After 2 years of having the same bedding I was ready for a little bit of a change, especially after moving in with my parents while we build.
I fell in love with the look of the linen drop ruffle bedding that has the overflowing hemline. The one thing that I wasn’t a huge fan of was the price. Every single one I found was at least $200 for a king size. My budget just wasn’t ready to take a hit like that so I went on a hunt for a cheaper, but similar option that could get me by until I can afford the real deal that I have been drooling over.
I made several google searches and came across one that was made by Lush and did I mention it was UNDER $100?? It wasn’t made from linen like the ones that I had fallen in love with, it was actually polyester, but I was willing to give up the linen fabric to have the same style I fell in love with.
Several different big box retailers carried this brand, but unfortunately every single last one was sold out of the white in a king size. (Overstock, Wayfair, Kohl’s, Amazon) This is one time that I was actually wishing I had a queen size bed…ok, that only lasted a minute.
Totally off subject, but if you are married I highly suggest upgrading to a king size bed. Trust me. It will change your marriage and attitude towards one another. I now don’t want to kick my husband every morning for stealing the covers, moving through the night, or breathing directly in my face. Now we both have our own space and can sleep like a baby with no personal space issues.
Ok, back to the bedding.
Soo I found the cheaper alternative, but of course with my luck it was all sold out. So I signed up for the restock notifications and waited
patiently…not so patiently. FINALLY, I got the glorious notification that Target (online only) had finally restocked, but they didn’t have white, only ivory. Of course my luck. So I patiently waited for the color I wanted to come back in stock. So I ordered the ivory against my better judgement. Of course it came in and I wasn’t totally in love. I got online and of course Target restocked the white (that I originally wanted) the same exact day my ivory bedding arrived. Sooo I packaged that bedding back up and ordered the white because I knew I would never really love the ivory like I would the white.
It finally arrived and I am so happy that I went with my gut and ordered the white. It looked so much better with the paint colors and decor that I already had. When I pulled it out of the package I originally thought it was super wrinkled, but after trying to steam every little wrinkle out with no luck, I realized it was supposed to be that way.
I loved our sheets that we had so I decided to keep those on our bed and I think they look great with the new bedding. (They are also from Target.)
I will say that I decided to keep my old quilt on the bed because the drop ruffles are a little long to have pulled up around you to sleep. I wanted this to be more of a decorative bedding and honestly I didn’t want me husband messing it up since it is dry clean only haha. Y’all, I seriously don’t know how he gets stains on our sheets and bedding but he does. We literally both shower and then get in bed, but it never fails there will be a stain somewhere on the bedding when I go to wash them.
At night we just fold it down to the end of the bed and have had no issues at all with it falling off.
I was going to take down the heart garland, but I just loved how sweet it looked and couldn’t make myself take it down just yet.
The chunky knit blanket is from Artizen Homes. She is currently going out of business unfortunately, but she did have some awesome deals going on. You can find a similar option here.
The two buffalo check pillow cases are from Amazon and come in other color options as well. Pillow covers are a super cheap and an easy way to change up a space. You can get them here.
Overall, I have been very happy with the bedding purchase, especially with it being under $100. It arrived perfectly and super quickly from Target.
I have linked all of the options over on the LIKEtoKNOWit app!
If the drop ruffle bedding isn’t your thing here are some other options I am really liking:
