Not to mention it is perfect for someone who does not have experience sewing like me!
