This is what $3,000 looks like

Our Tempur-pedic mattress was delivered today, it all it's rock-hard glory:

What does $3,000 smell like?  Well, it's less 'Chanel' and more 'chemical spill.'  Let's hope it airs out soon.  Also, check out my old mattress looking ashamed in the hallway:

Yes, old mattress.  You should be ashamed.  I will review this massive purchase after we get a couple nights sleep on it.  You know, when it softens up and doesn't smell like a latex factory.

i love your lamps! i'm crushing on them for my own bedroom which is now decorating more like 'early hurricane' than anything else.

We just bought a latex mattress and LOVE it! Hopefully it'll air out soon!

Very exciting! Hope the smell goes away soon!

Looks good...Did you get a new headboard? I likey

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Mrs. Chic - it's the same headboard, but no pillows are blocking it in these pics. My super crafty mom made that tufted headboard for me a few years ago, isn't it rad?

Emily @ Waldo Bungie said...

So jealous! We have a bed with a couple inches of tempurpedic on the top...it's heaven! I can't imagine having a whole bed made of it! Have you tried febrezing it to get the smell to go away?

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Hmm...Febreze the bed? I'm intrigued by this idea....

Amanda said...

Ew, sorry to hear about that odor... looking forward to hearing the review, though! I agree, Febreze or some type of fabric refresher might help.

My husband is really wanting one of those so let us know how it goes.

Well, it looks like a well worth purchase. It looks like your old mattress is lerking in the background. :-P

Too funny. Hope it stops smelling like chemical spill soon. I just replaced our shower liner and the bathroom is reeking with that yucko plastic smell, so I can relate. Ha.

I'm cracking up at the mattress "looking ashamed" in the hallway.

I never knew a mattress post could be so funny.

Off-gassing sucks. Hope the new mattress works out in time.

Meg said...

OK, excited to hear how the mattress turned out AND I LOVE the tufted headboard! I have a soft spot for all things tufted! Can I please have your master bedroom? It's everything I want!

hi there! How did your mom make your headboard?

Lynn said...

We have this bed and love it, the smell does go away!

Hi Sara!

I just found your blog and love it! I've been reading through all your old posts.

I was just curious, now that you've slept on your new mattress for a couple months, what do you think of it? Was it worth the price tag? My husband and I are in the market for a new mattress so I'd love to hear a review of the Temperpedic.

Thanks!
