I really don’t know if I believe in fate or kismet or serendipity or coincidence or whatever, but sometimes things just happen.  And it does leave me questioning…

Like today. 

Today is like the most gorgeous fall day. Sunny. 80. Light breeze.  Low humidity. Perfect. But I had a damn band concert to play at 1:30. 

Well, at least the band concert was outdoors, right?  (P.S. it went really well.)

But on the way to the band concert I noticed all sorts of road construction that would end up impeding my journey home. So, after the concert, I took an alternate route home. 

Which just so happened to take me past the Room & Board Outlet.  And I thought “Even though it’s late on Saturday, I should stop in. Cuz you never know.”

So I stopped. 

And ended up buying a bed for 60% off. 

*** record scratch***


Yeah- ever since I bought my cheapo platform bed online ( ive sort of regretted it. Because of this I’ve painted the bed (twice!), added architectural detail, and then steam punked it. Nothing quite made me like it more. 

So I’ve been passively “bed shopping”.  Online sites, R&B outlet, Restoration hardware, etc. Sure my current bed is fine, so there wasn’t any urgency. But I did need an upgrade (read as: I wanted an upgrade).

In my mind I had a general idea of what I wanted:  good headboard, fewer hard edges, storage, still a platform or bed that doesn’t need a box spring, modernist, and no fabrics that could easily stain.  Ahem. 

So for 6 months or more I have basically been keeping my eye out for a bed that fit this criteria. 
Which then brings me to today–  taking a different route home and randomly stopping the R&B Outlet on the most gorgeous day of fall when I should have rushed home to go biking but instead shopped a selection which had avoided being picked over by virtue of the weather and…

It’s a distressed, smoke grey leather bed, with a pullout storage drawer!!  I’ve been covering the pullout storage drawer solution forever– perfect for storing bedding and my box of sexytimes accoutrement!  And my bedroom is painted grey.

And because there is a dent in the leather (someone leaned a corner of something up against the headboard), the bed was marked down 63%.  63 fucking percent!

I just couldn’t pass it up.

It gets delivered on Thursday.

  1. I have 6 under-bed storage drawers (bed from this end up furniture). unlike yours, my drawers do not contain “sexytimes accoutrements”! quelle dommage. 😦

    The drawer is also highly convenient for quickly stuffing a body when the authorities or a nosy neighbor come to your door unexpectedly to inquire about the murderous screams coming from your apartment.

    Oh so many uses!

    And here I thought you’d be one to proudly display the extensive dildo collection – perhaps on a wall length, floor-to-ceiling bookcase – rather than hide them beneath the bed. 😉

    Shopping when you actually “need” something is the worst time, because you’ll probably buy something you’re not in love with or you’ll pay too much. I have found that passively shopping my favorite stores once a week or so helps me score fantastic deals (clearance, close-out, etc) on things I can use but don’t necessarily need. Like a new bed.
