When we moved back to Perth we were very harsh about what we brought. We tried to keep everything to a bare minimum to make the move easier and lessen the burden of international moving costs – which of course meant we ended up with a bit of shopping list when we got here!
But i’m not going to complain – i really enjoyed it! It was really fun to go out and purchase things for our home with older eyes. I know that sounds silly, but my tastes have changed since we were first married and first started accumulating house things, and it was really nice to have an excuse to start fresh.
I completely fell in love with this bed – but it didn’t have a headboard – which is a total bummer. I knew i wanted something a little unusual, so i left it blank for a while. Until i started trying to fit a bookshelf into our very small bedroom. We own a lot of books and special little things that i wanted in our room – and i just couldn’t fit a bookshelf in anywhere (which of course i discovered after i had shoved the bookshelf into our room). Then it hit me – put the bookshelf behind the bed! Make it the headboard. YES!
Honestly, i could not be more thrilled with this “headboard” and it didn’t cost me anything (extra bonus!).
I just love it! All the junk we usually try and cram on tiny bedside tables is easily accommodated – plus i can keep a much larger reading selection at the ready than usual (normally we both have piles of books spilling onto the floor next to the bed). I’ve got my magazines, my sewing resources, my special knick nacks – whatever random junk i decide i need!
Awesome right? I kind of love it when crazy ideas turned out well!
