Earlier this week, Eric and I headed out in search of a new comforter for our bed. We bought our bed 5 years ago...and never bought bedding for it. Instead, we used an old quilt, because we couldn't decide on anything. Well, everytime I washed that quilt, it would get a new tear...and was pretty much just falling apart. We went everywhere on Monday and finally found this comforter set at Home Goods. It's not a color we would have normally chose, but, we're trying to lighten and brighten things around here so we went for it. And, I love it! It's so soft and luxurious...I feel like we're sleeping in a fancy hotel...compared to our old ratty quilt! I wish I had a picture of how it looked before, but I was so anxious to see what the new bedding looked like I forgot to get a picture. And now, there's no way I'm going back! You'll just have to take my word for it!
(Eric made our nightstands)
Our conversation two nights ago on the couch...as we sat watching House Hunters...like we do every night at 10pm... for the last 15 years. We're very exciting people!
Me: I love our bedding!
Eric: I love it too! Good choice Babe!
Me: I'm thinking I might need to paint our bed.
Me: It doesn't really go with black.
Eric: It looks fine with the black.
Me: I think it would look better if the bed was white.
Me: I can paint the nightstands too.
Me: And we definitely need new lamps. Silver w/ white shades.
Me: Maybe I'll ask my blog friends what they think.
Eric: Oh no! They love a good before and after...of course they will tell you to paint it!
So, don't you think painting the bed and nightstand will brighten things up a bit and be a nice change? I was also wondering what color I should paint the walls...they haven't been painted in 6 1/2 years!
Any thoughts and suggestions would be much appreciated!
(at least by me, anyway!)
