Almost 14 years ago, on September 11, 2000 we added the third baby, Cooper, to our family…
We also bumped up to a KING sized bed.
It really was not a decision as much as survival tactic. Sleep was something I would have paid good money for in those days of diapers and co-parenting…and a bed big enough to house 2 adults and potentially 3 warm little bodies was more a necessity than an option.
But time does pass and all but one of the kids are now bigger than me and they don’t crawl into bed with us like the old days. That bittersweet fact combined with the desire to have more actual ROOM in my Bed-room…prompted us to downsize to a Queen sized bed. A well made, extra firm one for my temperamental old back……
..and lets just say…IF I could marry my NEW BED – I would.
nothing special just yet in the way of NEW bedding. It was quite pleased when I found TUCKED AWAY this old Pottery Barn bedding from Phoebe’s Birds Egg blue bedroom circa 2009. I had always loved this quilt set and think I might try to age it up a bit with some lamps and an upholstered headboard.The white quilt is also a Phoebe hand me down from before the twin beds. The BOYS LOVE these swiveling lamps and won’t they be happy when I surprise them with them next to their beds!
I like this aqua lamp…if the backside of it were not covered in packing tape – holding it together I might just keep it there…but it does make me think “aqua”. thoughts ?
The painting above the bed is one of my new abstracts. I actually am kind of crazy abut the colors in our room…it looks less “sweet” in the room than it does in this photo but I was not going to take any WIDE shots this morning lest you see what is just outside the photo…morning mess!
