There’s a lot to love about my bedroom. It’s spacious. It has a large window that lets in morning sun. The closets are big enough. And there’s an ensuite bathroom attached to it. It’s the sort of bedroom that has lots of potential. I haven’t hurried to fill it. I want to get things that I like in it. I don’t have a huge budget for stuff so it’s been the thrill of the hunt to slowly build it to a bedroom I love.
This week I had a “Yes!” moment. I found a bed that I really, REALLY liked on a local used site and the people that were selling it lived only about a ten minute drive away. I spotted the ad when it had only been up for four hours and I was only the 22nd person to look at it so I thought that maybe, just maybe, I had a chance at this dream bed. The call went through and the sellers said that since I was so close by they would give me first dibs at seeing it. Yes! You can probably foresee the ending to this already. I saw the bed, loved it even more in person and got it. Take a look:
It’s solid mahogany and dominates the space beautifully.
I love the detail on the posts.
Now to hang the chandelier, find lamps, a dresser or two and some art to fill the walls. Let the hunt continue!
*Bonus: DA loves the bed too and loves the thrifty way I’m putting this room together. Double Yes!
