On a different bedroom note, we got our storage bed from IKEA. However, there was a little problem. When we bought it, it said there were 2 packages total to complete the bed. WRONG! Apparently there were three because we don't have the steel beam that runs parallel down the middle to support the box spring. We realized we would have also needed the wooden slats since our box spring needs support the opposite direction. Anywho....Michael took matters into his own hands and decided instead of driving back to IKEA (an hour+ drive) that he would fix himself.
He bought 2 x 4s and created a support system himself:
The only problem is it lifts the bed at least 3 inches higher than we had anticipated the bed sitting. I practically need a step ladder to get into bed! Luckily my Michael's brother-in-law is coming up this way next week from near where IKEA is and will be bringing up the proper parts so we can lower the bed.
A bit ridiculous don't you think?!
