I wanted to bring more red into the room so the dresser wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb. Ikea sells red stain that matches the dresser, so we picked some of that up a while ago in anticipation of making these boxes.
When I bought the bedding, it was on sale pretty cheap, so went ahead and bought all of what they had. So I have a couple of bed skirts, bumpers, etc. I knew I would use the fabric, so I went ahead and bought them up. I wanted to give the window valances a little pick-me-up, so we used one of the bed skirts to make a little trim for them.
