What would you do?
Currently I have a bed like this (although this is not mine):
I am trying to redo my room, and found the Ikea hemnes bed in white (i have white drawers and shelves) for $80 on craigslist
I was planning to sell my bed, and got an offer for $70.
I came across this photo
which is my bed PAINTED YELLOW
and I kind of liked it. I don't know how i feel about the yellow, but maybe I could spray paint it a cream colour or black fairly easily. Would that look okay or would it look like I lived in a JAIL?
My bed is 10+ years old, but is pretty sturdy. I'm frightened that if I buy a used IKEA bed it will fall apart.
Should I suck it up and sell my bed and buy the new one, or should I just paint mine?
Money is definitely an issue, but if I sell mine the new one would only be $10 so that's fine.
