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.

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

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?

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?
