I got a new bed!

I haven't had a real bed in about a year (long story...filled with love, betrayal, and epic struggle) and a few weeks ago I found a free cherry wood sleigh bed on Craigslist that was broken and needed repairs. The dowels on the right side's head and foot boards were ripped off, leaving a huge gash that needed to be repaired. Well, I didn't care so much for aesthetics, so I just bored out a larger chunk of the boards and screwed in replacement wood. Then I just cut a slit with the circular saw and then used nuts and bolts as dowels. Now I have a sweet bed!


Just bored out a squared section, replaced it with a wood block to create a structure, cut a slit, screwed in a large nut and capped it with a bolt to recreate the dowels.

Sick free bed!

Before I was using a very basic metal frame that offered no back support. This baby sleeps like a dream!

Always check if it makes noise when doing you know "the moves" that is just annoying if it does.

You gonna lose that bed to Yoshi girl though.

Good, I had a wooden bed like that, shit made so much noise and it was back then when my mom used to live with me, so I had to be very careful when there was a girl around. At one point I got tired of that I just drop kicked it threw the woods out and put my bed on the floor. Haven't regret that since then.

Not bad! My bed is a mattress on the floor that I lift up against the wall when I'm not using. It actually used to be a proper bed till I got pissed off with the thing taking up so much room that I destroyed it and kept the mattress. Needless to say parents were not pleased. I loled as I did it. Now I have a second bookshelf in my room. Epicness.

Alucard I knew you were the biggets weaboo here but sleeping on the floor? Thats crossing the line with your Japan obsession. As punishment you are only allowed to play western PC games for a week! That will cure you.

Sleeping on the floor (well, on a mattress) is actually more healthy, and better for the back. I do sleep on a bed though, which will be changed really soon since I'm moving to another house soon and need new furniture.

The floor is better for the back, worse for the hips.
