The girls got a change of scenery this week. For about a year now, Skyeler had been wanting to give the bunk bed to Aly. This was a big switch so we had Aly sleep in the bunk in Skye's room a couple of nights to make sure she would like it. She did and Dan agreed to take the bed apart and do the switch-a-roo.
Before the switch could be made, Aly's room needed a clean sweep! Man was it a mess! I did take before pictures so you could see the transformation, however, she begged me not to post them on the blog. You can use your imagination and envision an unmade bed, a floor that has disappeared under dirty laundry, and piles of junk stacked in every possible spot that wasn't covered by dirty laundry. Sadly, I'm not exaggerating. After moving almost everything out of Aly's room, we were able to get a good look at what she had, what she didn't need, and what she was going to put back in the room.
Moving the bed turned out to be the easiest part of the whole thing. Putting everything back was another story! It took all of the next day to get it put back together. Skyeler is still not quite done because she lost more storage than she expected. The loft part of the bunk had a desk, three shelves, and drawers. She made need a couple more shelves for her room to complete it.
So here are the "after" pictures. I have to say, both of the girls are excited about the change :)
I only took one picture of Skye's room because it's not quite ready yet. One of the reasons she wanted to change beds was the hope that her cat would want to come and sleep with her. As you can see, he already made himself comfortable on her new bed :)
