We recently decided it was about time to upgrade to a king size bed. The queen was getting a little bit crowded with two humans and three dogs. I wanted to get a platform bed so we would just have a mattress, no box springs. However, we didn’t want one that was too low to the ground, and we wanted to have a little room underneath to use as storage. So, we decided on the Tall Wood Bed Frame
with the Window Headboard
from West Elm.
I am loving the new bed. I love the platform, it makes our old mattress feel somewhat better (we are still waiting for the new one to come in), and I really like being lower to the ground. The dogs can actually get up on the bed without the unsightly plastic doggie stairs.
I can still slide my two under-the-bed storage containers (from Target) under the bed and they are completely hidden. This is where I store my off-season clothes.
We also got this Narrow Leg End Table
from West Elm. I originally wanted one on each side, but there just isn’t enough room in our bedroom so we ended up with just one. Casey’s side of the bed has a box window so he has plenty of room to put a drink or book there in lieu of a nightstand.
The current lighting situation in our bedroom is terrible so I am going to put a table lamp on the nightstand and possibly a floor lamp or another table lamp in the other corner of the bedroom. I’ll see how that works and add more, if needed.
I am really liking this table lamp from West Elm for the nightstand.
The next bedroom furniture that I want to replace is my dresser and TV stand (all the old furniture is being moved to the guest bedroom). I am hoping to replace both with a longer dresser like the one below from West Elm. I am thinking we can put our TV on top of it, instead of having a separate TV stand.
Right now, this is the only TV in the house since the basement is still unfinished. Not sure what to do with the tivo box and DVD player in the interim but once the basement is done we will only need the tivo box upstairs. I am hoping I can think of a way to hide it so that I don’t have to add additional furniture to the bedroom.
On one side of the bedroom, we have an outcropping with three windows. I would love to make it a little reading nook with a slipper chair and side table. I am in love with this side table from West Elm but wondering if it would be possible to make something like this ourselves?
I love the slipper chairs from Target, but would have to find something that doesn’t clash with the print on our rug. None of the colors they currently have are exactly right.
Finally, I would like to add a stand alone mirror on the other side of the bedroom, like this one at West Elm.
