lay your head here.

The SO and I have been living together for the past 7 months, yet where we turn in at the end of the night is still my full-size Ikea matress. On.the.floor. This drives me absolutely insane. We had planned on buying a new bed/boxspring set in a Queen back in February when our mailbox was bombarded by President Sales ads. However, we had just purchased a couch, so the money wasn’t really there and the rational came about that we both weren’t particularly large people, so a full size bed (just purchased maybe a scant 3 years ago), still had some life in it.

It has lived on the floor (atop an Ikea rug) for the past 7 months. If we decide to stay at the ‘Manor’, I’m pretty sure that it will stay on the floor. The SO says we can go look at bed frames (the frame that belonged to our bed has long been broken and trashed) in the near future. I’m pretty much willing to settle on a boxspring and a headboard. Perhaps this is why this project spotted on Design*Sponge today really stole my heart. and promptly ran off with it. I hope it goes back home and waves it into SO’s face to show that his lady would really enjoy a headboard.


I haven’t embroidered in a while and the detail of those thick, intertwined threads just looks so inviting! It is such a cutesy, folksy kind of trompe l’oeil.
