On Thursday, I went to get new garments and work out clothes. It helped me realize that I need to get rid of a lot of t shirts that I have, since they are too big and I don't need 12 shirts to sleep in. Putting away the new stuff was hard because our dresser is just awesome and yeah you know that already. I was thinking maybe I could start storing things underneath my bed in clear boxes and then it hit me - we should get a bed with drawers in it!!
Jake agreed that storing stuff under the bed would be an awesome idea so I text Kyle Brooks, one of our really good friends that is awesome at wood working stuff. I asked him if he could build one for us and he started asking about what we wanted right away - one with 3 or 4 drawers, that is black, that the bed sits on so it is raised off the floor but Max won't be able to get under the bed either. After a few questions, Kyle sent me a picture from Ikea of exactly what we wanted, on sale. For cheaper than he could build it, and we wouldn't have to wait months to get it!! I was SO excited!! Jake went to get it the yesterday while I was at work, and when I got home we put it together. Well I started helping, and then Kyle & his wife Calli came over and Kyle took over so I didn't have to help anymore! A few hours and 2 Little Caesar's pizzas later I have a new bed!!!
|Notice how lifted it is compared to the nightstands - it is SUPER high! Max can't get up by himself yet!|
