Let’s just say you could fit a LOT of little monkeys in our bed… which finally arrived yesterday! We ordered this bed from Naked Furniture in Ann Arbor, and it took FOREVER to get here. As in, we ordered it December 10. We were told at the time that it should be ready in 5-6 weeks. So after 7 weeks with no news, I called… and was told it would be another 7-10 days. So after two more weeks, I called again… and was told it would be another week. Seriously?! The delay was extra annoying because we’ve had boxes of clothes shoved in our closets all this time, since the storage bed doubles as our dressers. It turned out some component of the bed was back-ordered – but it would have been nice to get a call informing us of this fact, instead of calling and calling and having no idea if the thing would ever actually show up. That said, it took so long that we just about have the credit card charge paid off, ha!
Oh plus, it’s amazing.
I can’t tell if I just got used to the “mattress on the floor” set-up, or if it really is ridiculously enormous… Now I walk into our room and it’s WHOA BED in my face.
We spent a bunch of time yesterday getting the boxes of clothes unpacked into the drawers, but I figured no one really wanted to see photos of my sock drawer. We also mounted the bedside lamp/tables that I posted about a while back.
I think they look great on either side of the “window.” Which, by the way, allows me to pop my head up in the morning and do some bird-watching from bed. This morning I spied some common mergansers by our dock.
Here’s the other side of the room, where we’ve stashed a rocking chair that actually belongs to my sister. We still need to get a proper cushion for the little window seat between the closets.
Anyone who has known me for at least 25+ years will recognize the pair sitting in the window… Tigger and Erica! You can tell by the level of bedraggled-ness how much I loved these two as a kid.
And speaking of cute pairs, here’s a gratuitous shot of the boys. Elmo apparently thinks the carpet is just as comfy as his bed…
…However, they both agree that we clearly need to order some Doggy Steps so they can enjoy that ridiculously large bed.
