We're pretty darn excited here, at the Cottage... My husband has been campaigning for a king size bed for a long, long time. Yeah, well........since our bed is too old to even admit to, Tilly Tightwad finally agreed. It's bad enough to have to buy a new mattress... but then it's all the other things that go along with that purchase too, right?
Have you priced king size sheets lately? Do you remember my post about making new sets of queen size sheets? Lots of ruffles and trims? That was only a few months ago. I guess I'm going to be on the hunt again, 'cuz we bit the bullet and did it.
Yep, a king size of one of these little dandies. I did quite a bit of research on the internet before we made the final decision. You know, it's a big deal getting a new bed, isn't it? First of all, there's all that chaos it creates.......then there's the money. Mattresses are just NOT cheap.
But, apparently worth it. We're sleeping better than we have in a long, long time. If I had it to do over I'd still have stuck with a queen though. I am freezing all the time... ALL the time.... and now my heater's way over on the other side of the bed. I bought myself some fleecie jammies today. :-)
So, apart from the sheets, the mattress pad, the bedspread, the bedskirt, the pillows, the pillowcases, the shams and the comforter and duvet.......there's the bed frame.
I've been crazy about my old one since the moment I saw it. I've had the same one for about twenty years. I love lots and lots of accessories, but I like the basics to be VERY plain.... I knew I'd never find another one like I had.......but guess what?
I found one I like even better. It's on order and won't be here for about 4-6 weeks, so we're sans frame for now, but isn't this one just toooo darn cute? I had seen an iron bed frame on a sweet girlie's blog and asked her if she happened to remember who made it. That little sweetie wrote me right back to tell me it was Wesley Allen. God bless her. And, naturally, I can't remember who it was........but I LOVE her! (And, if you're reading this....THANK YOU!) I don't think this is the same one she had, but it's quite similar to my original bed. But then, there are those adorable little wreaths.
I LOVE them.
And, I'll be thrilled to have my room put back together. It's not looking real cute right now.
By the way, I found the frame at Carolina Rustica. They were nice as pie and it was the best price I could find too. Plus FREE shipping (on that huge and heavy bed!!!), no tax and 12 months same as cash. Yep, that's my language.
I'll pop some pictures up when things all come together.
Have a great weekend.
