    We Bought A New Bed! Check Out Our Furniture Picks

    The universe listened! Ok, maybe my husband did. LOL! The other day, I wrote a post about how much I hated my bedroom. It has been in a “transition” phase for a few months now. We don’t have any pictures up, our bed frame is super dark and there’s so much work that still needs to be done.

    After a quick discussion last night, Bill finally agreed to move forward with some big purchases. He wanted to wait until a few more gigs came through, but I insisted that we throw caution to the wind and hope for the best. I found this amazing bed –Skyline Furniture Nail Button Tufted Wingback Bed in Linen Talc –  on Overstock. I had a 15% off coupon PLUS received another 10% off because I used Raise gift cards. I got the best deal I possibly could. At least, I think I did???? I LOVE the look of the tufted wingback. I found a bed very similar to this one at my local mall for almost triple! We obviously couldn’t justify that expense – but it gave me the inspiration I needed to find a look that worked for our budget. 

    I had a hard time with the end tables. I wanted to get white but I felt like it would be too LIGHT and not have enough dimension. So, I opted for a silver version instead. This Furniture of America Lorrence Contemporary 3-drawer Mirrored Crocodile Textured Nightstand FEELS perfect. I hope I am right! I’m not 100% though because I really have to see everything in one place and alongside my new wall color.

    Buying furniture online is HARD.

    In the end, I want a very LIGHT feel and I think I accomplished that with these purchases. My carpet is also light by the way. And just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, my bedroom walls are a bluish grey. We shall see????? I’m so nervous! Everything is coming in 4-5 weeks. So, I guess we have time to figure out what we are going to do on the walls.
