New Futon

May 8, 2011 at 11:01 am 4 comments

Hello readers! I haven’t been able to keep this blog updated as frequently as I would like to due to being so busy with work and school. I only have one class this summer though, so hopefully I can post more often.

Jeff and I recently bought a futon for our spare bedroom. Before this, the only furniture in the spare bedroom was a craft desk that I use for wrapping gifts, scrapbooking, and framing photos. This futon will be great for overnight guests. The previous option for an overnight guest was either the couch or the air mattress. The futon is a lot more comfortable! We bought it at Sleep Source in Cleveland Heights. The nice thing with that store is that you can choose any combination of frame and mattress. There were so many to choose from! We ended up spending $600 after the delivery charges. You can definitely get a futon cheaper than that, but the quality will not be as good. Here is the new futon!

We also decided it would be a good idea to buy a cover for the mattress in order to protect it. Luckily Sleep Source had a deal where if you buy your futon there, you can get 50% off a cover. We picked a nice colorful one!

I am happy that we finally have some furniture in the spare bedroom instead of just boxes! I would actually consider the room to be a multi purpose room rather than your average guest room. Since we don’t have guests very frequently, it makes sense to keep the craft desk in there so we can get more use out of the space.

    I don’t know how much delivery charges were, but we could have probably helped you deliver this to your house. I’m not sure, but a U-Haul van is $30 + .99 cents a mile. (so between $70-$80 to your door) Sometimes it’s a hassle hauling something yourself, but if you save much, it’s pretty worth it. 🙂 Looks like a really nice quality futon though, hope you get your money’s worth!

      Thanks, that is a nice offer! The delivery was $60, not too bad but you are right, renting a U-Haul would be a good idea. I’ll keep that in mind!
