At the old house, we had a nice Realtree camo bedspread that my sister-in-law and I found on one of our Black Friday shopping escapades a few years ago.
It was fine for a few years, but it's already showing its age and it matched our old bedroom.
When I started planning for our bedroom in the farmhouse, I was excited to be able to change the decorating style from deeper tones to a lighter feeling with a few dark anchor pieces.
I was glancing through Facebook one day and a friend of ours had just listed a two-year-old queen bedroom set on there with a bed frame, night stands, and a nice dresser! I messaged her immediately and we ended up getting it!
We had been sleeping on a full-size bed (and mattress) that was almost 34 years old. It has served us well and we decided to leave it for the new owners of the old house to use in their guest room.
I purchased quilted bedspread, the box springs, and mattress and we were set
It was pretty entertaining.
The box springs were planks of wood that just fit together and made the foundation for the bed.
The 12-inch memory foam mattress, was vacuumed sealed and rolled into a box that was about 18 inches square and as long as a queen bed is wide.
I can't wait to share the room reveal with you when we finish the details!
For now, here's a taste of what the quilt looks like with the new wall paint and new bed set!
And here is Matthew's great-grandpa's wardrobe in the corner of our new bedroom.
Don't mind the sleeping child. Claire Bear needed to try out the new bed after church camp.
Today is moving day, folks...more reveal pics to come in the near future!
Thanks for following along on our journey!
