Bedspreads

Paint By Threads specializes in creating bedspreads that are simple; showcasing clean straight lines and seams which is essential to accentuating an Arts and Crafts bed. A central motif provides interest and color. Bedspreads are coverlet or throw style and include a 21-inch drop at the sides and end of bed, and have a traditional pillow tuck at the top. Duvet style bedspreads are also available and include a cotton or linen backing with a button closure at the top for insertion of your favorite down comforter for those cool winter nights. Custom bedspreads can be created to coordinate with a wall paper or wall stencil design.
