As I write this, I'm sitting next to my bed watching the mattress fill. Yay! If all goes well, I get to sleep in my own bed tonight for the first time in a whole week. My couch is perfectly lovely and surprisingly comfortable to sleep on, but I really rather prefer my bed.
I took advantage of the bed's disassembly to add attachment points all around the outside. The design is simple-- 3/4" plywood that's exactly the same size as the mattress, with pad eyes all around the perimeter. They hide nicely under the mattress when they aren't in use, and each one is rated for 800# of load. I think that should be sufficient, ya think?
Aah, the bed finished filling while I was typing this. Now begins the laborious process of getting the air bubbles out. Envy me!
