{ I Love a Good Surprise.... And Find}

A few months ago we finally ordered a new headboard for our guest bedroom .  We struggled for months on which one to purchase & after West Elm had an amazing sale of 25% off furniture during the holidays it was easy for us to make our minds up. 

Our favorite was always the Scroll Headboard.   We both loved this one but neither of us {especially my husband} could justify spending $449 plus $60 for shipping on a headboard that doesn't get much use.  So we saved our design dollars {we have a WE credit card} & patiently waited.  It went on sale & we ended up spending $100 bucks out of pocket for the piece.  Not too shabby if I say so myself. 

We got a call on Monday telling us that the bed would be delivered on Saturday between 8:30-10:30. 
I was excited. 
Really excited. 
Well I got a call today from the delivery company & they said they were way ahead of schedule & could we accept delivery today in like 2 hours.  Uh, YES!

The minute it came in the door we dragged to the guest bedroom & installed.  It's gorgeous!  
And I LOVE the height of it. 

We purchased 3 of the Convex mirrors from West Elm 4 months ago that we'll have to rehang above the bed.  I'm hoping they'll still look good with the new height we've added.  

This room is coming together nicely. 
We have a few more things we'd like to do like purchase a new rug, paint the ceiling, add crown molding & maybe stencil a wall. 

My husband says I'll never be finished with the room but I'm on a mission to prove him wrong!

After the awesome call I got today I decided to press my luck & head to my favorite local used furniture store to see if I could find a score. 

I totally did. 

It's a 1940 blonde mahogany buffet.  She's gorgeous as she is but I have amazing plans for her.  She'll be used as our tv cabinet & I can't wait!
More on her later....

Today was a REALLY good day!
