A Little Pinspiration!

So we moved to California to escape the Washington gloom. But even California has gloomy rainy days (gasp! weird, I know) and every time it rains I am reminded how much I want a pallet doormat. Our doormat turns into a soggy mess. We have tons of scrap wood at camp and I am ready to turn this
our current doormat, drowning in the rain

into this







Also, I am going to attempt to make my own bedskirt. We put our bed on risers since we have a miniature house with not a single closet for storage, and under our bed stores everything. Our bedroom currently looks like this:

and I want to add more yellow. I love that soft blue but its in our living room too so I need to brighten up one to also differentiate haha.

What do you think of this fabric? I would make coordinating pillow also. Opinions?

Yes, it's a curtain from World Market. But I like it! :)

i LOVE those curtains! i've used world market tablecloths as curtains before and you can buy the napkins and make pillows out of them. i just buy one napkin per pillow and sew a neutral linen color on the back! Can't wait to see it all finished!

The doormat is adorable!!! I love it! And I think pillows with that fabric would look so cute in your room. I'm terrible at interior design so I'm always on the lookout for cuteness I can add.
