IT HAD TO HAPPEN!

I just couldn't stand it one more day!  EVERY time I walked into my girls room, this is what I would see...a messy bed skirt!  How can something so little make an entire room look messy?!?!

My girls do make an "attempt" at making their beds every morning, (which of course I fix later), but every single time, the bed skirt is always a struggle.


I literally just ripped the bed skirts off, threw them away and was all prepared to just go buy some beds! Beds that had a headboard, footboard and rails so I didn't even need skirts.  Yes, I refinish furniture and I didn't even care, I didn't want to wait....I wanted new ones NOW!!!  But then I remembered I didn't have an extra $500, so I pulled myself together, grabbed the bed skirts out of the trash can and came up with plan B.

PLAN B

  • cut "skirt" part off 


  • with one of the best tools ever...staple that thing to the wood frame inside the box spring!




  • stand back and admire your handy work!  Why didn't I do this years ago??!!  No more issues when making bed and tucking in sheets and blankets:)
