    As you stand in the doorway of your bedroom, you realize that you
    have no idea how to make a bed! You start to panic and your palms
    become sweaty as you look at the bare bed. All it is now is a matress
    on top of a bed base. Nothing more.
    So what... read more

    When you are the last person in the bed, get in the middle of the bed, pull up the covers up to the top of your head.  Then get out of bed, it is now easier to make the bed by yourself.  I know if I don't make my bed first thing in the morning, I have a harder start to my day.  How nice it feels to walk in and out of the room throuhout the day, seeing my bed made and room gives me a clean, complete feeling.  Have a Happy Day:)

    Whats the point?

    As long as all the bed linen is washed and cleaned frequently, what is the point in spending too much time every day making the bed anyway?  You will only spend 6 or 8 hours tonight putting it back exactly as you have it now?  Give the duvet a quick shake and a stroke of the hand and put the pillows back in position, and away, job done!!

    Obviously the first thing you need to put on is the bottom fitted sheet.
    Firstly tuck the top right corner of the bottom sheet under the mattress, then do the bottom left corner; or vice versa. Then move on to the two corners that are left.
    By doing opposite corners, it stops the bottom sheet from being tucked over too much on the one side, as it pulls the sheet evenly across the mattress.

    Then you move onto the pillow cases. I usually put two pillows into one pillow case (Makes them seem chunkier) So they're much more comfortable.
    Pull your pillow cases inside out, then reach into the cases grabbing the two corners with your hands. You then hold the two corners of your pillow with the same hands that are inside the pillow case, and you stand up and tip them upside down to give them abit of a shake so as the case can fall over the sides of the pillow. You then just pull the remaining piece of material over the rest of the pillow with your hands.
    That same method applys when trying to put on your duvet cover.

    After all of that is done, you place the pillows in the correct place, put the duvet on the bed and tuck in the corners.
    Add some cushions onto the bed or teddys to make it look more welcoming if you wish. Or maybe even add a throw at the end of your bed.

    learn carpentry, get your tools and wood and make your bed; of course, if you want a sprung base, you will need to know engideering and how to make spring steel.

    Almost anything I do gives me story ideas to write about.  Cleaning -- and keeping schedules -- is one of those things thanks to my Mother who is MY MUSE. read more

    I have a good tip about changing a duvet cover. Turn the cover inside out, put your hands inside and hold the top corners, then grab the corners of the duvet and shake the cover down over it. It sounds harder than it is; it actually makes the job easier.
