Happy Friday eve, folks! Who’s excited for the weekend? This girl right here is! I don’t even have any plans. I’m just looking forward to not having to get up early and head off to work. At least that’s what I tell myself. I always have the best intentions of sleeping late on weekends, but for some reason, I can’t make myself sleep past 6:30 am. What’s up with that? I think I’m just excited to get up and do all the things I truly love, but never have time for during the week. Last week, I showed you all our DIY bed frame and headboard and promised to show you how I made the DIY bed skirt. So here we go…
I made these to fit a king size bed, which is 19 inches off of the floor. You could easily adjust the size to fit any size bed at any height.

Steps to Make DIY Bed Skirt
The first thing that I did was wash and dry my drop cloths to make them a little softer. I just put them on normal wash and dry. And I didn’t iron them because I despise ironing.
After washing and drying, lay them out lengthwise and fold them in half.
Cut the cloths in half so that you have a total of 4 – 2’x15′ strips.
Starting on the back side of the bed (where the headboard would be), I attached about 3 inches of fabric so that the corner would be completely covered. Each strip is 24″ and the height of my bed is about 19″ off of the floor. I pulled about 2 inches of fabric on top of the plywood and then let 3 inches drape on the floor. If you don’t want any to drape on the floor, just pull the fabric up on the plywood until it barely touches the floor.
Using a tape measure, I pleated every 4 inches and placed a staple on the top of each folded pleat to keep it in place.
Once I attached the bed skirt completely around the bed, I placed a queen size top sheet on top of the plywood. I folded the edges under and stapled the sheet down to protect the mattress from sitting directly on the plywood.
That’s it! This was super easy to make. Especially for those of us who do not sew.
If you are wanting to make anything smaller than a king, you could probably get away with using only 1 drop cloth. I only used a small section of the second one. But I’m sure I’ll come up with another project soon to use up the rest of it. I’m already thinking up some Christmas ideas. 😉
I hope you all have a great weekend! I’m currently in the middle of about 5 different projects, so I know I’ll be busy working on those all weekend. But it doesn’t feel like work when it’s what you love to do.
