Of course, there was no perfect bedroom set but we were able to compromise on a set that we both liked.
My main wish was for a bed that I could "climb up into". The problem with that wish was that most of the "tall" beds were four poster beds and Hubs was not in the mood for that.
We found a Thomasville bed on display at a local furniture store and it fit the clean lines that Hubs wanted and it was "tall" enough to suit me. The problem was that once we received the bed we ordered in our home, it wasn't as tall as I had remembered it being. My heart sunk! I went back to the furniture store to look at the display. Their bed was much taller than our bed. Hmmm. . . what was different?
I got nosey and lifted up the comforter on the bed. It revealed their secret. The secret was that the display bed had two - count them - two box springs topped with one mattress. The extra box spring gave the bed enough height to make it "tall" without covering up too much of the headboard.
