Up in here.

I did something ballsy yesterday and bought an orange velvet bed.  SAY WHAT??  I blame Brittany.

On the way home from San Antonio this past weekend, Brittany stopped at the outlet mall in San Marcos and texted me a picture of an orange velvet wingback bed from Williams-Sonoma.  It wasn't assembled and it was scrunched up with other beds, but I fell in love.  Lust.  We were meant to be together.

I know what you are thinking.  But Mimi, you already have an orange velvet wingback chair.  Yes, yes I do. But you can never have too much of a fabulous thing.  And I want to roll around in all of the wonderful goodness of an orange bed.  I can't do that with a chair.

So Monday night comes along and I dream about the bed.  Tuesday, dream.  Then yesterday morning, Will says that if a bed makes me that happy, then by damn we are buying it.  So after work, we picked up G and headed down to San Marcos in a big ass truck that was loud and bumpy for all 1.5 hours.  And we stopped 4 times for G to pee.  But it was worth it!  Feast your eyes on this baby (but in orange velvet).  Persimmon to be exact.

I can't find this fabric option on the WS site, so I'm guessing it's either a custom piece that was returned, or it's an old option that is no longer available.  Anywho, I got a fantastic deal on the bed and am one happy girl. 

And check out my other amazeballs deal of the night.  I found this zigzag floor pouf, without the insert, for $24.99!!  Who cares about the insert, right?  That's easy to get.  Or make.  

We are nearing the end of our renovation.  Sort of.  There's a light at the end of the tunnel, which means decorating is on my mind.  It's about to get dangerous.  Really really dangerous.  Fo-real.
