Let me explain.
Kevin’s Mom and Dad, a sweet Southern couple, have been married over 40 years:
They have slept on the same FULL-SIZE bed for the ENTIRE forty years.
Kevin and Layla have been married five years, and have a QUEEN-SIZE bed in their Guest Bedroom, that rarely gets slept on.
You see where this is going yet? 🙂
Long story, short- this is what my Guest Bedroom looks like right now:
The size of this bed is much more appropriate to the room, than the Queen bed was.
I have plans to completely modify the look of this bed. Especially the headboard:
I’ve got an inexpensive, simple idea that is going to bring this bed into the current century. 🙂
The footboard is great the way it is…
…just needs some paint.
I love having the bed in it’s new position. It really shows off the wood wall Kevin and I worked so hard on exposing:
Since shooting this photo, I have moved the oar. It now hangs above the two windows, behind the new headboard.
I got a vintage rubber stamp holder on Ebay a while back, and can’t decide if I’m going to use it in this room, or my Office. Right now, it’s holding a photo of me and my Dad back in 1979…
…sweet photo…but would you let your 5-year old swim in water that color? <:-O
