Things are about to change! This year, I have been on the need for change (not the change I always want to do like highlights in my hair which never happens) but a change of furniture in my bedroom. Now, stubborn me (yes I admit I can be stubborn) does not like change all the time. I have had my double size, silver, tween/tween bed for at least six to seven years and you can bet that I bought it from IKEA. However, over the twelve to fourteen moves, it just couldn't keep up anymore.
Determined me, (which could look like being stubborn) was pretty sure I could keep my bed which is being held up by four out of eight screws and wood slates until I move again. Others in my family dropped hints (aka said it straight to my face) that is was time for me to get a new bed. After some thought, I decided that it was time for a young, grown up, stylish bedroom to match my lifestyle!
To help me bring my vision to life, I had to create a plan!
Finding the right bed frame was a mission, especially when you only want a wingback style bedframe that is grey (to honor the silver of my bed) and very affordable. With my small budget, I could not afford the bed of my dreams even if it was at its lower price. In order to not feel too sad, I promised myself that I would buy it when I get my own place. I did, however, found this Bedframe at Wayfair. The price fit nicely into my budget and it is a great compromise to what I originally wanted. To top it off, I wanted a new Duvet cover. If I can't get all white then I can settle with this cute, white and grey print from IKEA.
My wall above my bed needs a pop of inspiration and this is where XOXO Art comes in. I love the gold of the word. I am still debating on finding some inspirational words to go with it or if I am going to create my own version of it. Along with a pop of inspiration, comes a pop of color. Abstract Art has been something I have been secretly loving but have done nothing about. I saw this on Etsy and just love everything about it. It is affordable and there is not shipping because you can just print it out.
I have learned that the lovely side table I have would not longer fit beside my new bed so to make up for that, I found this Lack Shelf. It is the perfect size to fit in that tight spot by the bed and it doesn't cost much. What I also like is that it floats in the air so it will give that side of the bed a more airy feel than the cluttered mess it is now. On top of the new side table needs a Lamp, just to balance with the other side of my bed.
Lastly, I am a girl who loves under the best storage because I never have space for all my things. The new bed does not have as much space like my old bed so I knew that the underneath my bed would need something to hold a few things. Mesh Basket work great as under the bed drawers/ storage and only cost $7.00.
Now you saw the plan, I can't wait for you to see the finished project. Stay tune!
