I fell in love with this image of bunk beds from pinterest...
So a couple days after Christmas my husband and I decided to try it out.
I'll take you through our 3 days of construction with these impressive iphone pictures.
I know, great quality right? Anyways, here's the after.
The kids have the perfect place behind the stairs to hide. It's not huge, so it makes for an interesting family sardines game. I still have to put up some trim to cover up where the bead board meets but other than that, it's all done. The two hinged boards on the bottom come up and we can pull out two trundle beds. So that makes a total of SIX twin beds in here.
I bought the light fixtures from Home Depot for $12.00 a piece. I drilled holes in the bottom and wired them to a lamp cord. The kids love it and have already figured out how to hang barbies from the fan. And I love it because when my sisters come to visit, we can chuck all 9 kids in there and watch a movie in peace.
