But first, a Before:
The bed was on the west wall, with the windows on the south (left in this picture), and the bathroom on the north (right)...
|Looking at the north wall, <3 the new arrangement of art|
Moved the [new] bed between the windows on the south wall, taking advantage of the 16x18' room - WAY more space on each side, which allows for a little chair to sit in. This is just the same Ikea wicker chair I've had for years, acting as a placeholder (and cat bed) until I find a spiffy one on craigslist that I can re-upholster.

These aren't the greatest pics - my old camera is still not working all that well, so I took all these with my phone. At least it's a new phone, and takes better pics than my old one, lol.
|outline of old bed placement - WAY more space now!|
I don't yet have a decent shot of the sari that I hung over the head of the bed as a sort of canopy - I really love it, but I couldn't get the right light in the room to get a big picture. You can't see it in this picture, but there's a fluffy plant hanging between the sari and the window, and I plan to hang a second one on the other side, as well as bring in one of my potted trees to put next to that chair.
|because I'm a ding-a-ling|

I still need bedding - you can see in the pics that the box springs are uncovered, and I'm still using the queen-sized comforter from the old bed, hehe. I also still need to get to work on building the new wooden bed footboard, side boards, and posts to affix to the metal frame. Work in progress!
Post cat count: 4
Yet to do:
- build the wooden bed parts and install them
- replace the bedding
- repaint the ceiling
- 2 more plants
