New Bed (Minus a Headboard)
I am beyond excited about our new bed frame and our new bedding. Prior to last week we had a West Elm queen size platform bed. There was just one problem. We have a king size mattress. Long story but we needed new mattresses a couple years ago so we chose to buy king size with the hopes of upgrading to a king size bed. It worked on the queen size bed because the wood frame stuck out enough to hold the larger mattress, it just wasn’t ideal. Annnnyway. I’m happy to have a bed frame that is meant for our king size mattress.
We opted for West Elm’s simple white bed frame without a headboard attached. A couple weeks before Christmas they had a bedroom furniture sale so we snagged it while it was 25% off. I wanted a basic frame that wouldn’t dictate the style of our room. I can see us having it for a long time, no matter how many times I want to change the look of our room.
I bought the bedding during another one of West Elm’s sales back in July. We’ve just been waiting to use it until we got started on our bedroom. It was sort of like motivation to get the ball rolling. Only it didn’t work that well seeing as that was six months ago. Regardless, I love the pinstripes and subtle yellow trim and I’m very happy to finally be using it.
Eventually we’ll add a wood headboard, I’m just not sure when. We have a plan of action in terms of what wood we’re going to use and how we’ll attach it to the wall. That’s a start, right?! In the mean time, I’ll be enjoying the progress we’ve made so far!
