Anyway, it’s the 1st day and I already made some nicks and scratches on it. Haha. What do you expect from a guy who backed up his car into a rock and put a dent in his bumper. There was a note in the drawers that said nicks/scratches could be covered up with mar or touch-up stick. Guess I’ll be dropping by my local Lowes this weekend.
The reason I accidentally ended up scratching it was due to the fact I was quite unaccustomed to the new height of the bed. All my previous beds and even my parents’ bed are only knee height. Meaning I can sit on the bed and my feet can touch the floor. With this new bed, the height of my bed is up to my waist and I even stood there for a minute or two trying to decide on how to actually climb (literally) into bed. I mean before, I would just turn around (back facing bed), sit down, and then lie down. Now I actually have to hop or push myself up onto it.
However, during dinner with Xyon, he told me there’s actually a purpose to the box spring. It’s to keep the mattress level so it doesn’t bend and warp, providing equal support to the base of the mattress. That made sense, so I’ve now reinstalled the box spring, and ended up with some scratches on the bed frame.
I also purchased some sheets (Eddie Bauer® Home Solid Flannel for $20 after 20% off coupon) over the weekend for the bed and they turned out quite nicely. The set came with 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, and 2 pillowcases. I opted to use the fitted sheet, but I’m not exactly sure if there’s a purpose for the flat sheet. I wonder if it’s used to cover the box spring.
My down comforter I got from Costco a long time ago when I first moved up here was already Queen sized (apparently the only size they sell at Costco), so I had no need for a new comforter.
All the handles on the dresser and nightstands were inverted for shipping. I was instructed by the delivery people all I had to do was unscrew it and screw them back in on the opposite side. It was a bit tedious, but it didn’t take as long as I had expected.
