Score! Vintage Linens

I know this is not everybody's thing.  In fact, I'm sure plenty of people are adamantly against it.  But I love vintage linens.  Especially crazy flower-power ones with plenty of orange and yellow.  And then I like to mix them all together on the same bed.  See?

Yes, they're super wrinkly.  I refuse to iron my pillowcases.  Sorry.

I went thrifting in Seattle and Tukwila last weekend and had pretty awesome luck.  Then I went thrifting in McMinnville [Oregon] and also had awesome luck.  It's been a good week!  I have more scores to show you, but one thing at a time.

As I'm sure you know, we painted our bedroom grey before we moved in.  And THIS is about what it has looked like for the year+ that we've lived here.  But guess what?  I'm going to repaint it.  I know, I know, I'll probably get reamed for this.  But it's my bedroom and I have to sleep in it, and I'm tired of the grey! 

You're going to laugh when you hear what color I'm painting it.  Yup, that's right.  WHITE.  Sue me.  I love white rooms.  Remember those awesome vintage linens?  They're going to pop in the fresh white bedroom, and I have a couple other projects in my brain that's going to make the bedroom even awesome-er.  For those of you attached to the grey and yellow, enjoy it for a couple more weeks.  I won't be repainting until next month ;).
