So, what are you doing?
The boys have decided they want to sleep in the same room, so I’m building beds.
Oh, I see. Wouldn’t it have been easier to buy them?
Umm, maybe, but I had this idea and I really like working with wood.
The contrasting white oak and walnut is a lovely, warm combination that she is finishing with wax.
Finished and in place, the beds look like they are coming right out of the newly installed white oak board wall. This was a very practical move because it didn’t take long to see that a painted wall behind the beds was going to take a beating from 3 energetic little boys.
It’s no surprise that the boys are up and down the ladder many times, including some when they are supposed to be sleeping!
In quieter moments, the beds double as a great play space.
I’d say these boys are pretty lucky to have a mom that is both creative and handy and can find a way to make many of their wishes come true. There may come a time when each wants his own space, but for now they are loving their shared room.
Hey, daughter, I wouldn’t mind if you built me a little table like this if there’s any more scrap lumber!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
