{The Master} A New Bed!

Well that was the fastest weekend ever! Why do they have to blow by so quickly?! We spent the whole time purging and packing the contents of the attic…a lot of crappola got stashed up there over the last 10 years! It looked like an episode of Hoarders. But even though we can’t move until after the shoot, we’re trying to get everything cleaned out and organized now, so the packing goes quickly when the time comes.

We worked feverishly over last month preparing our house to put on the market, and now we’re finishing up all the room makeovers. And I tell you what…nothing gets you moving faster than realizing you have to sell your house, and a magazine is coming! One of those rooms we had to kick in to high gear was the Master Bedroom. Because remember, I’d sold everything on Craigslist, and we’d been sleeping with the mattresses on the floor for weeks. All we lacked was a beer can pyramid and cinder-block side tables, and it was a straight up bachelor pad. #pagingfarmerchris Not exactly show-ready!

The deadline turned out to be a good thing, since it didn’t allow me my usual freedom of mulling over decisions for too long, and we’re no longer sleeping on the floor!

The room is mostly done now, but I still want to show you the steps of how it came to be, and give you a review of the bed. These pics aren’t super styled…just quick progress shots I snapped during the chaos.

I searched high-and-low for an upholstered bed, that was both high-quality and affordable. And because of the pitched ceilings, I wanted the headboard as tall as possible. I kept coming back to the beds on Joss & Main, but was scared to make such a big purchase online…especially sight unseen. But I finally pushed the button, and the Halifax bed arrived at our doorstep within days, and we could not be happier with it!

It took two of us, but the assembly was simple and went fairly quickly. It’s a King size, but the base and frame is really sturdy. The headboard piece is attached, but because of the height, it will wiggle if you shake it.

The Talc-color upholstery is a great quality linen, and it’s wrapped tightly around firm foam padding. The nailheads are all placed individually, not a strip.

Next step is to cover those naked windows!

But we’ve come pretty far already, since we started with this….

It’s amazing what a huge difference the lighter bed and linens made to the room.

What’s the biggest purchase you’ve made online? Even though we got such a great deal, this definitely qualifies as mine! Although, we made enough selling our old stuff to cover the new bed! #score

  2. Looks beautiful! It is amazing the difference between the two. I ordered my new MacBook online last month and that was definitely the biggest I've ever made online.

  5. love it!!!! We actually attached an upholstered headboard to our existing four poster bed because I wanted a proper headboard for sitting up and reading and upholstered are the most comfortable headboards possible. I'm loving your eclectic look on the bed too!

  8. I've been dreaming of an upholstered bed or even a headboard! I can't pull the trigger either. We're about to paint so maybe after that…going navy! Looks gorgeous! I love the quilt!

    Hi Cassie. Sounds like things are moving along fairly well. So glad to read that you are being proactive with the purge and pack process. Just experienced a procrastinated poorly planned packing venture (not me) combined with pack ratting and hoarding. Ran out of space in vehicles so now it's at my house!

  11. Very pretty bed, but that quilt on top just makes everything!

  12. LOVE! I have a fabric headboard, and I think it makes all the difference in a room full of wooden furniture. I believe in lots of texture, and I think you've found a beautiful headboard and bed frame! And I think roman shades would be perfection on those windows!

    Love the color scheme in that room!! As far as online purchases, I bought my wedding dress online- sight unseen πŸ™‚ and it turned out to be way more lovely than I even thought! God is good!!

  18. It looks great! Definitely love the lighter look. We bought our bed sight unseen also. I got a flyer from a furniture store an hour a way and loved the pictures. Called and bought it over the phone and my husband picked it up in boxes. It was exactly what I wanted!

  19. I love upholstered headboards and I am DYING to upgrade from our four-post Queen bed to an upholstered King… the mister is not convinced. Maybe I need to just list things on CL ala Cassie?!
    Looks gorgeous – can't wait to see the new place!

  22. Looks amazing! I love that quilt at the bottom of your bed. And as if I needed more reason to want to ditch my wood bedframe…

    Hoping you don't mind providing some more details about the bed! I came across your blog because I am looking to purchase the bed – and looks like I'll be coming back to read more! Is the bed sturdy? Boxspring required or comes with enough slats? Are the nailheads black? Thanks so much!

    • Thanks, Amy!! Yes, the bed is sturdy…the headboard does wobble a bit if you really shake the bed, but that's bc it's so tall. You can push it all the way against the wall and it stays put. I have a box spring on mine…I think it would be too short without one. And the nailheads are kind of a brushed brass. It's a beautiful bed, and such a great price for the quality!!
