This is our current bed:
I feel it’s too dark and cold for my taste now. And, it’s massive. That’s the other part of the deal — our bedroom (and house) is very small. We’re going to be staying her a while longer, so we’re trying to make the best of the space and create a lot more storage. Thank goodness I’m married to a handy man carpenter! So, back to the bed…..we have matching night stands and dresser to go along with it. We’re selling it all on Craig’s List pretty soon. I want our new look to not be so matchy-matchy. Originally, I wanted JT to build me a bed EXACTLY like this:
I still love it. But, recently JT came up with this design on his own that solves another space problem:
What do you think of the design?! It’s growing on me. I think it can be really cool if done right. I’m thinking a glazed Ecru with some really fun hardware from Anthro! Make it sort-of vintage-looking….
I like it because I want as much wall space in our bedroom as possible and this gives us a way to NOT have a dresser. I’m thinking that when we have another baby one day down the road in this house, we’ll set up nursery in our room for a while and I want a place for a little crib and rocking chair over in the corner nook. So, what do you think? Let me know your thoughts. I know this design isn’t politically correct (and the fact that it’s drawn on a pharma note pad doesn’t help either!), but it could be cool and solves our problems.
Here are some other headboard shapes I like. I wouldn’t want ours covered in fabric, but I love these shapes. I can’t decide which to go with….
