But first things first, we have to decide what bed...and I want your help.
Since building a daybed, (ok, ok, I supervised building the daybed. I'm still afraid of the miter saw. But I'm pretty good at using an electric screwdriver, filling holes, sanding, and painting). I have been itching to try another DIY building project. So this seems like the perfect opportunity, since we are bed-less and all.
Option One: The Arched Bed

And in case you are wondering, here is how you build it (thanks to Ana White @ Knock Off Wood!)
Option Two: The Farmhouse Bed

This bed is inspired by Pottery Barn - it's so classic and beautiful. Here is how to make it in a King-size.
Option Three: No Building, Just Painting
Our third option was inspired by The Lettered Cottage and their new bed:

Except, without the dog of course (pregnancy hormones are making me slightly crazy, and David is trying to keep me sane and dog-less. Which rationally, I know is definitely the best move. "but wouldn't a Golden Retriever puppy be so cute under the Christmas tree.....")
Ok, back to the bed. Available at JCPenny & with a little spray paint, of course.
Three very different looks. Price-wise, they are all in a similar range.
And in case you are wondering, this is the bedding that we have.
It's Guru Paisley from Anthropologie.
So, what are your thoughts and opinions?!
