Ninja Man and I have purchased a few beds in our 41 years of marriage. While none of them were bought with much enthusiasm (sadly, a bed is a necessity, much like a new toilet seat) I have to say I couldn’t wait for this last one to arrive.
So, here’s the thing. In 41 years we have aged as well as expanded. Yeah. That queen sized bed was replaced with a king over 10 years ago.
In that time, Ninja developed a kicking thing and I developed a menopause thing that, combined, was awful. And by “awful”, I mean absolutely hellacious. I spent many, many nights on the sofa and many irritable days after little sleep due to our combined kicking/menopause syndrome.
When we bought our RV, it came with a king bed that is on a wooden platform. This became a solution- BUT what I found for Six Little Acres is DA BOMB!
It’s two twin beds on a platform.
Oh yes it is.
What’s a platform bed? Well, here’s the video we found and it has storage underneath! Check it out here.
First, we bought only one because I was here by myself for several weeks. It comes in a box, all rolled up in a bundle with the air sucked out. It was pretty cool unwrapping it. The price for two of these was SO much less than any queen or king mattress we’ve ever bought.
I’m not compensated for this- just wanted to share because it’s such a great solution for us.
Now- I have no idea how long these things will last but so far, so good.
And while I’m not ready to do a home tour since we are still unpacking, this is how the bed looks now. I know the pillows are not properly plumped for the blog world, but hey, it is what it is. I still have a room FULL of boxes to unpack. I get a pass, right? Hard to tell it’s not one mattress.
Unless you have a kicker or menopausal crazy lady keeping you awake.
He can kick and I can toss and turn. We are sleeping like a dog in the sun. I know that for sure because here’s my dog. Almost asleep. In the sun.
Oh and here he is in between the mattresses. He likes it there.
While we DO have to push the mattresses back together each morning, we are working on a way to keep them as “one”- meanwhile it’s a good solution for Six Little Acres.
And now I’m gonna take a nap.

Also please keep Baby Wren in your prayers. She’s on a new cancer therapy and we need this one to be “the cure”.
