New Bed!

When Hubs and I got married, his aunt gave us some furniture she wasn't using and looking to get rid of. It was very solid, nice furniture. But, and this is a large but, the furniture was huge! The headboard was 11 feet long. Seriously, it went wall to wall in our apartment. And it was a shelf and had storage and built in nightstands. It was HUGE.

When we decided it was best to move into his parents for awhile, we knew the bed wasn't going to be able to go with us, it just wouldn't fit in our bedroom at his parents house. So, onto Craigslist it went. And, it found a nice home with a couple who was expecting a baby and they managed to somehow fit it and the dresser into one trip...to our amazement.

But, what did that mean for us? It meant our mattress was going on the floor at his parents house. Sometimes, you do what you have to do. For us, that meant a mattress on the floor. And, this was sufficient, but after some saving and what not, we finally were able to make one of the most exciting purchases we've made together - we bought a new bed!

Our New Bed!!
We also picked up some new sheets too! You see, we got a beautiful bedding set for a wedding gift. We really enjoyed the set, but it was just too warm in our room at his parents house. So, we upgraded to a quilt awhile ago. But, we kept the original sheets we had - and I was itching to replace those! The ones we had were white and a very light blue. The problem with those was they stained so badly! Seriously, if you are considering getting white or light colored sheets, don't. They're almost impossible to keep clean! I love the color of our new sheets and I imagine keeping them clean is going to be a lot easier!

Mr. B and I are enjoying our bed so much. We had one minor hiccup - the middle support broke! But the hubs just built us a new one! I'm am so SUPER proud of him! He did a great job wielding the power tools!
