This past weekend I got to spend a few hours with my friend, Liz Marie! Did you know she moved back to Michigan?! Well, I was on her side of the state this weekend for a family Christmas get together, so I made sure to carve out some time to see her! Liz and I met through blogging and we finally got to meet in person at Haven last summer. When we saw each other this weekend, it was like we picked up where we had left off 6 months ago! Liz is so sweet and just totally down to earth and relaxed!
My husband and I just adored Liz’s house and on our way home that night, we couldn’t stop talking about all the things we’d like to do to our own home. She really inspired us and gave us the little kick in the butt we needed to get started on some things we’ve been putting off. And she didn’t even know it!
On our way home, my husband randomly suggested switching out our bed. We’ve had a sleigh bed for most of our marriage, but we had this Ikea iron bed frame in our basement from a guest bed we used to have downstairs. He suggested switching the beds out and I thought why not. So when we got home and put the kids to bed at 10 o’clock, we got started! No time like the present, huh?!
We have a tiny bedroom and I never realized until now how big our old bed was. It took up a ton of room! The room feels so much bigger now, I just love it!
Here’s a “before” picture. Not a huge difference in pictures, but I can tell in real life. Just to give you a reference, the old bed stuck out even further than the end of the bench (pictured above)!
And…back to the new bed! Ahhh, so much better! We really just needed a change! This bed just feels “right”!
I’m so happy with our bedroom now! Who knew switching out the bed could make such a huge difference?! I keep walking into the room smiling because I’m just so thrilled with it!
