Chris and I have considered this for a long time, but this year was the year we finally got around to it.
We decided to get new, matching bedroom furniture.
For the first time in our marriage.
Our bedroom was a hodge-podge of family furniture (including this dangerously sharp-handled piece that sent my sleepwalking self to the emergency room),
An unused cat perch,
And cheap furniture that we bought when we got married or even had before that:
And so, we set out to actually have a MATCHING bedroom. It was an arduous process, involving visiting EVERY furniture store in Birmingham.
However, it was greatly aided by the fact that Chris and I apparently have the EXACT same taste – a very handy thing for a marriage.
But, we finally got it (at Mazer’s – and they were great to deal with, as opposed to the nightmare that we went through to get Ali’s big girl bed from Ashley Furniture).
Here’s the before:
The mirror that Chris bought me for Christmas matches perfectly:
The one thing I really love about it is the size – the furniture is all much bigger and taller than our old pieces, which, oddly enough, makes the room feel bigger.
Now we just need to get the walls decorated. Any suggestions?
