Decorating Again

So Whit and I just bought a new bed, and we love it! It’s the first large piece of furniture we ever bought new. When we were searching, we saw this bed

And we really liked to two tall pedestal nightstands, but we wanted a padded headboard, so we passed. I was convinced we could find or make something similar. So checking out my fave site in the world, Ikea Hackers, I came across these

We plan to take out the two middle drawers to make a shelf. We will still have the two lower drawers for all our stuff. Better yet, the top opens. I’ll put a power strip in there for all our chargeable stuff! Too cool for school. They’re only $179 each! I keep telling y’all, don’t sleep on Ikea. And Ikea Hackers? Bliss!

This room will be too beautiful when I finish. We’ll have a wall of pale blue pinch-pleated drapes. ($40 a pair at JCP). And the walls will be fern green. Can’t wait to post pics!
