Quoting sassy chef:" Anyone have a loft bed for their kid? The bedrooms in this new townhouse are a tad small (living space ... [snip!] ... than what we have now, I can't complain.) but I'm thinking of perhaps getting the kids loft beds...K for sure, M eventually. "


Not yet, but I"m bugging DH to start building one. lol. Ive seen the ones that are castle shaped, where the pillars are cabinets to hang stuff, and the steps leading to the upper part are drawers, and space under for desk/toys etc. I WANT!

Same here. I'm thinking I may ask my BIL about building them for us...we'd pay, of course. That way I'd know it was great quality, and it would be cheaper than the ones online. I wonder if he'd be up for it..I want thicker stairs than just a ladder, but I really think they'd be a great investment for the kids.

On top of the supplies, what do you guys think would be fair to offer to pay? I mean, they are online for like 300-1k, that's a huge difference.

Quoting Blythe.:" That burns my skin. The sally hansen wax strips are really easy."

I've never tried waxing at home. I'm always afraid I'll mess myself up but with my stache, I don't see what could go wrong.



Do you have to cut them to size or are the strips pretty small?

Depending on how elaborate it is, I'd say between 350-450.

Quoting sassy chef:" Yea. I guess I should ask if he even has the time first :lol: No way DH could build it, I don't even trust him to assemble furniture. "

LMAO. Mine wants to build EVERYTHING and fix EVERYTHING himself. He can do it.... he always does everything great... he just takes FOREVER to do it. lol

Nope, I get this kit. It has all different sizes.

Not Chris, he's awful at stuff like this.



My BIL lost his job recently, and could use some extra cash. We couldn't do it ASAP, we're not even moving until June, but maybe he'd consider it.
