I made a headboard – and now I have a massive headache

So back when we were in our NYC apartment I bought a bed that had storage underneath. No headboard because it was meant to be sort of a full size day bed that would fit nicely with Alex’s crib. When we moved to Atlanta I put this bed in the smallest bedroom we have (it is small – I’d say 12 x 14 – maybe a little bigger). The room is right next to the washer dryer and often my clean, unfolded laundry just piles up on it which makes my husband pissed off and me feel like a failure. So, in a burst of energy I decided to redecorate this room. Starting with a new headboard. But I didn’t pick just any headboard – I picked this one:

I had Barry (my handyman who is known as my DAY husband) put it together in about and hour.

But I’m not great with sewing or batting or well, anything like this. I went to the fabric store to have a peek yesterday and became even more confused than ever. What color? The room is painted a boring yellow. I can change that easily but…..I have so many duvets in red or pink or yellow with pink. I cannot go patterned or exciting with this headboard cover unless I can take it off (make a few). So….my mom is coming to visit (need I say more).

Anyone with ideas for a small room that gets a lot of sunlight?

I’m not great at decorating and I just freakin need help. End of story.

I hope I didn’t bore some of you to tears so that you never, ever come back.

Because that was the most boring post I’ve ever written. Hands down.

I’ll write another that will be a bit more interesting – hey, a LOT more interesting. I’m going to tell you a story. The real story.
