A New Bed = Clean Slate
Marriage and a new bed! Lots of excitement in my world lately!
I got married, on May 19th, I thought that once that was over things would start calming down a bit… I was totally wrong!
We received a NEW bedroom suit for our wedding gift, and we also got a new bed a SLEEP NUMBER BED!! YAY!
We had to completely de-clutter our room, I mean seriously cleaning. I moved in with my husband (so.. strange still to say) about 3 years ago. I still had boxes to unpack. Things not needed or old or just trash. I believe we cleared out over 15 bags of stuff.
It was not like an episode of Hoarders. But there was just stuff. Clothing, art supplies, pictures, books, more clothes…
We got the first round done in last Monday afternoon. Which was awesome! YAY US!
I went last Sunday (6/3) to IKEA with my sister, we pulled all the furniture that we wanted to order. Paid for it then took it over to home delivery.(I will say if you are thinking its better to have them deliver your stuff, just pull it then have them deliver, it is a next day delivery instead of 2 weeks, and a few bucks cheaper.)
Monday rolled around and the items delivered, the IKEA guys took it upstairs into the bedroom. Which was a plus because one of the boxes was over 150 pounds.. and that would have not been fun to try to take upstairs. It weighted more than I do.
So now with our cleared out room, we moved the mattress and box-springs off the bed-frame and set them aside. You can see why we needed a new bed, this set was my husbands since he was like 13 years old. It was not comfortable at all to sleep on, we actually were sleeping on the living room couches for the last few months. BOO.. so it was the best gift we could have ever asked for. Thank you Omi and Luis!
Seriously swept the carpet and started putting things together. The first thing was the new dresser for Jermie. MALM makes amazing stuff, very modern and sturdy. We were able to put it together in about 2 hours. (Ms Jolie approved… my kitty)
Then Jermie had to go to work.. and me already in the mood to get the bedroom complete, I started putting the new bed-frame together, which was also MALM and a platform bed. I had little Ms R helping me singing Jem and dancing. She was also a terrific helper with the tools.
Ms R is in love with these new fans, they are AWESOME!! Lasko Pro Performance Blower Fan (series 4900), after doing a LOT of research on fans, we bought 2 of these for the upstairs to try to keep from having to run the window air conditioner. Our room is a converted attic, which never had A/C installed. So far, after a week, they are seriously kicking butt!
Then Thursday we had a special delivery, our new bed! The Sleep Number Crew brought everything in and set it up within minutes. We did a quick run through of the bed and how it works.
And as you can tell the kitties love the bed. Our room is not close to being done. Now I totally want to paint it and still de-clutter some more, along with a few other pieces of furniture. Then it will be perfect! I am so happy that we have gotten this far! I can’t wait to make our room enjoyable, a place to go to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of life.
Hope you all had an amazing week, as amazing as mine!
XOXO – Jesy
