We had our mattress for almost 10 years. Rich bought it just before our wedding in 2002. It wasn't expensive or fancy and it demonstrated its wear on our backs these past few months.
So we bit the bullet, took the Christmas gift money from Rich's folks and finally bought a nice mattress. It's one of those memory foam ones and my God, we L.O.V.E. it.
Of course a new mattress meant a mini-makeover of our master bedroom. Here are some before and afters.
