Indecision '09

I just can't decide on furniture for the Weebles' room. It is killing me. I have a lovely quilt that I had made for her room and I know what color we're painting the walls.. if I can ever get the motivation to actually paint it. But the furniture is proving to be a sticking point. We don't have much in the way of local places to choose from. Ashley furniture and Rooms to Go (not even a Rooms to Go Kids..) is all that we have close by. Neither had anything that really jumped out at me at first glance. I guess part of my problem is that I'm torn between something super cool like bunk beds which she is way too small for and doesn't have the space or need for anyway and just your basic furniture. I guess I know we're going to go with basic furniture but it is hard to let go of the idea of something like a fairy princess castle bed or the like. I found some furniture, on sale no less!, at Pottery Barn Kids that I liked online but when I went in the store I realized that the dresser was teeny tiny. So it would only be functional for her for a short time and that seems silly. There is a set at the Land of Nod I like also and I'm pretty sure that's what we'll go with but $350 in shipping alone is hard for me to come to terms with. That's more than some of the furniture! This isn't the only thing I'm having a hard time with. It is like my ability to make a decision has completely left me and it drives me nuts. But today I am motivated. Since handing down (or handing over really) the nursery furniture to her little brother last week, the Weebs has been bunking exclusively with us. I love co-sleeping. LOVE IT. But I don't particularly love it exclusively. So, this weekend it is. Painting, furniture to be ordered.. I can do this. Right?

  1. So glad you like the quilt! :-)

    You know, if you just get a plain steel mattress frame and want to make a pretty bed, you could make a fabric-covered headboard. Not too hard to do a simple one, my mom has done it a few times, and it can look super cool, personalized, and sophisticated. Just an idea...
