We Have Bunks--And That's No Bunk!

Does anybody remember waaay back in the earliest days of the old melodrama movies?  Me neither but the story of our bunk room at Doc Holiday might have made a good subject.  It might have gone something like this...

The bunk bed saga our last installment, Vicky arrived at the cottage with a U-Haul truck full of goodies to begin moving in.  But alas, there were no bunk beds in the bunk room.  (Fainting ensues.  Then panic.)

Our builder finally came to understand that children will be in need of those beds in a few days and, being a kind-hearted man and not a mustache-twirling villain, he arranged for one of his best carpenters to come over the weekend and build the bunk beds.

Enter our hero and heroine to the rescue...Jane Coslick, my designer, and John Lindsay!  I found some photos of beds that we wanted to model ours after for John to see then...

They measured.

And they measured.

 And just to be sure, measured again!

John set to work and by the end of the day---Bunk beds!  My hero! (Sigh)

There was no time to paint the beds before the kids showed up but they didn't mind.  And they loved their room!  (Swoon)

 After our week with the family, we took off all the bedding and the beds were painted.  I'll show you how the room looks now when we meet again in our final installment of the 
Saga of the Bunk Beds!
