My mom shocked me this morning and took me to a local furniture store in a nearby town and bought me a brand new mattress (a pillow top kind) and box spring and metal frame $530 total...it's only a Full Size which is what I wanted OR a daybed with a trundle bed underneath... my new bedroom will not fit my queen size sleigh bed sadly and the twin bed that I had owned for 4 years which never was used.... is ungodly uncomfortable.

My mom has 3 really nice antique full beds at her house that we've picked up at garage sales or auctions and I was trying to convince her to give me one of those and I'd replace it with my queen bed. Well that apparently unnerved her to some bizarro degree and off we went to the furniture store.

My bed is coming on Wednesday morning. I also picked out a gorgeous ginormous area rug for my living room. And then went a step further and picked out a gorgeous chocolate brown microfiber couch that looks leather. A bit higher in my price range but apparently I can trade in my twin bed, my sleigh bed and mattress, box spring and the owner will take off from the couch price. Why would I ever dream of shopping anywhere else??? Plus they deliver for free!!!

The couch is another story. Another blog post. Another day.
