So, my husband and I decided (somehow simultaneously), that it is time for us to "grow up" and buy a bed. We have had our mattresses either on a bed frame, or simply on the ground, since being married almost 9 years ago.
We have never really bought furniture, well, actually, we did buy our Costco mattresses, but furniture has either always been given to us, or we have bought it second-hand. I do enjoy looking on-line to find a style that I like though, and then find something similar-but-used somewhere (usually craigslist). Pottery Barn has super cute beds on-line right now - but I wonder if the pillows and blankets add way too much. Like, this seagrass woven headboard (one of the less expensive ones) - this would so not look cute in my home, but looks amazing here.
