Yep! that's right folks. JP and EJ have brand new, never been used by anyone else, beds. Grandpa, built the twin with a trundle for only $115 worth of materials. He built the bed in only one day. Day two was dry time for the wood stain.
After some window shopping, I realized we could not have purchased beds for any less -even when looking at used furniture. The old beds, a bunk bed and a loft bed, that were in the boys room were close to 30 years old and in REALLY, REALLY bad shape. Both were so old that anytime one of the boys crawled into bed, or even turned over while sleeping, the beds would sway considerably. We called it "air surfing". Now, they have a VERY sturdy twin with a trundle. Since AB, BT and JP are adults and home only for visits (currently, JP plans to come home more often than his brothers, thus a bed for him), a twin with a trundle are all we really need.
EJ absolutely LOVES his new bed and JP is excited about sleeping on his when he comes home on leave. Thank you, Grandpa - The new beds are WONDERFUL!
