My fairy godmother-in-law granted my request and look what is beautifying my bedroom now!  I just can't imagine all the time she put into it, and I completely love it.  Now what should I do to upgrade my pillows/shams?  Any ideas?
And I guess this is an appropriate time to discuss the headboard too.  I had been looking for an older headboard (with spindles) that I could paint and add to our bed. Of course Craig's is my shop of choice and when I saw this one for the big price of $15, I was sure it was the one.  So after a 45 minute trip with multiple children crammed into the van, I was able to pick it up and get it home.  Only to find out it was not actually a headboard, but a foot-board!  And it didn't even peek over the pillows.  Luckily, I have a very kind and understanding husband, who has to deal with my spontaneous decisions/off the wall visions, and he was actually able to rig something to make it work. 
And I guess I'll be on to the mirrors while I'm at it.  I started this collection about a year ago and made more trips to Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx than I had in years.  Trying it out, returning, re-buying, trying it out, returning. you get the idea.  Anyway, I settled on this configuration (for now at least).  Still trying to decide if I should paint them one color, several colors or leave as is.  Any suggestions here?
