Make a bed, and lay yourself in it
Jacob had a rare day off yesterday and got inspired to build the bed of my dreams...a copy more or less of something I had spotted a while ago in an IKEA catalog...it's a simple design, nothing fancy but the shelves hidden behind the headboard are ingenious...they keep clutter that tends to accumulate around beds (especially those inhabited by book and magazine readers, noseblowers, hand-creamers and etceterares)out of sight. I've been wanting our bedroom to be an oasis of calm and simplicity...now we got it...my vision is almost finished...
...it's so wonderful to have a handy husband...I spout off things and point to internet pictures...he goes to Lowes, comes back with boards and a few hours later, voila...I have my own custom-built, Swedish (actually, Alabama)-designed bed.
I slept well last night.
