One week before we found her furniture, I broke Gia's old dresser. The tracks fell off the side of the drawers and were not fixable. So, we were forced to find some kind of solution. Ralph and I have had fantastic luck with CraigsList and this time was no different.
Two days of browsing, emailing and phone calls galore we found the perfect set. This entire set is forty some odd years old and was both the gal we purchased it from and her daughters. To top it off, they offered to deliver it to our house in their truck FOR FREE. WOW. Sometimes we meet the nicest people.
So Saturday morning we got up and moved everything out of Gia's room cleaned all the stuff, threw out the junk and started planning our attack. We headed over to Ikea and purchased two new mattresses. Which we are now advocates for Ikea's sleep solutions. They are awesome. They come with a twenty five year warranty. They are reasonably priced. If you need a new mattress, go to Ikea. Now. A good nights sleep is so worth it.
