bed 010

This was the other big purchase (though compared to the TV, it was peanuts financially.) As many of you know, my wife, my child and I have been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for the better part of a year. Before that it was a mattress on a box spring on the floor, and before that it was a mattress on a box spring on a shitty metal frame. When it comes to sleeping, we’ve really come down in the world. As such, a new bed has been a big priority for us.

We picked up the white Malm in queen from IKEA, and despite the horrors I went through to get this bed (they gave me the wrong pieces for half of the bed, so a return trip to Burlington was necessary) I’m pleased to say that we absolutely love it! Yet another piece of quality home furnishing from IKEA.

The bedspread and matching pillowcases are new too. They were a housewarming gift from the mother-in-law, and they’re the most comfortable faux-suede anything that I’ve ever buried myself in.

Isn’t the faux suede bedding the nicest? We got a duvet cover as a wedding present. It’s so soft and wonderful! I love that stuff..
