Hello New Guest Room!
After getting such positive feedback on the bed (BTW, I LOVE this bed..I saw it at the Street of Dreams several years ago at the "Costco Home" decorated house. Who cares if it was in the little girls room? I had to have it!) I wanted to let you know it's still getting good use taking up 5/6ths of our guest room- this bed is seriously HUGE. Another interesting fact: I purchased this bed at Costco Home and had to return it immediately when we discovered it wouldn't fit in my brothers HUGE truck. I had kind of an "I want and Oompa Loompa now!" moment, and my Mom had my Uncle surprise me by picking it up the next day. Thanks Jerry!
We've already had a couple of guests since we put the room together: Scott and Bri, while they waited for their moving truck, and Jocelyn, who was interviewing at a Seattle based Ad Agency. Jocelyn will actually be staying again next weekend (is it weird that I haven't washed the sheets since the last time she stayed?) because she got the job and is moving up from Los Angeles! So exciting. I think it honestly might have had something to do with the bed ;)
Man, talking about this makes me want to curl up with a good book- any recommendations?- and take a nap. What is up with the weather lately? This is NOT what I expect from Seattle Summers. I'm just hoping it's nice this Saturday for a certain special baby shower I'm co-hosting...I'm getting really excited for it!
Oh, and while we're at it. Here's another bed in our house. This is mine and Jeff's room (can I just say that sometimes thinking about being married makes me absolutely giddy). I bought the curtains at IKEA over a year ago and was inspired to make the blue door headboard (still sitting in the garage). I bought the duvet cover at IKEA last month because I thought adding orange could be good and figured if we didn't like it I could always use it for the fabric because it was so cheap! I think it's starting to look a bit too bohemian, but I'm ok with it for the time being.
