In order to make it more couch-like I decided to do away with the bed frame and add furniture feet instead. A dust ruffle also would have been too bed-like, so I instead opted to cover the boxspring with fabric after seeing a pin on Pinterest. So clever! So here's the pinspiration and then my take on it:

Once I had the fabric, it was time to purchase the feet. I went to Lowes and scored five of these bad boys for $6.98 a piece.

Urban Nest laid out some great instructions to follow if you are interested in trying your own:

I also drilled my foot holes after I covered the boxspring. I just moved aside the fabric where needed. I added a fifth foot to the middle for more support.
So while I was working on covering the boxspring, I was also working on the headboard. Awhile ago I had fallen in love with a DIY headboard on Pinterest and decided to make one for myself:

I really like how they turned out and can't wait to make more pillows to throw on there to really make it an inviting place to chill. My new sewing machine arrived. I hope to start playing with it over the weekend while my fiance is pulling a 24+ hour shift. Slowly but surely, the room is coming together!
