Boxspring Update

I wonder if we've voided our warranty?

One week has gone by with our Boxspring leaning against our dining room wall - precariously I might add.

You may remember that we were unable to coax our Queen-size mattress support up our stairs to the second floor, which created our annoying Boxspring dilemma. Suzanne completed the preliminary task of taking the fabric off the frame, and my dad came over with his DeWalt Reciprocating Saw to finish the job. We decided if we couldn't have this boxspring, nobody would.

Then something strange happened. My heart grew three sizes that day, and I felt goodwill towards all boxsprings.

We cut the wooden part of the frame up the middle and bent the metal part of the frame backwards, creating a sort of hot dog bun out of the boxspring. Because of this ingenious folding, it was narrow enough to get upstairs. Huzzah!

We placed it on the floor of the bedroom upside down. We cut 7 super-lucky lengths of wood, and I began screwing the broken frame together again. Once Suzanne reattaches the fabric, all I need is a powerful jolt of electricity, and our Frankenbed will COME ALIVE! Muhuhahahaaa!

Sure beats the two footed coaxing I gave mine.

Remind me never to stay over at your place. I'm afraid of this Frankenbed you speak of.

would have been much easier to indeed, DONATE the box springs to the GOOD WILL and buy one of those INFLATABLE mattresses!

I still say you should have taken off the banister. Then you could be like those rocket scientists who got the futon only part way up the stairs. You'd have gotten the boxspring partway up and then gotten trapped around that corner. Who doesn't want part of a matress set in their stairwell?

Okay, here's the thing. Maybe I LIKE to do things the hard way. Did you ever think of that? Huh? Yeah.

And those rocket scientists were just looking for some attention. Who doesn't want mattresses or boxsprings stuck in their stairwell? Good question. Maybe I'll do a poll.

If I may enter the poll.. I enjoy a good rest on the stairway, but what most houses are missing is a good mattress and boxspring stuck there.

I'm no rocket scientist, but I think it would be a nice addition. I'm thiking of putting in a pull out on my landing.
