off the floor

DSCF3139_edited

it’s a miracle of sorts.  pathetic girl that i am have never slept with my mattress off the floor.  over the summer i bought a mid-century modern headboard and footboard (for just over $20,) but needed the rails to put the thing together.  and of course that didn’t happen right away.  i put the headboard against the wall behind my mattress and boxspring as a start, but let’s face it, that’s still cheating.  the mattress is still on the floor.

so i went to some discount furniture store and for 26 bucks i was able to get a set of bed rails and get myself up off the floor.  it’s really quite something.  it looks and feels strange to me now, but i gotta tell ya, i’m sleeping really well.

unfortunately, i can’t actually SEE the headboard anymore now that it’s off the floor.  i think i have to fashion some sort of slat system, remove the boxspring altogether and make it more of a platform style look.

and c’mon now.  if it took me THIS long to get a bed off the floor, it’ll take me another 20 years or so to figure out a slat system.
