It is days like yesterday and today I am very thankful to have hundreds of blog friends. Your ideas, comments and suggestions got my creative juices flowing, perhaps even bubbling over! I immediately set out into the garage to choose a couple mismatched dressers that will be used as nightstands (TONS of you suggested it, so it must be right). I, too, have been baffled as to window coverings and creating weight on the opposite side of the room.
Here is a before shot of a dresser I am working on right now for one side:

And Sean was tickled pink to hear so many of you echo his instincts to leave the headboard up, which is currently the plan. Although Mary's recent post over at Vintage Home & Garden featuring an old door as a headboard really has me floored.
Can't wait to share what I come up with!
