I want to re-decorate Diva’s room … just a little bit.
Here’s my problem, currently Diva has a bunk bed with a futon on the bottom, similar to this one.
Her bed is usually in the open position and she sleeps on the bottom bunk/futon. The top bunk is covered with her “stuff”; clean clothes that should be put away, dirty clothes that should be in the laundry … you get the idea. Along with the cluttered top bunk Diva tends to hang things off the corner posts, like her towel or purses.
It is a thorn in my side.
This bunk bed actually separates into two beds. We have tried this option before where I put the futon in the living room and leave the single bed in her room.
To quote my child “It’s not working, I need a lot of room to sleep”. So the futon was put back in her room.
And the clutter returned. 😦
This brings me to Ikea.
A few years ago, I was in Ikea and saw this beauty.
But its $500 price tag quickly shot down any thought I had of taking it home.
Next there was this one.
At $50 cheaper than the brown version it too was a no go.
Which brings me to the latest one to catch my eye.
At $300, this is still a bit to expensive for me BUT Ikea is have a midnight madness sale tonight and at one of the locations “near-ish” to me this bed will be $99.
I am very tempted.
UPDATE: Diva decided that although she likes the bed, the money would be better spent elsewhere, so we didn’t venture out for it.
