Mmm...Smells Like Lacquer in Here!

Four long years of mattresses on the floor have finally come to an end with the delivery of our brand-new bed today! I'm just so happy, I don't know how to act. I feel like a real, true adult now. New furniture can do that to you.Jason worked on this project off and on for a couple of weeks, with the help and tools of a cabinet maker across the road from us. I am so proud of him! (Aren't you proud of him?) I printed a picture of what I wanted, sketched a few details, gave some measurements, and he did it!
My Dad lent a hand too. He and Jason mixed three different colors of stain to grant my picky-picky wish.
I should have removed the boxes of Kleenex and stacks of running magazines before I took pictures, but the room is a lot cleaner than it normally is. And look! I'll be able to reach my lamp all calm and sophisticated-like now, instead of heaving myself skyward, flailing for the switch. Ooh.

Sweet dreams!

Looks great... and the color is perfect! Just hope you don't need to roll out of bed quickly in the middle of the night and forget how high it is. :)

WOW! And I never knew YOU had a blog, either! I actually hardly ever write here now - I mostly use my wordpress to blog. But I'm glad I found you here!

By the way, this bed is GORGEOUS!!!! WOW!!!!

Maybe you'll get to read some of my posts over at www.flashthoughts.wordpress.com

I don't think you just "stumbled" on to mine, either - I'm sure the Lord led you all the way *smile*
