    Happy happy happy for you!!!! As I always say ‘We’ll make it work!’ And you and Paul did just that. Determination is everything.

    Strangely evocative of Laurel & Hardy’s “The Music Box”… (without a pond) and I love that you need to be tied to the house while Paul is apparently superior at walking around without spontaneously falling over! Thank you.

    I love when you have videos because then I can share them with my husband and then he can see that someone else in this world has even more batshit crazy ideas and mine pale in comparison to yours. Don’t get me wrong I think you are still a rock star, but I use you as leverage when it comes to projects. Ps your husband is a genuis, but I think you are even smarter because you married him! 🙂

    Fantastically clever! BTW, if anyone says the video doesn’t play, ask them if they’re using Firefox….I had to switch to Chrome to get it to play. Can’t wait to see the bed all put together in it’s complete glory!

    I normally avoid blog posted videos like the plague but yours is so far beyond entertaining it ought to be mandatory viewing. I will watch ANYTHING you post. Everything about that video was rainbow sparkles. With unicorns. And glitter.

    So Victoria, you had me back at the acquisition of the kingdom mirror-but this bed thing is pretty darn good too! Loved the video. I would so enjoy seeing little videos spot tours of sections or projects within you home- maybe another video soon? I also am drawn to the opportunity to be privy to the workings of a great marriage – thank you for sharing and inspiring! I continue to be enamored with my “I can’t believe I have this!” craigslist painting I obtained after being promopted by your kingdom find. 80° in Arizona today- headed out for a hike. xoxo

    We had to take the base of our TempurPedic bed through a 2nd story window…it was a big slider window and the base JUST fit through the diagonal. We achieved this with me upstairs in the bedroom, my husband riding in a tractor loader bucket with the base, and our tween daughter at the controls of the loader !!!

    It worked. But when I was replacing the curtains on that window I hit my head on the running ceiling fan and cut it, prompting a trip to my mom the nurse to make sure I didn’t need stitches.
    This fall we moved that bed downstairs. Okay, I was gone, and so my husband and teenage daughter did it themselves. I don’t even want to know how.

    I think Paul is wonderful! My husband would have left it in the garage… no, wait! He wouldn’t even had gone after it. 🙁 It is lovely and so are you! Loved the video!

    This reminds me so much of us carrying my antique armoire that comes in three parts. It has a bonnet, then the cabinet (which has nothing to grip) and the lower cabinet w/ drawer. The middle cabinet is too big for most any opening. And now that its upstairs, my hubby claims it will stay there. We don’t have a roof like you do to climb onto but this gives me an idea if we ever move again.
    Thoroughly enjoyed your video!

    LOVE the video -so cute and so jealous of your find. Maybe not of all the work though. how did he remove the window to get it in? wow…
    PS – those 2 shutters on the 2nd floor bedroom window don’t’ belong -remove them! they only belong where it looks like they could actually close like the single windows. I think you’ll like the difference. but thats just the overly opinionated architect in me speaking.
