I love my bedroom. It didn’t do very well in a contest I entered it in on the Apartment Therapy website but I don’t care. It is my haven. I love being in bed cuddling with my two cats and the little dog. Lately I have even let the big dog up for some cuddle time but only on the day the sheets are getting changed. I had fun making the huge headboard. So much fun I have decided to toss it. I got a notion to move things around and the new spot for my bed is in front of a window so this headboard won’t work. It will need to be something open and low. I love an excuse to go shopping in vintage/antiques stores. I went to lots and lots. I found nothing. Did you know there are almost no headboards in vintage stores? I don’t know why I didn’t check craigslist to begin with but boy, there are a ton of headboards on there. Just look!
My bed is a queen but I don’t mind a little overhang….I hope. The woman I bought it from was so sweet. One never knows who is going to answer the door when on a craigslist adventure. My husband always worries about me and I have to leave him the address and phone number of the places I go.
Stay tuned for more makeover magic. I still have to pick new window treatments, curtain rods and bedskirt. Please try to talk me out of painting the room if that comes up…. it probably will. I hate painting. I think I am going to repaint. ahhhh
