A month ago, or maybe even more, I saw this “bedroom bench” or “bedroom ottoman” at my favorite store Ho.me Goo.ds. I had been looking for one for a couple of months. My new bedroom is so big I have found that I actually need more furniture to fill it up. I thought a bedroom bench at the foot of my bed would add a nice look.
I had hoped to find one to bring out the red tones in my bedding, but I came across a blue one and immediately fell in love. In the store I thought it would coordinate nicely with my lamps (also purchased from Ho.me Goo.ds) and bonus! it was on clearance.
Unfortunately I didn’t have the funds to blow on non-critical furniture that day so I left. Last week I stopped by the store and, again, and there was my ottoman waiting for me. It was fate. I must have it. I bought it. Then I got it home and…
…it doesn’t quite fit. Not really. I mean, in certain light it looks fine, but other times, it looks out of place. And it looks so small sitting in front of my bed. I haven’t decided if I will return it or repurpose it in another room. It actually might work in the guest room. I just love it and I love that it opens so it’s great for storage. Regan loves it too. Now she is able to climb on mommy’s bed without any assistance. She also enjoys standing on it and jumping off. Ever the daredevil, that girl is.
What do you think? Does it go with my bedroom? Even a little?
