The Boys’ New Bunk Bed

The boys were so excited to hear that we were finally going shopping for a bunk bed earlier this week. They have been waiting a long time. We went to every furniture store in our town, but were unimpressed with the prices and the low quality. Terry said, “I can build them a bunk bed. I’ll just use the measurements of Leslie and Laci’s bed.”

And that’s just what he did! He bought the boards, cut them to size, painted them blue (Mitch picked the color), and assembled it in about two days!


He had a good helper in Mitch, who really loved using the power drill! 🙂


And he held things.

A lot.


Here they are, climbing up on their new bed!


We took Matthew to pick out his own comforter today. He wasn’t too excited about the change at first, so the Buzz Lightyear bedding helped. This bed is much sturdier than the ones in the store, and looks just as nice! Terry saved us around $400, too! (I’m so blessed with a handy husband!)


Matt looks like a big boy now. *sigh*


But he’s not too big for my lap yet. 🙂

With love,

  1. I am so impressed! Terry did a terrific job on the beds; they look very nice. He also did the building so quickly! Mitchell received some good skills training in the process, too. The boys look so cute on their new furnishings. Did you (or the boys) want bunk beds to free up more floor space?


  2. Wow! Great job! Matthew does look like a big boy now! Matti still sleeps in her crib, but has started climbing out and coming to find me in the mornings instead of waiting for me to come get her. Kind of bittersweet how fast they grow up!


  3. I am showing this to my son, I think he should make these for his boys. I cannot believe your kids are so grown up. They are always smiling though, love that.
