Happy Palm Sunday to all!
Everyone is pooped! Today, we attacked the kids rooms and did some big time rearranging!
The boys were set up until now, with loft beds and underneath had a dresser and a desk each. They are just getting too big for that. Heads are being hit all the time and what not. It was time for a change.
(Also, it was impossible for me or the boys to manage changing bed linens; only hubby had arms long enough!)
Their beds were wholly complete solid oak beds with railings. They are now down and next to each other with a big cube box style table for a nightstand in between.
Hammer kept his rails on, and Fuzzy took them off. Whatever makes them happy. The rest of the furniture was rearranged around the room. Eventually, one of the desks will be used at the computer station in the basement room that Hubby is refinishing.
The boys are happy though. Hammer told me, 'Mom, I was a little bit worried about this whole change thing, but I am surprised how great it is, and I really like it, thank you!' Words to make a mom smile.
As you can guess, with Hubby sick, the basement project has been on hold. Hopefully, in another week or two. I think Hubby did too much today!!!
Of course, Pumpkin got into the act, too. She has been begging for a different bed. She was too young to make a choice when we bought all the furniture in 2000, she was only 3 years old.
Hubby and I got her a captain style bed, thinking she would love being elevated and having the drawers underneath. At first, she did.
However, she hates it now, and has since about 7 years old. Ugh.
So, Hubby realized that the frames that held the boys beds in the air as loft beds could be utilized as a headboard, foot board and frame for Pumpkin to have a traditional style bed.
Go figure. So, he had to redrill only 2 holes in the oak, and then reassembled it all, and took apart her captain style bed and frame.
All remaining pieces moved to storage in the basement and massive amounts of sorting and clean-up done in both rooms. My mom helped Pumpkin and taught her how to now make a bed each day in the traditional way. Thanks, Mom!!
Pumpkin is now in love with her room and has been reading up there for quite a while... alone!!! That has NEVER happened!!! Yay! Even Fuzzy was relaxing on his bed (sans linens) and reading for a bit. Very nice.
I am very happy, albeit, pooped!
The boys linens are still washing and drying... they are next to learn how to make a bed from scratch!!! LOL And, they have new quilts that Grandma and Grandpa got as a steal last year in Wildwood for bed spreads! Yay!
Dad is making homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner and we got some homemade bread (from the market, lol) for us to have with it.
I think everyone will sleep well tonight in their new and improved, rearranged bedrooms!!!
