This blog has been a lot of things. A love story. A new adventure. The journey of a woman becoming comfortable with who she is and what she believes in.

I don't write here as often as I used to, but the stories I've left on these pages have made me who I am. I come back occasionally to put down thoughts and stories.

(Sorry for the tiny photo)
With all this talk of moving, Brent and I have one wish - a king size bed. We love having the children in bed with us in the morning, (both usually wake up between 4-6am and we put them in bed with us to snooze a bit longer) - but we are beyond cramped in our queen. I have been on the hunt for a unique King headboard at a reasonable price - and while I love the clean aesthetic of some of the lower, platform styles - I haven’t found one yet that would compliment the vintage vibe of our bedroom furniture.
Then, I came across this monstrosity. A horrifying mix of wood and gaudy 80’s design- and I want it bad. How absolutely GORGEOUS would this be painted white or yellow and paired with a bunch of vintage pillow cases and a colorful quilt?  Have no idea where we could even store it until we move into a new place - but mama wants!
Still not sold on my vision? Just you wait - If I can score this thing for cheap, it’s gonna be awesome.
Love,
M

  2. among-wildflowers said: Could be great! My headboard was also very 80s but after a coat of white paint it’s perfect. Can’t wait to see the makeover if you get it!
  3. jedbartlets said: my husband and I took some of the ugly decor pieces off our country looking mantel, painted it white and it looks so good! I see your vision!
  4. wheremygreengrassgrows said: our king-sized was the best thing we ever purchased! plenty of room for everyone :)
  5. greskoed said: I like where your creative mind is at! (I live close and have lots of storage if you find you need it)
  6. tehvalerie said: I’ve thought many times about buying furniture as I find it and renting a storage unit until we buy a house. If it’s short term (fingers crossed) it could definitely be worth it to get something you love!
  7. asitypethis said: Painted white with accents of faint yellow would be really nice!
