Here are a few photos.
Smudge doesn't seem to mind it at any rate. Oh, and on a positive note, setting up the bed in the middle of what should be the dining room helped to settle the question of whether or not we should drop a chandelier into the middle on the canopy bed. While it's a pretty idea, our bed is just way too high. We don't have a lot of clearance at all at present so we've adjusted the bed to put the fixture closer to our feet so we don't sit up into the thing in the middle of the night.
Also, I am in love with our new bed. I feel so cocooned and snugly in it.
