“Mancave!” my son shouted, “Game room!” Those were suggestions shouted out by my son when he discovered his sister was going away to college. He couldn’t wait to get her out the door and implement his plans. I was more cautious and waited until she came home from college during Christmas break stating she would be staying in St. Louis year round. “Office,” I decided. We proceeded with our plans on converting the room, painting the walls a creamy, soft beige, adding a desk, office chair, and television cabinet. I planned to add a daybed, which could double as a bed when my daughter came home and as a sofa for watching television or using the laptop. Plow and Hearth sent a lovely Twin Cotton Quilt with Tradional Puckered Matelasse Patterns to cover our daybed.
Then our plans went slightly awry. Our daughter was diagnosed with Hashmoto’s disease and had to come home, bringing our plans for the office to a screeching halt. We had to convert back to a bedroom for the present time and I’ve haven’t been able to add the daybed yet. I will get it in there! I will! In the meantime, I placed the quilt on my bed for display.
The twin size is 68” in length and 86” in width. I have it on my queen sized bed and it covers the entire top so it would fit generously around a twin bed. I plan to wrap it around the mattress to add a polished look. Available in six colors, blue, brown, purple, green, ivory and red, I chose brown because my kids (and I) have a bad habit of propping our feet up on the couch. I knew the brown would hide dirt and footprints between washings. The spread is available in full/queen and king and a matching bedskirt can be purchased.
I like the casual look of this spread and the ease of cleaning, something every mom knows about! I can throw it in the washer and dryer whenever it is dirty and it still comes out looking nice. Like all the Plow and Hearth products I have tried so far, this one is well made and looks like it will hold up to wear and tear dished out by the kids.
