Does anyone else out there hate bed skirts as much as I do?
Chloe Jo's bed skirt is just a real pain. They never fit quite right so they move around. CJ's always seems to be longer on one side than the other so that I step on it. Her mattress would not stay put. The problem with her bed is that it needs a bed skirt. It has metal rails and the foundation needs to be covered.
I finally got fed up with it and decided to try to fix it.
This happened a few weeks ago and my fix seems to be working very well!
The first thing I did was to go get my staple gun. I stapled the bed skirt in the corners. I started with the corners so that everything else would line up correctly. I made sure to staple through the seam so the staple would have more to go through and it would have less chance of tearing. I made sure to staple into the edge of the foundation so it had the wood to hold it.
I then stapled every few inches around the rest of the bed skirt.
I then tackled the issue of the mattress moving around every time CJ climbed into her bed or an adult sat on it. I decided to get 2 rolls of no-slip grip and I stapled those onto the foundation. The great thing about this is that it all comes up easily if we decided to change the bed skirt.
Since I did this, CJ's mattress and bed skirt have stayed in place!
I know this method was probably not the "professional" way to fix this problem, but it seems to be working perfectly!
