In case you've just joined our story like, today...
we are hoping to VERY STINKING SOON
bring home our new 5 kiddos.
They are wonderful, and cute and we miss them.
In the meantime...
we've got stuff to do!
My husband has been busy cutting up wood and stuff
and building things, like the laundry organizational wonderfulness he made back in January!
We were standing in the girls' "dormitory" a few weeks ago and had the
brilliant idea to build two beds into the dormers, therefore using up otherwise wasted space!
Who hates wasted space?! I sure do.
We found a decent queen size memory foam mattress
that we could cut in half -
which would be the perfect size for those spaces
and ordered them online with free shipping!
Then Paul got to work!
I'm just going to show pictures since my words would be all
"then he cut up some more wood,
and then he screwed stuff together, then he cut up more wood..."
so I will spare you my commentary.
|Note the bead board on the sides! He found out our |
H.Depot has a section of "culled wood" that they sell dirt cheap!
Found some good stuff!
|Genius. Minivan back door lift thingies.|
|My claim to fame - - I painted them white!|
|Open... for storing all their |
|The bed open and in place.|
|The beds inside the dormer space. |
We are putting bookshelves on either side to fill in the difference in space.
Aren't they GORGEOUS?!?
Okay... here's how they work on the awesome minivan door thingies:
So, there you have it! My wonderful hubby built TWO of these and after we pick up beds that are being given to us, and he modifies ones we have, we should be ready for sleeping by the dozen!
I love you, honey.
You did a GREAT job.
