DIY Painted Bedding: blah, blah, blah, now whatcha got to say?

My inspiration was this comforter from Target , which is discontinued! Try as I did, I could not find another version anywhere. So I decided that I could make my own. Now let me start by saying my version is not a nice neat typeface. I was going for a hand written version and I wanted the look to be kinda sloppy, my comforter was only $22.00 so it was not going to be a big loss if this did not turn out well. I decided to use regular house paint that I had sitting around. The lesson that I learned was that you should use fabric paint and make sure you have a good paintbrush. The fabric just kept soaking up the paint causing me to repeatedly go over and over and over the lettering with another coat of paint. Another afterthought was that I just should have used bleach, but maybe not because that would have went through the other side of this reversible comforter. I am really pleased with the way this turned out. This is a awesome way to make plain old boring bedding into something special! 

The inspiration!
