I was at Target the other day buying exciting things like groceries and socks, and I had no intention whatsoever of buying bedding for Abe’s room….but then I did anyway.
I think I mentioned in passing awhile back that I’ve been searching high and low for reasonably priced black and white buffalo check sheets for Abe’s bed, preferably in flannel. I still haven’t managed to find any, but I think now that that’s probably because I was meant to find THESE flannel ikat sheets at Target instead:
Buffalo check sheets mean nothing to me now. I went ahead and got him a nice soft gray blanket, too, since he only had his wool blanket on there before.
I’d also mentioned before maybe putting a box spring on the bed frame to lift things up a little….but then he fell out of bed just last night, so I think we’ll hold off on that for now (as is, the bed is so low that falling out of it is no big deal; he’s been known to fall out of bed and stay asleep on the floor, in fact).
Here’s how the bed is looking now:
(Incidentally, I think these pictures in this post give the best idea of the true color of the Bunker Hill Green walls. I’m a little obsessive about how hard it is to get a representation of it. But this is pretty close. I think it’s a shade brighter in real life).
I’m really happy with it so far, but I want to get some fun throw pillows to finish it up. I actually considered impulse buying a few throw pillows so I could call it done, but then I decided that that would be foolish. Plus, you know what’s more fun than a post about a finished bed with a few throw pillows? A post about an almost finished bed and a whole bunch of different throw pillows that I MIGHT get! So that is what kind of post this is.
Here are the contenders at the moment:
