A New Bed!

Check out the new guest bed I snagged for ...get this... $50 on craigslist!!

Yes, it needs a little work, but overall, I thought it was a great deal!
We finally upgraded the 20 year old mattress we're sleeping on to a W Hotel bed (I'll let you know what we think of it when it gets here), so the old one moves to the guest room. I'm still undecided about what I'm going to do with it- definitely needs a refinishing job.

I might go the boring route and refinish it with the original stain color, but what I love about this piece is strictly the structure & shape- that curved footboard is awesome! Come spring, we're refinishing the floor in there & staining it darker- I'm a little worried it might be too much wood (there are also wood built-ins that I'm much more reluctant to paint). So plan B is to paint the trim all bright white and the panels a bold, bright color. It might be just the breath of life & energy this bed is begging for! We'll see though...

SNOWPOCALYPSE

Well, we're all snowed in here! The day was spent marveling at the 4th greatest snowfall for the region & then shoveling ourselves out.

God's mercies are great! We didn't lose power, but we're pretty much stuck. Our church is only going to be open for people who can walk there- what with there being absolutely nowhere to park in town. We're warm, bundled up, and have plenty of food, but please keep the thousands without power, stranded on roads, etc in your prayers!!
