We added a new member to our family on May 6th ! Welcome our new Dachshund puppy, Milah ! She's 7 weeks of perfection.
Our 10 month old English Bulldog, Chunk is adjusting well. 

Here's the final photo of my dear daughter's bed. All sanded, stained, and beautified.
She HAD to have one of those mosquito net canopies over her bed. I had two problems with this. 

1. I couldn't find one at the store I chose that day.
2. I don't like them. 

So, I improvised. I found two sheer striped panels for $7 each. Then, I found a teeny tiny towel rack for $3. Woo.. Love it.

I also added a small white pillow that I had as a young girl. She loved this added touch. It was also a nice spot for the Tooth Fairy to leave some Moolah the following night. :))

(I must add I hate that the a/c vent is right in the middle of this gorgeous-o creation. I may have to do some adjusting. But for right now, it suits just fine.)

My LURVELY cousin's little boys had outgrown these
bunk beds. There are immaculately made and solid.
The type of furniture you just can't buy anymore. :(
I snatched them up. Quick.
They sat in our spare living room for a while. Umm. 3 weeks exactly.
I have an excuse ! It's been raining it's little heart out almost
since we moved into this place. Boo-yah !
Well, the rain broke today long enough for dear Fiance and I
to put in WERK ! He sanded and I stained. Red Mohogany
finish again. I'm in like with this stain. We have a love-hate
relationship because I can't get out of a project
without having it all over me. 

Before stain.

After Red  Mogogany stain.

 Done !

My favorite thing about this bed is where
I can see my little cousins had played Tic Tac Toe.
I made sure not to cover it.

THEN the rain came. I had to carry these
bad Mamma Jamma's inside. BY MYSELF
b/c dear Fiance took the boys to play
basketball. That was fun. For me.

And back in the living room they rest. With it's 
twin nearby.. :)
