Making the Most of an Air Mattress for Guests December 18, 2011
My sailor son and his wife got into town Friday night, only to drive 3-plus hours to Redding, for a wedding yesterday.
Now, they’re heading here, to spend Christmas with us! Woo-hoo! I’ve done my best to make his old empty room into a comfy place to stay, despite the fact that we are still minus furnishings for the room. I promised that they’ll have a real bed for their next visit, but this time around, it’s going to be an aero bed. Bob and I have slept on them before and they’re amazingly comfortable, all things considered.
In order to make it as nice for them as possible, I topped the mattress with a feather bed mattress topper that I had on hand, which I covered with a mattress pad, before adding the sheets. Then I topped the bed with a coverlet and comforter in a duvet cover.
I framed a picture from their wedding, for the room as well as a little watercolor Jessica gave me, to make them feel like they really were at home. I even placed my new dog from Veranda, that I love, on a nightstand.
Tomorrow, I’ll share some pictures of my new estate sale purchases, so stay tuned!
All the best,
