For example, I sold one of two nightstands only to realize “Oh, hey! A new headboard would really help my bedroom look great.”
Let me back up for a second.
My last bedroom was a perfect square with a long double closet to took up most of one of the four walls. The new bedroom is rectangular and while I appreciate the longer room – and walk-in closet – my upholstered bed suddenly feels huge, especially in length.
Now I have gone from knowing I want to swap out my dresser and nightstand to thinking about starting completely over. The dresser and nightstand are about fifteen years old and from Crate and Barrel‘s original lower-priced line (the precursor to CB2). But they held up great because, unlike a lot of what’s available now, they are made of solid wood (WHAT A CONCEPT).
Of course, that would speed up my need to replace my bedding.
At this rate, you will never get a visual tour of my new apartment because it will never be decorated to my satisfaction. I give up. This is too stressful. SORRY IN ADVANCE.
