another big item on the summer to-do list was getting bunk beds for the children. we kept a look out on craigslist, and eventually found these not too far from home. i love thinking of the other children who slept in these beds, children now grown.
the new beds opened up quite a bit of floor space and created a tiny nook between the end of the beds and the built in bookshelves. it was just the right size for the vintage typing table. with a new stool and clip on light, it became Mabel’s new desk.
but there are two children who live in this room! Nicolas needed desk space too. we cleared off the bottom shelf, added another stool and just like that, Nico had a place to do what he calls his “clipboard work.”
