we broke it
I know this is not for everyone, but I like to have the baby in my room for the first year. In his crib of course, which has already arrived. I'm not comfy with a baby in the bed. No way. So to make room for the crib we had to rearrange our room to a less designed feel. We moved the side table, dresser and chest and then proceed to move the bed. We spin it around and almost have it in place, when you hear a crack............ the side where the rails insert into the headboard literally rips right off the headboard. WHAT! oh my! This sets only about 7 years old. I would expect bedroom furniture to last more than 7 years. I guess not. That means now we are on the search for a new bed for us also. We're not rushing by no means, as we don't really want to buy anything until we get the house in 2-3 more years. In the mean time we are looking. We really don't know what kind color or style we want this time.
Is it crazy thinking a bed should last alot longer than this? Maybe it has something to do with being in the military and moving so often. It was moved 5 times in those 7 years so maybe the setting it up and taking it back down took its toll. I don't know. How long have you had your bed set?
I'll leave you with 2 sets were are thinking about. I like them both for different reasons. The only requirements are tall headboard must be over 50 inches tall, and must have a footboard. I have a crazy fear of someone under the bed and grabbing my feet without one. If you see anything out there send me the link.
