Building a Bed

image
The assembled bed @ IKEA.

So, I bought a bed and mattress at work today. I got the Trondheim bed frame and the Sultan Hanestad mattress. I’m sitting on the living room floor typing this up and thinking about a bite to eat to get me through the build. I’m really excited! This is my first non hand-me-down bed. It feels really good… and totally grown up. 🙂

Above is a pic of the bed from IKEA’s website and below are my pics of the chaotic pile of parts on the living room floor. I’ll be posting an extra post tomorrow to show you the bed all made up… After they deliver the mattress!

The side rails and the box scraps. I kind of shredded the box while opening it!

The baggie with all the screws, nuts, bolts, and etc. in it.

Slats… since this is a platform style bed.

I’m going to try to finish this tonight… Ciao, for now!
