Bunk Beds!

We switched the girls over to bunk beds yesterday. I needed to have the bed Emily was using to turn back into a crib for Andrew, plus Sarah wasn't going to fit in the toddler bed much longer. We found this bunk bed on Craigslist including the mattresses (inner spring ones, too!) for a really good price. They needed to be re-glued and the wood was beat up and written on, so they got a coat of white paint, too.

It isn't a very big set of bunk beds, but the room is small and the ceilings low, so they fit in the room well.

It didn't come with a ladder, so for now, Sarah has to climb over the end.

Emily all snuggled in on the bottom bunk. (She would probably do okay without a rail, but she's never slept in a bed all night without one yet)

We also got 2 bookshelves from Menards for the girls' books and toys. I'm going to make new curtains, too, but hadn't gotten them done, yet.

Fun! We're in the process of searching out bunkbeds for our girls. Naomi is getting kind of big for her toddler bed...

It's funny how our families seem to be doing parallel things...

* We bought a larger vehicle at auction, you bought a larger vehicle at auction.

* We bought a bench for ours at a junkyard, you bought a bench for yours at a junkyard.

* You bought bunkbeds for your girls at the same time we're looking for bunkbeds for our girls.

It's kinda fun! Looks like the girls are feeling like big girls in their new beds! :)
