I'm not very crafty that way, but I used to have a sleigh bed. One year between moves, my family and I rented a home on the outskirts of town and my room had the sleigh bed. It was one of my favourite Christmases as a young adult.
We had a tree trimming party and a few family friends and relatives were invited to come and chop a tree down from the back yard. When nobody was home, I'd toss Christmas tunes on and you could hear it from every room in the house.
Enjoy your sleigh bed!
