Adventures in bed making... part 1

After weeks of planning there is finally an end in sight. What started out as a birthday wish is now starting to look like one cool loft bed!

Let me take you through our journey over the last several weeks...

First there was a plan...

Then there is a man and his saw...

There is also a little boy who will not be left out of all the fun...

and does quite well on his own...

Sparks flew...

and one bed was attached to the wall...

On a side note: This is the mirror that I won at a school auction. It has all the faces and names of Justin's kindergarten class. Anthony thinks that I should take it down. Me... well the fact that it is so darn cute coupled with the $500.00 price tag(whole other story) kinda makes me feel as if we need to keep it around a few more years.

Okay, back to the bed... it grew a leg for support.

another view for the heck of it...

and some stairs...

Now all I need to do is put a 2nd coat of paint on the bed, paint the stairs, paint the rails and figure out what I am going to do with all his crap! (Before his friends party on Sunday!)

Now the comedy part of the adventures in bed making... throughout this whole adventure my hubby and I have taken part in some interesting conversation. Okay, so it was more like random comments he made and the thoughts in my head right after...

-"this plan is well thought out" (yeah, that's what scares me)

-"you don't wanna come out here and blow me off do ya" (um~ get your mind out of the gutter... he was full of saw dust)

-"your gonna make me blow shit out my nose" (actually I would like to see you do that)

-"I've got it all under control... trust me" (oh boy, that usually means trouble!)

-"I've got ideas for that" (so how much is it going to cost me?)

-"here, I've got 2 double tall boys for ya" (well that was rude)

-"are the chemicals in your hair messing you all up?" (he caught me off guard with that one... I was speechless)

-"your the best" (duh! That's what I've been trying to tell you)

and last but not least...

-"I just broke the stairs... I'm gonna need some stronger wood" (chuckle)

It's been fun! Justin is extremely excited and the bed looks great. I will post more pics after I get the painting done.

Happy Thursday!!!

How excited is Justin?!! I hope all his friends don't jump on it Sunday and break it! (Don't worry, that would totally happen only to me. :)

I'm impressed with your man Lora. That is a big project with an important deadline.

I'm excited to see the finished product! It's like every little boy's dream!
