First Item of New Furniture

POST #    821

Table (top) and bed.

After work tonight, I went to West Elm and bought my first new items for my apartment. The queen size platform bed and the rectangular block coffee table.

West Elm also has a white glove service for the assembly and delivery, but since my apartment isn't ready yet and I didn't want to pay the extra money, I decided to go directly to the store. I've since figured out that there is a reason that they have white glove service for the bed - it's huge! The salesperson said that it would fit in the car and boy was he wrong. It pretty much hung out the back. It was really heavy too. Luckily, I got it home okay.

What the furniture will eventually look like, I hope:

yes, minor publishing error.

thanks lauren. i'm sure it won't look anything like that since i won't have those sheets or the wherewithal to continuously keep it that neat.
