After three tiresome days of working on our new guest bed, it is finally complete! And why, you ask, did it take us three days to put together a bed when the frame itself was delivered and set up for us? Well, I'll tell you. Because my husband had to build this:
The mattress we bought is one of those memory foam mattresses. You have to lay it on a flat surface and not a box spring so there is no give. Well, the flat boxes they sold online were like $400! Um, for a box? No. So Matt decided to build us one! It was his first really big project and I think he did a wonderful job.
Here he is attaching the tops:
We finished the night by putting the mattress on and dressing up the rest of our beautiful bed! Check it out:
Obviously the room itself needs some work...but you should've seen it before. Picture an empty room because the night stand and the chest are also new. Big improvement people! And the bed is so comfy!
And to make my parents' experience just that much more fabulous...I finally did what I have wanted to do for all of my guests! Yes, you guessed it. I made towel animals!
Matt was a huge help with these animals...seeing as I had only figured out the cobra before he got home and had been at it for quite some time. My cow and gorilla were big FAILS. Thanks sweetie!
