Believe it or not, we have made a decision on one thing. After two years, we've decided on a bedroom furniture set! I can hardly believe it! Our children will probably fall off their chairs. They are very familiar with how long it takes us to make a decision. You should watch us at a Burger King counter. It used to drive the kids nuts.
The problem we had was in buying an Eastern King mattress. Hawaii has mostly California Kings. However, because Art goes to bed a lot earlier than me, I thought we should get the wider Eastern mattress that would have enough room so that I wouldn't disturb him.
There are very few Eastern King bedroom sets and even fewer that we like. Then I had an idea. Why not see if we can buy a bed frame at Slumber World and then try going next door to Home World and see if we can find a bedroom set to match?
Incredibly, we have come pretty close, I think. Irene, our sales associate at Home World took a drawer from the cherry wood set and we walked over together to Slumber World and checked on the color match with their Eastern King platform frame. It was Slumber World's Karene who suggested we do this. Woo hoo! It worked. Well, it worked with the floor model. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the furniture delivered will also match as nicely. (And yes, the bedroom set was on sale. Were you wondering?)
We'll be getting the night stands next week, but the rest of the furniture won't get here until November-January. That's the price we pay for living in Hawaii.
It's taken us two years to make this decision and I sure am glad it's over!
Now... for the other stuff. Sigh. I wonder how long it will take us to get this move to Hawaii completed.
