Tackle It Tuesday: Putting in Bunk Beds!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


Wow, I guess I didn't post all week, because here it is Tackle it Tuesday again already! lol


This week our "tackle" was getting the boys' beds out, and putting in bunk beds! A friend of mine from the local moms group told me her mom was getting rid of some bunk beds that her little brother had had, and she gave them to us! (Thank you Kathleen!!!!)

Bunk beds just make so much sense for their room because it is small and they share a room, and floor space is severely lacking as it is. And the boys LOVE having bunk beds!

This was "before" with the 2 beds in there. (Minus the comforters, they had animal print comforter that I had already thrown in the wash before I took the pic)...



Then under both beds was a TON of stuff! Ugh! Toys and junk everywhere that the boys and I cleaned up before the bunk beds could go in...





Now the "after" with the bunk beds! I still need to get some new sheets and comforters for them though, so this isn't really the finished product. We are turning the room into dinosaur theme now. (It was a jungle theme).



The boys LOVE their new bunk beds!!!...

How did you decide who gets the top (i assume age). My girls would be fighting like mad.

Wow- that really opened the room up!! Looks great.

Stop by and check out my first Tackle It Tuesday.

LOL we didn't ask them or give them a chance to fight over it, we just TOLD them that the older one got the top. I'm too nervous for the little one to sleep up that high yet, he's only 3. I let him up there for a little bit, but when it's time to go to bed he's on the bottom.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Wow looks great!! The boys obviously love them & it's great that you got them free (or at least very cheap). Well done!

What a great change! They'll have so much more room to play now, and the bunkbed is so cute. Hope we'll get to see the new bedding when you get it. Great job, Mom!

Thanks for stopping by! I've been sewing away, but decided to take a break for a bit. ;o)

Which reminds me I have to tackle my boys' new bunk bed as well. We just bought it and have not been using it yet.
BTW, I'm inviting you over to my new blog. I have a Mom Blog Directory and fun contests and forums to join. Thanks! :)

Those look great. I always insisted on the bottom bunk because I thought I was going to get hit in the head by the ceiling fan for sure. My dad eventually took the ceiling fan out because my paranoia spread to my parents. :-)
