“Grown Up” Furniture

Friday, February 27, 2009

It’s here!

The drop off time was 7 am to 10 am and so we got up an hour earlier (6:30 am) to take showers.  And good thing too, because they came at 7:30 am.  Took them about 45 minutes to put it all together.

Wow!  It all came together so nicely.

First of all, this is the FIRST real bedroom furniture that either Kimm or myself has ever bought.  Everything before this has been second hand.  It all looks so new!  I’m almost half afraid to use it!  Second, it’s a tight fit–these bedrooms in the older houses are small!  But I like it–it’s not too crowded for us.  It’s cozy.

So without further adieu, here are the pictures.  Please keep in mind that they DO NOT do justice to how it really looks (why is that??).


The bed and nightstands…




Close up of the headboard–this will be so nice to lean up against while reading before bed 🙂  ALSO–these are the chocolate brown 300 count sheets, whoo-whoo!!


The bureau–Kimm’s–see Mr. Man walking by on the bottom!


The chest and mirror–mine (see Charlie’s little tail)


Charlie REALLY likes the new furniture!!  Look at him stretch!  Oh, you can see me too!

I have to say we feel really proud.  The color of the wall, with the dark wood furniture looks great and the shade of blue we choose goes so well with the comforter.  It’s just so relaxing.

We have just a few little things we want to do now–a tall plant in the corner between the bureau and chest, some art work on the wall, a vase with some flowers for the chest, and some knick-knacks. And we still have to transfer our clothes into the bureau and chest–hopefully it all fits.  We’ll be doing that tomorrow.

It’s going to be so different actually sleeping in a bed tonight.  I just hope we get some sleep.  I only say that because MADELINE, who was being so good for almost a month, WOKE US UP last night when we were in the master bedroom.  So not much sleep last night.  Not sure why she decided to do that after all that while.  Let’s hope it was a one time thing.
