When I first decided to start this blog, I quickly threw together a logo to suit a WordPress theme I had saved in my files. Quick and easy. It gave me an online presence. I always knew I would brand this venture properly in time. There just isn’t enough hours in a day! I can use design software and create a logo, but then you have to think about saving all the different versions. Then creating it in different sizes for all the different social media networks, Instagram profile, Twitter header, Youtube… Plus if like me, you saved them all…

When I was considering this bed, I did the normal thing and trawled the internet trying to find some real life photos or reviews of the KOPARDAL bed. Apart from a couple of staged shots on Pinterest. I came up with zilch. So I thought I would share my thoughts on this bed and a few pictures during the build. AN IMPORTANT WARNING: When we saw the bed in the showroom, I did the usual IKEA thing and went to make a note of the location for the boxes. But it said to contact staff, so I went and found some one…
