I think I am finally happy with the bed after 3 different ones in the past few years. This room seems to be the catch all from leftovers, so I try to make them work in here.
This is the bed that came from Sara's room...it was too high and I didn't like that the headboard couldn't really be seen and the fact that it took up so much space!
This was another bed we had in here too.
We made a headboard to fit right over the existing headboard because it was a low headboard too. But this bed took up way too much space as well.
So you can see how I just wasn't happy.
So that made me finally want to make the headboard that I had been really wanting to do and just go buy a bed frame.
I will say that I was irritated with myself that I had decided on 40 buttons when I started tufting....what was I thinking?! I had to make them all too...but I am thrilled now that I did!
And I couldn't be any happier! The headboard fits snugly up against the wall, the bed frame allows it to be snug too and no foot board!
I know people will cringe with the door being right beside the bed, but this is how the room was designed, never intended as a spare bedroom. I've had the bed in so many spots over the years, but this works so much better with the room layout and it's just for guests anyways.
I just love how it looks with the rest of the room...it fits right in don't ya think?!
And now I really have the space for a chair at the end of the bed and still be able to walk over to the windows to pull the shades without crawling up on the bed or stubbing my toes. It was the best decision!
I just love how it worked out in my favor!
See all of the space? Believe it or not, I actually gained over a foot by not having a headboard or a foot board.
I had to move my "always kiss me goodnight" sign though...but I really like it over the door. My guests can see it as the lay in bed. This room is super private and the quietest room in the house. Plus giving me an extra guest room making me have two!
The girls come back here every day and watch tv, play the wii or just relax....so it's their room too.
And everything stays nice and neat behind closed doors in the armoire.
This room really has a lot of space...it's 10x20 so that may give you a clue. Over the years it's been used for so many purposes. It used to have a swing, and a wicker table and chairs when the house was Mom's. Then when we moved in, we used it for a playroom for the girls. Then when Mammaw came home with us after a stay in the hospital, we added a twin bed. That bed grew to a queen then to a full. After buying the home from my mother years ago, we remodeled the whole house. I am hoping to move the door one day though...and then it will be perfect!
This piece was moved back here from Christmas from the living room...I like it so I've decided to leave it for now.
It catches and holds some of my pink that I don't want anymore in the rest of the house. Ergo the room that is a catch all.
I think I am finally happy with how it looks and functions...for now....
I'll be doing a post about how I made this headboard a little later this weekend. I'm going to rest now...my days and nights are all mixed up and I need to get back on track! Hope you all have a blessed weekend!
