In our first two homes, the master bedroom was always close to the last room done on the list. It was always because no one sees our room when they came to the house, so it always just fell on the back burner. (This is also my reason for never making the bed! I really don’t care how they say that your day starts off so much better if you make your bed. Ain’t nobody got time for that.) Unfortunately, it was the room that we spend the most time in, other than the kitchen, so we really should have made it a priority.
So when we moved into our Delaware home, I didn’t want to ignore it. We have always wanted a king size bed, and decided to finally take the leap. We started off with the queen sized bed that we’ve been moving around with us everywhere since it was David’s first big purchase for his apartment in New Jersey after he graduated college. We moved it to the Maryland house after we bought it, and then I made a DIY headboard for it (maybe I’ll do a post about that one day) to make it look less like a floating mattress pushed up against the wall. With some hand me down dressers from my parents, and some IKEA night stands, we made it work in both the Maryland house and the South Carolina house.
