Our second guest bedroom is lacking an identity.

Ultimately, I’d like it to have a more masculine feel. I especially LOVE this Swiss Army blanket-inspired room that Cooper Boone featured on his blog, “Cooper’s Table.”

It’s strong, masculine, and… simple!

As a start, I’ve set up a full-size bed with a few accessories. I guess you could call it, “The Land of Cast Off Furniture.”

I sorted through all of the bedding that we’ve accumulated over the years and found a queen set that will temporarily fit the bill – until I gather my thoughts and inspiration for the space.

I thought I’d share with you how I adjusted the queen bedskirt to fit the full bed. It’s a no sew solution that is completely non-committal!

Does it get any better?

Here’s the before.

Continue to pinch, fold, and pin the fabric down the length of the skirt.


And here’s the after!

It’s now a perfect fit!

This solution worked especially well with this style of bedskirt. The gathers help to disguise the folds at the foot of the bed.

I hope this is helpful! I’m always eager to use what I already have on hand. I was so pleased to customize the fit without sewing a seam!

I hope your week is off to a great start!
