I would love some input on a purchase….
I have been looking for a bed/headboard for my 5 year old’s room forever. He inherited the guest bedroom which has a queen bed. I used to have a brass bed (see below) in there but I thought it looked too girly so for the past couple of years (ughh – how has it been that long?…), he has been sleeping on the boxspring and mattress with no headboard or anything. At first it sounded like a great solution because he was close to the floor and I never had to worry about him falling out.
Now he will be 5 tomorrow and this is getting quite pathetic!
The poor kid needs a real bed!
The problem is that most queen beds are too grown up looking – (and expensive!). Then the other day, I came across a furniture store that is having a tent sale. Check out this great headboard they had – and it is only $100!
Now I know you think I am crazy not to buy it immediately, but I think through ever single purchase so carefully and I don’t want to just get it because it is cheap! As you can see, it is off white so I would probably paint it navy blue to go with my son’s nautical bedroom. But I don’t have a lot of furniture painting experience and I am a little scared! Do I feel like taking on a project like that? I thought painting my bathroom vanity was going to be no problem but that took forever. Am I being a wimp or what? And if I paint it navy, would it work in a boy’s room or does the shape look too girly?
Now, the reason I need some quick advice is because I am afraid someone else will buy the headboard if I don’t act quickly…
So what do you think?
Buy it or don’t buy it?
Thanks for your help!
