Remember way back when I finally finished the green wall and I promised that I would deal with the hi-fi (and the years of clutter on top of it) really soon? Well, that was December 2013. I finally got around to it yesterday.
This month we had one of only two “free” paychecks this year– a check out of which no bills at all needed to be paid. I’m hoping to sock some of it away in savings but we agreed ahead of time to make at least one major purchase with it: a bed. We have a decent mattress and box spring which are only a year or two old, topped by a nice featherbed. But the frame we have been using is one of those angle-iron and industrial caster nightmares with no support underneath at all, so our carefully selected mattress and box spring visibly sagged in the center– even when neither of us fatasses was on the bed. I shopped around and found a bed we both instantly liked the looks of, and which went along with the general style and color of our dressers (square, leaning toward Mission style, and stained very dark). I was extremely pleased, when constructing it, to find that there were five sturdy slats underneath – which screwed into place so that they can’t wiggle loose – the middle three of which have extra legs in the middle for even more support. It feels like a whole new bed. Like a bed at a fancy hotel.
Every day it looks just a little less like a frathouse in here.
