Ok..enough about that...onto the bedroom! (click here for week 1 and week 2) I feel like this post should be titled the many miles traveled. So when I last left you I was debating between beds. You know the saying the cobblers kids has no shoes. Well I can make decisions all day for other peoples homes and it comes out great...yet when it comes to making decisions for my own home I become handicap. So I knew one thing...I needed a bed...and ASAP. Nashville craigslist was proving far from successful and that's with me checking multiple times a day. So Tuesday I took a trip to Kentucky to various vintage and antique stores only to come back with no bed...ugh! I also kept going back and forth on the Overstock bed. (see bad decision making!) I then found where a blogger actually painted that exact bed gold...and it wasn't exactly what I envisioned in my head....so that made my decision. The infamous Ikea Edland bed it was. Plus if one day I do come across my dream brass bed this one will work perfectly in our guest room/ future rooms! So then comes the next day of travel...to Memphis (3.5 hours each way) to pick up an Ikea bed. I definitely questioned my sanity most of the way there and back...but felt better when the seller informed me his girlfriend drove over 6 hours to buy it originally from Ikea in Atlanta...there are other furniture crazy people out there!!!
Pictures of the actual room will be up on Thursday so make sure to check back but this is what I'm working with....
I also already had this Dwell Studio duvet set and brought it in.... I love how its neutral and a chic pattern
While this isn't the most exciting post I wanted to bring up to do date. I now need to make a trip to Atl for a few Ikea pieces (more miles!), pick out a rug and curtains, as well as some finishing touches/art...all within 15 days! ahh! I like to think of it as those times in high school I waited until the last minute to do a project but they ended up fab! Cheers (and hopes) to that!
Don't forget you can still enter my birthday giveaways that are ending each day this week!
