New Beds!

I have been searching and waiting for a good deal on a used set of bunk beds for the girls. My searching finally paid off last weekend when I found this cute set for $50 on KSL.com. Justin gave me grief about how much time I spent looking for them, but I knew what I wanted and knew that I wouldn't have much time. I missed one set of older and not as good beds because I didn't call until the ad had been on KSL for 15 minutes! Well, I am glad those didn't work out, because these are much nicer! I called Friday night, after the ad had been on for only 28 minutes. I kind of thought they would already be gone because of my previous excperience, but I was the first caller! I was so excited I was giddy! Justin kept laughing at me, but I was so proud of my perserverence. So, enjoy the pictures and know that I am very proud of my $50 find! Next step...making matching comforters.


Justin putting the bed together. We actually had to meet up with the seller because she forgot half of the bolts, but it all turned out okay.

The girls in front of their new beds! They were so excited that I think it took them about 2 hours to finally settle down Saturday night and fall asleep.

The girls on their own beds. Marianne loves that hers it the top one and that she gets to climb a ladder to get into bed. Alli loves to climb the ladder and play on sister's bed, but she loves to sleep on the bottom.

Allison climbing the ladder to play on Marianne's bed.

I know it's sideways, maybe Justin can fix it. I thought this was a cute picture of Marianne climbing the ladder with Alli swinging like a monkey next to her. Just WAY to much fun!

Way to go! They are so cute! Did you see the set we made for our girls? It cost way more than 50$, but I'm pretty proud of them as well. Check em out when you get the chance.

OH, that brings back memories of when Holly and Ashley got bunk beds. Later, Ash and Steph had them.

They are so cute with their bunk beds. I can't believe that I haven't seen your Marianne since she was a baby! Sorry that we live so far away!

joann, if that last comment is from something or someone you don't know... you should consider putting one of those things on your blog that makes people type out strange letters... it should take care of you getting 'comments' from strange internet sites.
anyhow... good luck.

Thanks Leslie. That is the second time we have had someone leave a link that opens up a can of worms. Thanks for the pointer!
