It's coming together...
Yesterday, we bought a new bed for our Daniel. The style is like the bed in the picture above, except it is stained cherry. We also got a chest of drawers- is that what other people call them? We always say "chest of drawers" here.
This was one of my big stressors of late: what will Daniel sleep on? A toddler bed? A single bed? Or should we get a double (since Mom or Dad are probably going to be lying down with him for a while!)?
Actually, we initially considered bunk beds. Then decided against them. Then, we almost bought a set of bunk beds yesterday. Anyways, we came around to deciding that a single/twin bed would be the wisest choice. In a more "masculine" colour. LOL!- there's not much masculine in this house filled with girls, barbie dolls and hair clips everywhere you look- but I have a feeling that will change.
We started shopping weeks ago for a bed. But the other half is pretty picky. No particle board. Real wood only. And not pine. (Me, I like pine.). Finally, we found a furniture store with the real deal in real hardwood for decent prices. Yep, 100% Canadian birch.
So, we'll have a bed. And a chest of drawers. Now all we need is to plaster the walls, paint, and put up the border. I know, I know... what can I say? We're a little bass ackwards. But at least I don't have to worry where he'll sleep now. (Of course, if he's like our daughters, he'll be in with us half the time anyways!)
