The Bed is Lifted!


We got a good start yesterday morning. Hubby bought the big chunks of wood, we marked them, and he got busy with his drill and some chisels.


See how the bed leg fits right into the recess he made? Perfect fit. No wobbles! This assures the legs will not slide off the supports.


We put purchased risers on the foot of the bed. BOOM! I have a new dust ruffle (bed skirt) ordered to fit the new height (and new curtains for the room, too). This 'lift' gives me more than 33 cubic feet of storage space (yes, I calculated this - always an engineer). Very HAPPY! That's like a new closet!

I also cleaned out two more drawers for more stuff to live. Where there's a will, there's way!

After we finished this project, we hung a curtain rod in my sewing room. New curtains coming to this room, too...

Today I'll get the bed made and try to get this room put back together. I'm SO ready to SEW again. I still have piles of things everywhere...dining room table, foyer table, counter tops.... I hope all this mess is gone today!

If I don't do anything else in the sewing realm...I at least want to prepare some hand sewing to work on. The last several nights I haven't had anything at the ready. I like my TV time to be productive.

Speaking of TV, I cancelled our trial month of HULU. We finished watching both The Handmaid's Tail and 11.22.63 in record time. I highly recommend both shows. I had already read The Handmaid's Tale book, but not 11.22.63. There were several differences between The Handmaid's Tale book and the show, but they ended the same way. I'm sure I drove Hubby crazy saying, "That wasn't in the book!) during every episode. He wasn't expecting to enjoy The Handmaid's Tale - it was not something he would have ever chosen to watch, but he liked it as much as I did.

Last night we started watching Land Girls on Netflix. So far, so good.

Better get to work! Have a fun day!

  1. I felt like ending it i lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage. We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him. He is living away near his work, and he refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope i was emotionally down . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I could and its eating me away and I'm starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ogudugu can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and I also came across several testimonies about this particular man so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ogudugu . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM. Thank you all for reading.

  2. That first comment is just weird - spam? I like the way you raised the bed. I have a high bed, too, though it's because of something else and I didn't intend it, but stuff definitely lives under there with the dust bunnies! I keep things there that I know I will need so it doesn't become out of sight, out of mind. =)
