The Bunk Beds Are [Almost] Finished! April 20, 2012

Filed under: Projects — kohlhardfacts @ 3:08 am

Caleb finally finished constructing the bunk beds!

[Note the use of constructing there…They’re still not completedHopefully we will be painting them this coming Saturday.  But seeing as it took seven months to finish building them, this may be a lofty goal.  Also, they are a bit too tall and the bottom frame is larger than the mattress.  Minor details.]

Have I mentioned how amazing my hubby is?!  He made these bunk beds.  All by himself.  From a big pile of wood.  Yea, he’s pretty impressive!

See the pretty details on the support beams?

And the head and foot boards.

He also wants to wood burn the girls’ names into the posts.

Also, how stinking cute are my girls?!

I love having a handy man hubby.  He’s great at making things and fixing things, and just generally taking care of household issues.

I am also seriously thankful that my Dad [and now my husband] saw fit to make sure that I am also competent at taking care of minor household issues.  Things like plunging a toilet, flipping a breaker, hanging a picture, and changing a light bulb.  No joke, these are calls Caleb has gotten since working maintenance at an apartment complex.  One major thing I’ve learned from this is that we will definitely teach our girls basic fix it know how.  Things like what’s the difference between a flat head screw driver and a phillip’s head screw driver.  How to use an allen wrench.  The many uses of WD40 and duct tape.  And of course, how to paint the walls – including cutting in the edges.  Well, maybe Uncle Adam and Uncle Jeremy can teach them that.

What should I add to my list?  What are some things you think are important to teach your children?
