We've been sleeping on the floor now for quite a while. The problem is Hawaii doesn't carry very many Eastern (regular) King bedroom sets and none that we liked.
I looked on Craigslist and found people asking ridiculous prices for their Eastern King platform beds, never mind the few bedroom sets I've seen.
I wondered then if I could just buy an Eastern King platform bed at Slumberworld and then go over next door to Homeworld to pick up a bedroom set that might match. What are the chances?
Incredibly, we were actually able to find something we could be happy with in August. Unfortunately, it always takes a long time to ship stuff to Hawaii. We were able to get the two nightstands, but not the rest of the furniture. They will arrive in November. (You know what? I actually bought the bed new for almost the same price they were asking on Craigslist.)
The bed arrived on Monday, but...the side rail and foot board had imperfections. Slumberworld is very good about making things right. (We really appreciated our sales associate, Karene who always followed through.) They sent over two guys to put the bed together with better pieces.
Unfortunately, after they left we noticed that the headboard was a little wobbly. Art discovered that the cam and screw were stripped so I've put in a call to Slumberworld to make that correction.
We're quite pleased at how the pieces are matching up. We'll be keeping our fingers crossed that the Homeworld November pieces (dresser and chest) will not have so many imperfections. One can only hope.
We bought that cedar chest some 25 years ago at an estate sale in Illinois. We're happy that it seems to match the rest of the furniture too. Yae!
Do furniture pieces these days not have as good quality control as 20 years ago? Or is it just me expecting too much?
