(This is a totally frivolous post, but it’s Sunday morning, so that’s what you’re getting.)
The bed Boy and I sleep on is the bed that I have had since I was 16 years old. I got it when I got too long for the single bed my parents had purchased for me when I was 2, so when I get a bed, I make sure the thing lasts.
A while ago, Boy and I started to talk about possibly getting a new one since the rod-iron head board is kind of crappy (anytime we sit down on the bed, it clangs of the wall, to the point we’ve had to put pads and socks on it to keep it from marking the wall) and the mattress has seen better days.
But when we started talking about replacing the bed, we also started thinking about the dressers. I hate our dressers. When we got them at Ikea when we moved in together three years ago, they seemed like a good idea. They were modern-looking, they were stylish and they were, most importantly, cheap. But practically the second we got them in there, they sucked. It was hard to open them, they didn’t want to fit together and when you pulled them open, the fronts would pop off and the clothes would fall out. We still have these things, but I would ultimately much rather take an axe to their stupid, $h!tty exteriors and burn them in Boy’s father’s country firepit.
Anyway, yesterday when we were out and about in the city, we stopped by the furniture store Boy used to work at and we both kind of fell in love with a new set. We haven’t bought them yet because we’re not quite ready to drop that kind of chunk of change right now (we just finished paying for wedding stuff and Boy hasn’t dealt with the tax blow he will most certainly face when he has to deal with his first year as an independent contract worker), but we’re looking towards our anniversary in the summer as the start of Operation: Bedroom Makeover!
So, without further ado, our prospective bedroom set:
The beside table (we currently do not have bedside tables and use the top of the dressers which is weird and high.)
The lingerie chest.
The five drawer high chest or . . .The six drawer low chest. We might go with this one just because it might be nice to not have everything in the room going vertical.
It’s a ways off but the idea of change is a good one. Got anywhere in your house you want to spruce? What is it?
