The Beast!

It is time to say good-bye to the beast....um...I mean my daughters bed.  I'll tell ya, it sounded like a great idea at the time.  The idea:  get rid of the twin bed and get a full size.  Not just any full size but the kind with amazing storage underneath it and a bookcase headboard. Guaranteed to make more space in a small room with all of the storage drawers (so I thought).  Guaranteed to keep the child more organized (so I thought).  WRONG thoughts....oh such wrong thoughts!!! To think I so badly wanted this bed and all it came with.  Funny, today I want it out of my house as badly as I had wanted the delivery truck to arrive with it.  
WHY you ask is it now known as the beast?  Because that is the only word I can think of when I look at it. This bed did nothing that I thought that it would do. Everything and I mean everything fell underneath it (UGH!)  The storage was awful.....the drawers too small for really anything.  The bookcase headboard....basically just a lint/dust trap. So there you have it......it just did not work for me.  Out it goes and tomorrow a brand new frame, box springs and mattress will arrive in its place.  No fancy headboard, no storage drawers, no false hope for organization for the child, just a plain old fashioned bed which I am super excited to see arrive!  Don't let me fool you though.....I still have hope for the organization I'm just not telling anyone!


  1. Wish I'd been close enough to confiscate the beast. LOL I saw lots of upcycling possibilities :-)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
