What lurks beneath the bed

When Eli gets home this weekend, he’s in for a surprise.

We’ve been redoing his bedroom, hanging the Star Wars curtains he begged for (but was convinced he’d never get), painting a ceiling fan black to go with the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker fan pulls that came with the curtains, installing a Star Wars light switch cover. He’s going to flip out when he sees it all!

We also decided it would be a good time to put in a different bed. My grandfather had a cool c.1941 metal army bed that we repainted and put in Eli’s room. Besides the sentimentality of this piece, we love it because the bottom of the mattress sits a good foot or so above the floor. And he is not getting a dust ruffle as he had before. Why, you might ask?

Because THIS is what we found when we removed his old box spring:

Yeah, all those times he supposedly cleaned his room quickly, guess where it all went? I am such a sucker!

Put on your best “Mommie Dearest” screech and say it with me: “NO MORE DUST RUFFLES!”

Poor kid. His game is up.

  1. Ha … love the pic of what’s under his bed. Christopher has a “mate’s bed” so there is no “under the bed” to stash things … but he manages to lose socks, books and toys between the wall and the bed, and in numerous other places, so I don’t know if it really helps!
