Here’s a note from Todd: “Well, the gorgeous bedroom set made it to us all safe and sound. The two guys delivering it did a great job getting it here and the craftsman absolutely created perfection! We still need to decorate the room and get new bedding but it looks amazing. The pictures make the floors look really red but in person it is different and you can see some of the browns and grays come out of the wood. We are very very happy and it all started with your help… thank you again!”

Pre-planning made it easier for Todd to choose extra pieces with design elements that match the set. By ordering the bench and blanket chest at the same time as the bedroom set, Todd increased his volume discount.
