I'm quite proud of this project -- one of the first ones I've done that's actually turned out exactly how I wanted it! AND it was cheap, cheap, cheap.

Jill that turned out super cool! :) Its similar to what we want to try to do. I think the color goes great with the rest of your bedding.

WIll it be easy to change the covering? So each time you paint, etc, you can change it?

Nice Jill - I really like how it turned out! It will look nice with so many sheets - an sounds easy to re-cover when you decide you want to?

Thanks Stacy & MJ.
Yes, it'll totally be easy to re-cover. I wanted it to be washable, too. I stuck the sheet on with velcro on the back. And then sewed button holes to go over the hangers. (Really, in hindsight, I don't think we needed the hanger-things. I was worried it wouldn't be stable, but it really is.) Anyways, I can take it off in about 5 minutes.

I'm planning on painting the bedroom light gray-ish/blue-ish soon, so hopefully it'll match for a LONG time. :D
