Bed: Paint or Sell?
While DD's room is in a holding pattern, I have been trying to decide if I should paint or sell my bed. It is sooooo tall.
It is just so visually obtrusive in the room and I have been paring down even more heading towards a more shabby chic less is more approach w/ mostly white and softer colors. I'm going bare walls (I moved the art into the DR) keeping current white wall color (thinking old MS Mercury Glass ceiling) and my gold lamp bases (I've since put white shades on them). I think less 'visual clutter' will make the room feel less small. Our MBR is super small and our bed is a King.
I have a really cool double door Georgian style pediment in the attic that I bought ages ago thinking that I could use it as a low profile headboard someday and and then go sans footboard.
Or I could spray my current bed high gloss white but then I would still be stuck w/ the foot board. It's bowed and takes up an additional 6" of precious space and is another eye obstacle. When I bought this bed (this is going to sound crazy to normal non-decor folk) I liked the style but I thought that it would be perfect to hang Christmas Wreath's and garlands on LOL! The footboard is part of the frame so I need it to hold my bed up.
Or I could sell my bed for about $250/300 on Craigslist, put the money towards the new sofa fund and for a song jerry-rig that pediment that I have into a headboard and pick up a frame for $15 on CL and figure out a different place to put a Christmas wreath.
