After almost 16 years we finally took the plunge and bought ourselves a new bed, night stands, a mattress, an ottoman, and bed linens. It was so exciting shopping with Tim to pick out our stuff together. We very rarely go shopping together. Usually I shop during the day while he is at work.
We bought a memory foam mattress from Sam’s Club. We slept on it last night for the first time. We had to let it expand completely before sleeping on it. Tim slept like a baby. I tossed and turn a bit. I think I just need to get used to it. When I woke up I didn’t have a backache. That was wonderful. I have a memory foam pillow. Tim gave it to me two Christmas’s ago. I love it.
We went to 8 stores looking for a new comforter set for the bed. Of course the last place we went is where we found one we really liked. We saw one at Belk’s that was pretty, as well as pretty expensive. In the end we passed on it. It was dry clean only. Way to much maintenance for me.We still need to paint the room, makes curtains, and recover the ottoman.
The ottoman has beetles on it. We got it really cheap. We are going to buy some material to recover it soon.
