What? Another picture?

Because I know EVERYONE is simply sitting on the edge of their seat, waiting to see what sort of steps my dh built, I offer you installment #3 in the continuing bunk bed saga:



As you can see, he went for the steps.

I was pushing for the plain ladder option, simply because here at Dinkytown Estates, space is at an absolute premium. [Suburban Cowgirl had that in mind when she chose the "steps with storage" option, so I give her credit for her guess].

I must state for the record that dh was more than willing to do a plain ladder for me, but since I saw he had his heart set on making the steps, I bowed out of the decision and told him to have a blast -- which he did.

The next phase is the trundle bed, which he'll be making sometime in the next week or so.

I'll try to refrain from any more bunk bed pictures... at least until I paint the beds!

Ask him if he cares to make a trip up to Indiana ;-) We could use some stuff around here!

Actually, we still have family up there... so you never know! ;-)

God bless him... he's working so hard to make this house work for us!

Come on up! You can visit OLMC again ;-) It's better than ever.

I love the steps! I've never seen anything like that before. Fabulous!

Well, I told him he was right and I was wrong. I was dead set against the steps, but he had his heart set on them. I was worried that they would stick out way too much, but he managed to make it work.

I need to trust him more on these things!

Oh, dear, I hope my girls don't see this picture. They'll want those stairs really, really bad!!! LOL

See? Hands down, EVERYONE has voted for the stairs.

Major amounts of humble pie here. I've told my husband the reactions so far, and he has been (graciously!) pleased.
