Well, Craigslist here they come. Maybe.
The beds are IMPOSSIBLE to make. And we haven’t even bought a frame that would surely further complicate making the beds.
First of all, the manufacturer of the beds recommended a full surround zippered EZ mattress cover but it has a slippery quality about it, so the fitted sheet has a very difficult time staying put, unlike when we used a quilted mattress cover on our old traditional king bed where the fitted sheet stayed snug.
The fitted sheet skitters all over the mattress cover, creating creases and pockets and lumps and bumps, oh my. I am The Princess of The Princess and The Pea and my sheets must be flat and tucked in and neat. These are anything but. Awful.
We (I, who am I kidding, only one of us makes the bed) can’t IMAGINE how much harder this would be to make if we had bought a frame, like the one we liked at Pottery Barn. The two halves could not be separated to get in-between to make them, right? I’d be climbing over the beds and reaching in, swearing like a sailor the whole time.
I’m going to experiment with using different mattress covers, keeping the fitted twins but using a king flat and a king blanket, rather than twins of those. Bottom line, this is an expensive experiment that isn’t going well. The adjustable part of the bed aspect is fine but the housekeeping aspect is anything but fine.
Any words of wisdom?
