This is what our full-size bed looked like in the space.
We purchased this queen-size mattress because we were happy with the comfort of the full-size; we just wanted it to be bigger.
Instead of throwing our old mattress on the curb, we paid Renewable Recycling to come pick it up. They recycle everything they can from the mattress, which is apparently up to 90% of the material from innerspring mattresses. They’ll even pick up mattresses that have bed bugs, and while they don’t recycle them, they do sterilize them so the problem doesn’t spread.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but jersey sheets are the best, and we’ve slept on these sheets for years. We bought two sets of queen-size sheets when we got the new mattress.
Despite trying our best to not purchase the comforter from Urban Outfitters, this was our favorite of all the options we found. It’s not being sold anymore, but here’s something similar. And here it is on Pinterest, where we first saw it.
A friend recommended the Buffy comforter to us, and we’re obsessed with it. It’s warm and fluffy and eco-friendly. It cost more than we thought we wanted to spend, but it was totally worth it. Be sure to take advantage of the $10 coupon code you get for signing up for their email list.
This dresser didn’t necessarily match the room once we painted, but the new duvet cover picked up the taupe color of the drawers, and now it looks like we planned it that way.

To check out all the drama about the throw pillows, you can revisit Ep. 03: Learning Patience. Now that we have the new duvet cover and headboard, maybe they’re working? At the very least, they’re not on the list of things to change out at this point.
The gallery wall continues to evolve as we swap things around.
This side table was our first decoupage project, and while it really doesn’t go with anything in the space anymore, we still like the way it looks. Check out InstaStories to vote on whether it should stay or be redone.
