Wait Until You See This Trick for Creating a Vintage Duvet - Coffee!
Do you love the look of vintage linens? But not the price?
I found the trick to creating vintage linens - cold coffee and a washer!
The Before: A fun duvet and shams with the map of old NYC - from H&M.
The After: A stunning vintage-look duvet. And all it took was one pot of cold coffee and the washer.
So very easy! With no one more surprised than me at the beautiful results!
I used a duvet and shams from H&M - depicts Old NYC but doesn't look very "old."
This trick works best on cotton, linen, and natural fabrics.
A pot of strong coffee is needed! Brew a pot of coffee and let it steep to cool.
Pour the coffee into the detergent dispenser of the washer. Also add a bit of detergent in this step.
Once your bedding, coffee, and bit of detergent are added, set your machine to a normal wash and run it for one cycle.
After washing, hang your bedding to dry it. It should already look pretty vintage-y but you'll notice the effects more once it's had time to dry.
Set your bed and enjoy the vintage vibe your new bedding gives to your bedroom!
