How to make a heavenly bed.
I’m not sure why some people are so good at this and others don’t seem to really have the knack, but sadly, I fall into the later group. Sure, I know what I’m supposed to do to make a heavenly bed, but somehow my bed making skills just don’t measure up. My mom makes a great bed, The Four Seasons makes great beds and Steven Whitehead, the guy in this video, shows he has what it takes.
If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy watching this short video to see how you might improve. I don’t take the time to fold and tuck in the corners at the foot of the bed as demonstrated here, so I think I’ll try that! Of course, Frette linens could hold the secret to a luxurious sleep nest. (Curious? Here’s a link to set of Frette linens I found on Amazon – Frette Charme Cotton Sateen Bedding Set King Set White.)
When I was newly married I found myself at a department store white sale. I loaded up with the most fabulous duvet, sheets, and pillowcases I could find and headed to the register. When the total was 3 times what I expected it to be – not everything was on sale – I was too embarrassed to tell the sales woman that I couldn’t afford the purchase. Instead I whipped out my charge card, swallowed hard and headed home with every intention of boomeranging back to the store the next day with a massive return.
Once I got home, my husband was still at work, so I decided to just SEE how the bedding would look in our room. The next thing I knew, I had opened everything, made the bed, fallen in love all over again and had no chance what-so-ever of repackaging and returning my bounty.
Lucky for me, my husband found the new sheets to offer the most amazingly comfortable night’s sleep, so all I had to do was quit smoking and eating so I could pay off the sheets without impacting our newlywed budget! Those sheets and that duvet ended up lasting more than ten years – longer than many marriages.
Thankfully, I’ve figured out how to tell a sales clerk when something is more than I want to spend. I know the value of a good night’s sleep, a happy husband and great sheets. And I don’t miss smoking, at all!
