You guys, it’s happened.  Hell has frozen over.  For that can be the only explanation as to how my super sexy, but oh so stubborn and lover of all things plain and manly, boyfriend and I have agreed on bedroom furniture.  Don’t get me wrong,  by no means did we easily reach an agreement, but sometime around 10:30 pm last night, it happened!  Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?

You see, I have BEAUTIFUL bedroom furniture currently that I love and splurged on when I moved to VA 1.5 short years ago.  It’s this set from Pottery Barn, and you would have to pry my cold dead fingers off of it before I’d willingly give it up.



Isn’t it fabulous?  Well Darren hates it.  He thinks it looks like it belongs in a beach house or something, and repeatedly tells me how stupid it was to spend that much money on furniture to put in a house I rent.  I retaliate with something cunning like “No, you’re stupid.” Sigh.  Anyway, the real problem lies in the fact that my gorgeous bed is queen sized, and Darren and I are rather large people who like our space when we sleep.  Throw in the fact that he was gifted an almost brand new king sized mattress and box spring, and we were in the market for king sized furniture.  Insert compromise here;  my furniture will be guest room furniture and I will forever be jealous of our guests.  Alright let’s be serious, any guests will most likely just my sister.

Anyway, so we started looking for nice furniture that wouldn’t break the bank since we have an entire house to furnish, and some remodeling to do.  At this point it became apparent that I am clueless when it comes to knowing how much furniture should cost, and consulted my dear friends who pointed me in the direction of Value City.  Also, a trip to Kacy’s apartment solidified that decision.  I picked out three different bedroom sets on Sunday, and yesterday Darren went to look at them in person.  We immediately nixed one of them, and were left to decide between a plain masculine looking set and a more detailed elegant one.  After much deliberation and pointing out that the one dresser would barely fit in the room, we came to an agreement.

ta da!

Paired with this bedding, that I did purchase from Pottery Barn (on sale!) and the two shade of gray paint we’ve selected (a dark for below the chair rail and a lighter for above) and I think our master is going to look awesome.

Don’t hurt my feelings and tell me it’s going to look awful, please?  And for shits and giggles, here’s the kitchen table we’re getting.  It’s bar height, and then eventually we’ll get a nice dining room set for our formal dining room.

There you have it.  One room done, and an entire house left to go.  Although, the rest won’t get done until much later, once my bank account has recovered.  Oh, and just because I think he looks really cute here :);

the paint stained clothes are another story
