I thought I was just gonna put the finishing touches on my new pink, uh, Plum room but it couldn't be that easy for the person who is always messing up. Nope, got my regular box springs and mattress, slats laid out, and raised the bed six inches so I could accommodate a single drawer unit under the bed. Piece of cake. That's what I thought.
Then I try to get it to fit. Here's what happened. Nice. I try everything in the world I can think to get it to fit and came to the conclusion that this bed frame is so old it must be smaller than a standard. Not so. It finally hit me to USE THE INTERNET to get the correct dimensions and check that against the bed frame.
As you can see my wonderful idea of stacking books to raise the bed didn't work as I was trying to force a QUEEN size mattress into a regular bed frame! Yep, that's right I bought a queen size mattress for a regular bed!
In this case size DOES matter. Won't be getting an Einstein Award this week. AND to top that off blogger is freezing and giving me the blue circle dance. Maybe it's a sign I should go pick up walnuts.
