So for the last two years, we’ve been just sleeping on a frame and a couple months ago we ordered some new bedroom furniture which was delivered today. Here’s the old bed ready to be removed.
Here’s the new one – with no mattress. I don’t know what they had set up on the bed in the store but the plush mattress we picked and had delivered was crazy high – like I could barely climb onto it. Our bed in MN was higher too but it wasn’t that bad. We didn’t accept the delivery of the mattress and I’ve got to run over and see if I can find one that is short enough for me to climb into the bed and still comfortable – I sleep on my side and my hips can’t take a firm mattress anymore. The mattress was about 4 inches higher than those bedside tables!!!!
This frame is no taller than our previous one but the slats sit higher to accommodate the drawers. In hindsight we should have realized how high the mattress would sit in this frame but I think it is a mistake on the part of the store to use a very thin mattress or platform and to not give a true picture of what the height of the bed would be with a realistic size mattress.
I’m going to run over to the store this afternoon and see if I can find a mattress that will work for me without requiring a stepladder to get in and out of bed! I guess there goes my sewing time this afternoon because I have a couple more errands and I’ll need to get my walk in when I get back. Maybe I can start cutting a little before the contractor gets around 12pm.
