Bedding Tip: Use a Fitted Sheet Instead of a Bed Skirt

Our bedroom has been in want for quite some time. With the 20% off sale going on at West Elm, I decided to splurge and purchase a new duvet cover. I picked the one I was swooning over last year at this time, but in navy instead of citron.

Then I picked up a single fitted sheet for the box spring as well as a couple of pillow cases to match from K-mart. This is the only place I have found fitted and flat sheets sold separately. I have been on the lookout for what seems like forever. Putting a bed skirt on a sleigh bed doesn’t really work out so well.

The sheets are only 200 thread-count and are thus inexpensive – perfect for dressing the box spring! Plus, they have some fun colors!

I love the finishing touch the fitted sheet gives to our bed and I finally feel like it’s complete!
