If you read my last post,
Here's a shot of my bedroom all rearranged, cleaned and waiting for the new bed.
The guys that delivered the bed put it together in less than 5 minutes. I had the new sheets and blanket, but didn't like the way the box spring looked, so took a quick trip up to Bed Bath and Beyond for a bed skirt. To install it, I had to take the mattress off the bed.
Damn that was a heavy sucker, but I managed.
I got the bed skirt on and and then put the mattress back. While trying to square up the mattress, I screwed up the bed skirt, so I had to go around the bed lifting and pulling until the bed skirt was on correctly.
Then I notice the mattress was on funny. It over hung on the sides. I measured it with a tape measure and found out the installer had put the mattress on 90 degrees off. That meant I had to turn the mattress.
I managed to do that, but you know what that meant? The bed skirt was all messed up again.
So it was back to lifting the mattress with one hand while pulling the bed skirt with the other. I even had to move the bed away from the wall to get behind it so I could do some pulling and lifting from the head of the bed.
Of course that moved the box spring on the frame when I did that. So now I had to try and move the whole bed back toward the wall about 4 inches with out moving the frame.
That was easier said than done, but I managed to move it most of the way. Not completely, but enough so it doesn't look out of position.
I made the bed and stood back proudly and took a picture for postarity. Here ladies and gentleman, and those of you that don't qualify for either of those, is my new bed.
The story doesn't end there.
The window behind my bed faces east, so the sun shines in it as soon as the sun comes up. I discovered that this morning. So the next thing is to get room darkener shades to solve that problem. I also have to order a headboard. Lori and I like to sit up in bed in the morning and watch TV while we use our laptops.
Sitting up while watching someone do your neither region is also nice too. ;-)
