Pretty much, since we have moved in to the house, I have been a little overwhelmed by the amount of decorating that needs to take place (maybe more overwhelmed by the money it takes to do it). But one area of the house that I had written off is the upstairs. There are two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a loft-type room. I thought, Harrison is the only one going up here, I don't need to worry about it. But now that we know the second bedroom will belong to boy #2, I feel like I need to get busy working on the boys' domain (formerly known as "upstairs"). I mean, if you could see the wallpaper in the bathroom up there, you might croak. I know what you are thinking (well, at least my mom is thinking it), "the new baby won't care. It doesn't matter." And you are exactly right. But I care. I want to get it completed. I like to complete tasks. Well, not all tasks. But in this instance, I do. I made a promise to myself that I would not begin to arrange the nursery until I figured out what in the world I am going to do with H's room. Before we moved in, I had this vision of an "Extreme Home Makeover" moment when Harrison opened the door to his room the first time. Well, that didn't happen. Other than moving to a big boy bed and buying new bedding, this room remains largely untouched. The paint is still the same. There isn't anything on the walls. It is sad. He doesn't care. But again, I do. So I came across this bed yesterday on a website and I absolutely love it for Harrison. We already have two twin beds, but they are without a headboard. I promised myself I would be creative with his head board, but I just couldn't find inspiration...until I saw this. I will admit, I first checked to see if I could even buy it and I couldn't find it. So, I thought, "I can make this." All I need is PVC piping and some rope. I told Adam (with a huge hope that his engineering degree would save the day) and he said, "I have no idea how you are going to make it. How would you get the rope to adhere to the PVC pipe. And why would you use PVC pipe?" I thought PVC pipe and duct tape solved all problems but apparently not. And I was hoping he was going to answer the questions that he asked me. Not so much. So, if anyone out there has any idea on how to construct this headboard, please let me know. And I would've put a picture on here, but I couldn't figure it out.
