Silver Bed I
I had been wanting a platform bed for a while, and especially so once I moved in to my new place. I shopped around some and it seemed that my options were an overpriced bed that would cost a ton to ship, or something that was basically 2x4s and plywood that wasn't much cheaper. My sister's boyfriend had a cool platform bed and I said "gee, I'd like one like that" A few months later, I had one, silver.
When we were kids, Kate and I would watch TV in my room [yay old black and white Zenith] and I'd lie on my bed and she'd lie under it. She claims this is why she has asthma -- horse hairs drifting down over her while she lay there. We decided to recreate some of our childhood memories with the new furniture.
Thanks Ned and Kate. I love this bed.
