The new bed has been delivered.
The old broken mattress has been picked up.
The old bed is waiting for its new owner.

We built the new bed with industrial efficiency and had it all in place within four hours (including the surrounding shelving and final skirting boards as well as replacing the ceiling light and the curtains).
(Nothing else is considered essential enough at this point.)

The room is beautiful.

Total cost out of pocket about €650 (€250 floor boards, paint, tools, side shelves, curtain cleaning; the rest payment for the bed after IKEA deducted the price for the eight year old broken mattress.) It will be reduced even further when we manage to sell the old bed frame. 

The new bed is heavenly.
Just wonderful.
Pure bliss.
