Okay, yes, we've dragged a lot of curbside finds home. But when I planned on bringing Mom home post-surgery, her comfort was important. The hospital bed we had wasn't cutting it. So off to IKEA Savannah and I went, and we came home with a HEMNES day bed and a firm SULTAN HARESTUA mattress.
We dragged all this home in a Kia Soul, packed in like a world class game of Tetris. Seriously. The bed was partly in the front seat.
Add to this Sammy...
...and a bunch of IKEA hardware...
...oh, and a tool kit...
...and we have a little construction fun!
Behold the other reason we bought this particular model. Mom is in my Florida room until we assess her level of independence. We aren't sure if a free standing mother-in-law's quarters on our extra lot is in order, or if she needs a wheelchair accessible room and private bath added onto the house.
This baby has 3 deeeeeep drawers in the base for storage.
Bead board trim that fits in with my cottage style.
It encourages flexibility.
The construction is solid, with a wood frame supporting MDF, which I was thinking of doing myself.
How simple was it?
There was time for breaks. And he documented it. Kids.
The bottom also slides out to convert this to a king size for overnight space.
We're ready for the mattress!
This was rolled up like a rug. In fact, I was kinda worried I'd grabbed a mattress topper.
But it popped open and is super comfortable.
Now, if you're looking for redone curbside finds, come back Monday.
Oh, did I score...
