My not-so frugal side

When I think of buying new furniture my mind goes to pressed wood and shiny oaky veneers. I dream about antique bedroom sets from the 20s and 40s. With a king sized bed and the options we want like lots of storage that just isn't going to happen. So, we've been shopping here and there in retail furniture outlets for awhile and haven't been impressed.

But, Hubby and I fell in love with this furniture collection. Let me just say that it looks even better in real life. You can't really see the details. And I'm a sucker for details. Our bed will be similar but will have a storage option on the side. Hubby is tall and can't stand a foot board. I don't know what other pieces we will get to go along with it but I think two dressers and two night stands.

Here's a look

Gotta get going. Lots to do today.

My sweety, in her fru-guilt, is failing to mention that we're paying for this bedroom upgrade with just a part of a smallish car accident settlement I'm getting.

And that the vast majority of the money from the settlement will be going towards paying off our house.

(Oh, and I might get a 20 year old pinball machine too.)

It's beautiful. I'd love to sleep on it :-) You spend like 1/3 of your life in bed, right?
