So, remember the drama I wrote about of not being able to fit the black bed frame in the back of the Jeep?  Well, I measured it again and believed it could actually fit.  I remember my Dad always used that old adage, "measure twice/cut once", so I guess the same could be said of moving stuff in the back of a car.  Measure twice/load once, LOL.

It had to be taken out of the box of course, but I was pretty sure it would work.  So last night, we headed off to Ikea after work, and bought it.  We took it out of the box there in the parking lot and carefully loaded it in.
With about a 1/2" to spare, it fit!

So picture this this room...haha.

I would have taken pictures last night, but it was a last minute trip and I didn't have my camera with me.  I'll get some pics this weekend of course.

But it looks really good.  We love it.

This was also, coincidentally, the first time we had seen the house since all the stuff was done, at night.  I mean, like really dark of night.  Thankfully the moon was full and bright so we could see to get onto the front porch and open the front door, but then I when I turned on both of the new porch lights, wow it was SO nice to have light out there.  We want to get some lanterns at some point for a more subdued light, but it looked great.  The lights in the kitchen were great too, it was well lit and will be great when 2nd Man is cooking.  We didn't stay long, only dropped off the bed and put it together, and then headed back to the city.

All in all, it was a productive evening.  We are SO glad we were able to get the bed frame out there.  It's much easier to decorate a room when the major "space hogs" are in place.  Then you can decorate around them.

Lots more pictures this weekend!

  1. I love black colored metal beds, they can combine easily with any kind of room setting, doesn't matter what type of color your walls and other furniture have, the above one is looking beautiful.
