Yesterday, Pete and I happened to drive by the furniture store that had the bunkbed he and Sara had picked out earlier in the year. He decided to stop in and see if it was on sale. The salesman told us that they just had two of the ones we wanted returned and they were marked down $400 so that they could get them out of the store. There was some minor damage to each one, but we went ahead and took advantage of the good opportunity. We didn't tell the girls about it, but chose to get it set up in their room and let them see it. The girls and I went to the grocery store and Target while Pete delivered and set up the bed. I let them each chose a new set of sheets at Target and said we'd save them for when they got bunkbeds. When we got home, we took them in their room and they were completely surprised. They excitedly played on and around their new bed until we made them get ready for bed.
Today Sophie and I will be putting clothes into the drawers and rearranging the other furniture in the room to maximize floor space.
These are pictures from when Sara and Pete when bed shopping a few months ago.
