Girly-Girl dust ruffle



I was out blogging about and I came across this amazing idea over at Gray Matters She used those cheapy dress-up tu-tus that you can find at Wal-Mart to make a dust ruffle for her little girl's bed. Genius! After searching madly for a few days I finally gave up...tu-tus must be a popular item here. I ended up just buying about five or six yards of tule, some satin ribbon, and some sparkly buttons. I used my hot glue gun for assembly. I don't think the finished product is quite fluffy enough so I am going to buy a few more yards of material and add it to my ruffle. Please ignore the ugly office-style carpet, it's standard in all military housing, but hey, at least I can paint the walls! I'm thinking...area rugs, yes lots of area rugs!

Other than that, it's been a pretty uneventful weekend here...the entire family is sick, so we've been hanging out at the house in our mu-mus, watching TV and cuddling The Bella. I guess it's not so bad...

I've seen that tile...they put it in the older housing here in HI...I just want to know what they're thinking when they build these houses? it's so depressing...the next post we go to we decided we are def. buying or renting a house. I guess I should count my blessings though, the Army and Marine housing is way, way worse.

Looks cute, but I'ml with you, I think it needs a few more layers to be "PERFECTO"

Oh, I really like this idea. I saw something similar at a really expensive baby boutique when Lagan was about to be born! Great idea! :)
