Mum, Gracie, Wolfie and Wiggy and I love our bedroom. It's big enough for all of us to sleep in and Mum got us a nice queen bed not too long after she got me.
When Mum got the queen sized bed, she wanted something creative for her headboard. One day she saw a great idea on HGTV. So she asked GrandMum if she could have a couple of the old wooden doors to use for her headboard. GrandMum and Mum attached the old doors to the bed frame and now we have a really cool headboard that fits right in with all our other bedroom furniture.
Buying furniture isn't one of Mum's favorite things. I think the only furniture she's purchased over the years is our couch, chair and ottoman in our family room, and my cool desk for our office. The other furniture has been handed down from GrandMum, including our dining room table, chests of drawers, armour for the TV, and other pieces.
She sometimes looks at Trica Furniture, Lane Furniture, and Highland Design Furniture, and bar furniture, but doesn't really feel they fit with her style, even though others may really like their pieces. She'd rather stick with the great antique hand-me-downs that she got from GrandMum. She doesn't have to worry if we mark it up a bit in our wild tangents, and it's a great way Mum to remember GrandMum, too!
