As one of the final steps of the purge, I finally unloaded my California King sleighbed frame via craigslist today to a couple of supercool new parents up near LAX. I trust they’ll enjoy it for many years. Here’s a final look at it as it gets hauled up the 405.
As an aside, I feel compelled to point out that I don’t think there is a more ridiculous invention on the planet than a sleighbed frame. I mean, think about it. It’s the most space-consuming, gaudy, impractical thing Man has ever come up with. You can’t slide into bed from the foot. You can’t even hang a hat on it.
I’ve downsized to a simple platform frame, California King. No headboard, no footboard. This saves me a good five feet of floor space; I feel like I can actually breathe now. And those soft mattress corners around the perimeter are so much more, well, practical.
