I Wonder How Many Angels Had to Die in the Making of This Bed?

I never knew how much I needed to have a beautiful bed in my life…

I never knew how big a difference existed between average sheets…and lovely sheets…

I never realised that seven pillows on a bed–ridiculous though they are–could soothe me to sleep…

A headboard never seemed all that necessary before–let alone a foot board to match…
Let’s just say…
I’ve never lived until now.

Headboard/Footboard: $30.00 from Craigslist.

Extra brackets on bed frame so headboard would stop squeaking: Free labour.
Bed skirt, sheets, pillow cases, duvet, duvet cover, quilt, and one million pillows we’ll never use: Gift from mother in law.

Sleeping like a queen for the rest of my life: About $250.00, all said and done.

*[Bet you thought I was going to say “Priceless,” huh?]*

    Alright you’ve inspired me. I am going to look for a new bedroom set or headboard on Craig’s List. I hate ours.

    Oh Camille You are so lucky. How come I can never great things on craigslist? Your bed looks absolutely divine.

    Here’s a question for your list. Why do numerous comments commend your clever craigslist action, and only one the ever generous source of ALL the bedding…your DEAR mother in law? And, i assume, the free labour of your dear husband?
    Apparently i’m not the only one here with agenda.

    what kind of camera do you have? you always have clear pictures.

    I want to know where your mother in-law got that bedding? Its great.

    i so agree, nunes family. gorgeous colours, textures, a stage set for a queen. mother in law seems to have great taste. though i wonder if her and camille picked it out together. i get the sense they do like to shop together.
    one way or another, it’s a beautiful bed, fit for royalty. I especially like the strong presence of the wooden headboard and footboard. i wish mine were that nice.

    (and i don’t even have a headboard or footboard. though sears is delivering a matte black steel railing type headboard this saturday, coincidentally. i’m so excited. should fit in well here. i looked for something in big beautiful wood, but i think it would overpower my small bedroom.)
    yet again, inspired by the master(s).

  18. The Lowry's says:

    I have always wanted a bed with tons of pillows like that. I should go out and buy some huh?
    I love your headboard. And the fact that it was such an amazing deal too. Hmm maybe I need to look on Craigslist.
