I've been looking for a pair of night stands for the Guest room/Art's office for the longest time. The biggest problem was the bed's super height. When we were sleeping on it I felt like I could touch the ceiling. OK... I'm exaggerating. Anyway, it was very difficult to find night stands that would be tall enough.
And then... Hurrah! This pair came up yesterday, just in time for all our guests who will be arriving next week. The height was just right and I got them both for $130. Incredibly, the person who was selling them turned out to be a relative of a good friend of ours. Hawaii is like that. That was quite a surprise.
There were some scuff and paint marks on them and the legs were wobbly. A screw driver tightened the legs up perfectly and my fingernail managed to scrape off the paint. That was a surprise. Now they look almost brand new. Not exactly in our style but it matched our older looking furniture.
Bring on the guests!
Foot Update: I went to see the new orthopedic doctor today and Dr. Quinn said my foot is almost completely healed but it will be another two months for it to be truly like new because there is actually little blood supply going to that part of my foot. Art liked Dr. Quinn the best because he noticed that this doctor actually asked me to remove my shoe to look at and manipulate my foot instead of just studying the X-ray. I don't have to wear my cast anymore but he wants me to get new gym shoes.
Bed Update: I e-mailed Chris, the owner of America's Mattress who sold us our bed and told him my concerns. He wrote back right away, "Kay, the latex will not get body impressions, however, the Tranquility has convuluted foam and Body Loft foam in the quilt which give it some softness. Slight body impressions are normal and supposed to occur as the material mold to your body's impressions."
Chris also said he was going home and sleeping on his Tranquility mattress and would take notice of what kind of body impressions he can see. I do have to say I've been sleeping through the night without getting up (except last night) and the bed is comfortable. I just have to find a good pillow. Art says he's fine with anything and that he can sleep on the wood floor just fine, too. He can be so aggravating.
