We finally took the bunk beds out of Tim’s room. We bought them shortly after moving into this house for Andy & Nick, then Nick and Tim, then finally Tim alone. In recent years the top bunk served only as storage for dirty laundry and as a launching pad for leaps to the floor.
It also made an already dark room (north corner of the house) that much darker.
We went to Ikea and bought a loft bed to replace the bunks. Pics to come later when we get his desk and everything set up- but the room is much better for a 12 year old now!
I’m going to put the bunks up on Craig’s List, but if you or someone you know are interested, let me know! They’re from This End Up, in great shape, really sturdy, can be separated into twins.
