BUT, not quite tall enough for me now that we have "slept on it" for a while now. My genius thought is to remove the existing headboard that is attached to the base with a few screws and replace it with a new DIY-ed headboard. I am leaning towards a white upholstered headboard since the head wall is a dark gray (Devin may not be a fan of the idea...YET). I have sent him the following image from here, for encouragement.
This particular headboard may not be upholstered but it is white with a dark base, which was concern number one. An upholstered headboard with our hairy children is concern number two, which I am still contemplating. I am toying with the idea of laminated fabric that can be easily wiped down, but am a little worried that it might feel like grandma's house with plastic on the furniture, which I am definitely against. I found this image here, of a beautiful headboard that is sans upholstery which is another option.
I did purchase this beautiful quilt from Target cause I just couldn't resist it's gorgeous-ness and the way it just "went" with our new master bathroom colors.
The master bedroom of course is another work in progress but I will be sure to keep you posted as to what the decision will be.
