Miss Mabel and Ester share a bedroom.
Miss Ester has a school desk by her bed.
There was no room for one by Miss Mabel's.
So....after perusing Pinterest, David and Mabel decided to assemble a really cool loft bed for her.
Let the building begin.
Then he double checked them all before they cut the pieces and assembled.
Don't ask me about measurements, because the project went seriously fast! I took Miss Clementine to ballet and when I came home I found this...
The frame was secured on three corners with super securing screws (I hope) and a braided, nylon rope anchored to the ceiling running to the fourth corner.
I do know the bed has to be 30" below the ceiling. (That wall is 8' but the ceilings angle up to 10')
I was like, holy crap! That's really fast progress in 75 minutes!
After a lunch break, they installed the ladder and rail.
It was ready to be slept in.
A few days later, I drove Miss Mabel over to IKEA (I love that store!) to pick out a new desk and chair.
She and I assembled it without Big D's help!
The finished product...
Mabel's twin bed is on the left in the picture below. Ester's is on the right.
School just became a little more exciting for this child who is growing up a little too quickly ;)
