Hi from Ten Gables Cottage,
I got the nicest duvet cover at Goodwill and it had the new tag on it, from Pottery Barn. I washed and ironed it and then discovered that it was for a standard bed and mine is queen. So I used it crosswise! It works great, but comes down a little way from the pillows. Not to worry, I bought some cheap fabric at Walmart and made pillow shams and they cover the part of the bed that the duvet doesn't. I love the look!
By the way, the bed was bought at our local auction. I love going to auctions, but stay away as much as possible because things go cheaply but there is only so much room at Ten Gables and it is filled!
Have a great day!
