Moving on up.

March 3, 2010

I've been busy this week which is why I have been a little scarce. With Molly moving into Lily's room in the next few months I am gradually preparing. This week we've been going to IKEA and buying bunkbeds and shelving.

Molly loves tents. Unfortunately there is no room for an extra tent. As usual I like to try to have my cake and eat it to. So I've been buying material for this (see pic to left).

The tent alone costs $200. The bed and the tent costs over $1000. But I think I can recreate this look and make it better in some ways.

I'll show you the final look when I'm finished. Wish me luck.

For MUCH less monies, a slide bed-

This is what we got our son. There are a couple different colors and styles, I got the one with the smaller tent set up, and it was only like 200 bucks for the bed, tent included.

This is an awesome bed/fort! I'm sure you can make it even cooler! Can't wait to see the finished product. I may have to try one myself when my boys are old enough to do bunks... they share a room.

Ooh fun! Our friend has that bed for their toddler and it has a slide on one end. She just hates changing the sheets though! I keep getting an old winners page when I click on the link...am I not looking in the right spot?

We'd like to have a second kid one day but only have a 2BR house. I would really love to hear more about your room sharing experiences (including ages of the kids).

And I'm super excited with what you come up with for the tent! I saw a cute one on ohdeedoh the other day that was a little playhouse.

I watch this blog: http://knockoffwood.blogspot.com/ and she creates patterns for, well, knock offs of the real deal. You might check out her woodworking patterns to make the bed/frame.
