You’re going to what?!

Our headboard is huge, I mean really, really huge. 6 ft tall and however wide a queen sized bed is. It would absolutely NOT fit up the stairs… nope not going, no way. The Mr. who is very handy… annoyingly so… tells me, “I’m going to cut it half.”  You’re going to WHAT? My big beautiful headboard?? No Way… can’t we just store it and I’ll DIY a new one…(aww, the plans that rolled through my brain) Nope, he says, I’m cutting it half, besides where would we store it? Won’t go up the stairs… it really won’t go down the stairs. So we sleep on the mattresses on the floor for the first week, then Saturday rolls around, The Mr. pops over to Lowes to pick up a few things, to” fix” the headboard. Outside he goes and…. cuts the legs off the headboard. Not at all what I had envisioned him doing when he said he was going to cut it half. He hauls it up stairs (now that it fits) and proceeds to put it all back together and it must be said… True to his word, you can’t even tell.
