Careful planning can lead you to make cuts that will net you the 2” in length and 1” in width. I recommend that you be fussy when doing such work, and only do it as an absolute last resort.

The bigger problem is ”it’s just too big for the room”. From the pictures you’ve posted, I don’t see that problem. Looks a little larger scale than the dresser, but toss a few pillows and a couple dozen toys at it (and maybe even a low box spring) and no one will notice the slight scale difference.

You mentioned that if you move it to the window wall, you partially block the window. Such is done all the time, and should probably NOT be considered a decorating faux pas.

Keep it. Get a custom-sized mattress (and maybe box-spring). Celebrate the grand scale!
