Grandpa Toby has been very generous to our girls! He bought them an entire new bedroom suite. The long-awaited shipment was delivered today. Here's the before photo from this morning of their little pink bedroom and the new twin mattresses:
The shipment arrived an hour earlier than I expected, which was good because I needed all the time that I had available today to assemble the beds. (Fortunately my back felt much improved today!) They're captains beds with 12 drawers each. Lots and lots of storage is very important for our tiny house! Here's part of the assembly process (5-drawer dressers in the background):
We also got a couple of matching chairs that may remain in the kitchen for a while:
Catherine jump-tested the bed for rebound and stability:
The beds are quite tall! Those siderails aren't going to keep them from ever falling off them, but maybe it won't happen too soon while they're asleep. We'll see.
Many many thanks to Grandpa Toby for his generosity!! Now I need to find a pair of cute kid's comforters for them. It won't take long for those shelves to get filled with part of the stuffed animal menagerie!
