Good morning darlings! Hell is also making a bed with more than six pillows every morning haha. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m on day 3 of my 3-day juice cleanse and I can’t wait to share it with you but that’s for another day.
I spent a lot of time this weekend doing some meditation and really trying to refocus and asses my life goals. A lot of the time was spent in solitude and it was so refreshing to just reconnect with myself.
As you can imagine, the majority of my weekend was spent in my bed; my safe haven, my sanctuary, often referred to as my marshmallow; it is so unbelievably cozy that it’s almost nearly impossible to get up and get moving in the mornings. “Just 9 more minutes please” (if you immediately picked up on the song reference and started singing in your head, we need to be best friends).
When I left California and moved to Minnesota (that’s a story to be told over bottles of wine), I got rid of pretty much everything. I wanted a fresh start. I moved with just 2 suitcases full of clothes and let me tell you, it’s the way to go! Of course once I got settled in the new place, the first order of business was to get a new car, new clothes, new furniture, new everything.
Initially, when designing my room, I wanted a huge navy tufted bed; the color palette included white, gold, and shades of navy. Clearly, I adhered to that plan really well haha.
This room actually revolves around the little side console on the left. It was this awful, old wooden piece that I found in a consignment shop; I would not have purchased it had it not had such great detailing (bonus, it was only $15). The plan was to refinish this console and turn it into a mini bar for the living area. Once finished though, it just didn’t fit the vibe of the living room so I figured I’d find some way to incorporate it into my room.
Following suit, I picked up a night stand and an old dresser to refinish (Craigslist, you’re the real MVP) which resulted in my very own custom furniture. Sure I could’ve bought pieces that already matched, but where’s the fun in that? I had a lot of fun refinishing the furniture and really making it “mine.” Plus, I can now add “furniture restorator” as a skill on my resume haha jk.
I deliberated between a few different beds before finally committing to this gorgeous upholstered charcoal bed. The glossy nail head trim and the high headboard is what sold me. Sooo if I don’t call or text back, it’s because I’ve decided to become one with my bed.
