Makeover: Bed Edition
I feel like it's pretty normal for me to blog about some kind of new bedding this time of year. I guess it's my way of getting through the long, cold winters by bringing some color into my decor.
A few weeks back I posted on facebook that my bed was broken. We've had the same bed frame for a very long time and it was a hand-me-down at that. I was a little bit glad inside when it broke because I realized I'd finally be getting a bed! I've had my eye on this head and foot board at IKEA for about two years. This year it dropped in price by like $100 so I knew this was the one that I wanted.
Colin trusted me enough to send me shopping by myself. I even loaded the thing into the car all by myself! Colin put the whole thing together and I love it! I love the way it looks and we already had the matching bedside tables and lamps. Now all I needed was some really pretty bedding.
Last year I bought this set from Kohl's but I ruined it in the washing machine to a point beyond repair. I had a gift card from Christmas to Macy's from my father-in-law and held onto it until after we purchased the bed. I found this awesome set worth $270. in the clearance bin for $70.! I was really excited. I threw some of the shams and accent pillows from the old set with it and I totally love the whole ensemble. I don't love the chocolate brown wall in our room but I'm too lazy to paint over it. This set goes so much better with the whole room and I feel much more like it's a retreat than what it was before. Now if my children would just stay out of our room!
