Finally...the Bunks

Many of you have been asking for pictures of the bunks...they are a little late, but here they are.

You may wonder why at the age of 27 I am sleeping on a bunk bed, well let me just explain.

If you know me well, you know that the use of space and making things pleasing to the eye and mind is an obsession. Ask anyone who has ever lived with me how often I rearrange the furniture trying to figure out how to maximize the space. I'll admit it, I am obsessive compulsive when it comes to furniture placement, I hope that whoever I marry doesn't mind moving furniture, because it may happen often. So...moving into a relatively small room and sharing it with a roommate has been a challenge, not because of the roommate but because of my inability to accept the arrangement of our room, there was never a feng shui feel. It just wasn't working for me. So for $159.00 at Ikea I made the purchase of the week, or month, or even quite possibly year! And here they are in all their glory.

This is how they started...


Then I painted them...

Then I put them together (it wasn't as easy as it looks), and here they are.

Looks great! Maybe you should make a weekend trip up to boise and arrange our furniture in our new house!

They look great! I really like the black...it looks especially good with your bed spread! Do you have a picture with the entire room so I can see just how you re-arranged?
