“I love Supernova beds.
I really love them,” says Joanne Lacey, a retired nurse and co-owner of the Lacey Group, a nursing home.
“But I don’t know if I can afford one.”
So Lacey is making her own.
The Lacey-based company, which has been providing bedding, bed linens and other bedwear to nursing homes and other facilities for more than a decade, has become a top seller for home decor stores.
Lacey also has a line of home decor accessories, including bookshelves, tables and a sofa.
She began her search for a Supernovae bed with an ad in the New York Times last summer, and she spent the next two months researching the topic.
She decided to make her bed from the floor because the original model was too heavy.
Lacy says she started with a 3-by-4-foot fabric mattress that she bought at Target for $40, but the size of the bed wasn’t large enough.
She went to Home Depot and bought a 9-by 12-inch fabric mattress for $50.
The fabric made the bed a little bit more comfortable, but it didn’t provide the warmth of a Super Nova, which is made from a solid piece of fabric.
She used a 3/4-inch-thick fabric sheet that was 6 feet by 3 feet and 6 inches wide.
She used the sheets to make two small slabs of foam to create the shape of the Supernova.
She cut them to length, glued them together and stuffed them into the mattress.
She filled in the gaps by using a piece of foam brush to paint a layer of foam on top.
She then added a little more of the foam, to give it that extra layer of insulation.
To create the Super Nova shape, she used a foam cutter.
It takes about two hours to make and requires no special tools.
The bed was finished on Dec. 21.
The bed has a high-tech design that incorporates two foam sheets, a fabric pillow, a sheet of foam and an additional foam pad.
The Super Nova design is similar to the one used by the late-night TV host John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, who both had beds made from fabric.
The company’s beds are a lot lighter than the ones typically used by nursing homes.
They are less than two pounds each, and the Supernacs are built to last for several years.
The sheets are made from 100 percent recycled materials.
The firm is also making bedding for home cooks and other professionals.
Lachlan says it is now selling the Supernovas in a limited number of sizes and styles for people who want to customize their beds for special occasions.
The Supernova brand is the second-most popular mattress brand in the United States, behind only Mattress Firm, according to the American Council on Science and Health.
