The Making of a Bed, Part Un: The Bed.
First came first: the bed frame.
Ikea's all fine and good in the post-grad years. But several years later, I needed a step up. Enter Pottery Barn's baby sister company, west elm.
I have now ordered [drum roll please] this bed....in Queen size!
Am I forgoing a headboard which may or may not work for me. Darn straight I am. Headboards, I've learned, are expensive!!
Can I afford to go mattress shopping right now? No.
Am I excited as anything to buy new bedding which I also can't afford to change the look of my apartment and give it new character? Um, yeah.
Over the next couple of weeks I will [hopefully] and slowly build my new bed. I'll document as I go (an action packed design adventure, I know!). Until then it will be my new Queen size bedframe sat upon by my old full size janky mattress and cheap sheets. And zero photos will likely be shared with you.
