I shared on Instagram the other day that we finally got a new bed in our Master Bedroom. This was 2 years in the making, because if you don’t know I am the cheapest person. We have moved 4 times with the previous bed and loved it, but they aren’t made to move that much. Each time it got a little worse until we moved to our current home just over two years ago.
We were asleep one night and all of a sudden we hear a huge cracking noise and our heads fall about a foot below our feet. It was hilarious but in the middle of the night not so much. One of the base pieces had cracked in half. That really should have been the moment we got a new bed, but instead I felt I could fix it. I went to Home Depot and made my own slats. It was actually really easy. That would work for a bit but every couple months we would have to take the mattress and box spring off and reset them and fix them because they weren’t actually made for the bed.
During this 2 year period I finally also gave in and got a new mattress and box spring. Our mattress was 10 years old and was the cheapest thing I could find when we bought it new so it wasn’t the greatest quality but it was never meant to last 10 years. I made it last though lol During all these moves the box spring also broke somewhere inside and was so noisy if you even took a deep breath. Looking back this is all just so funny to me.
I seriously couldn’t sleep most night because if you moved it was like a concert of noises lol
So we did it, we gave in and got a new bed. We looked at several stores but ended up back at Nebraska Furniture Mart. They have a huge selection at all price points, plus you can pick up the same day you purchase. (They do have delivery) We got ours on a close out deal and absolutely love it. It really brightened up our room by eliminating such a large piece of dark wood.
We have gotten our last several pieces at Nebraska Furniture Mart and each time has been a great experience. We recommend.
