When our family went on vacation this summer to the north Georgia mountains we did a whole of this:
|It's hard to see but it's a whole lotta nothin!|
We did a little of this too.
Since we had driven into Atlanta to go to the Braves we decided to go to IKEA and look around. While we there we found a bed for Sarah. I've been struggling a little with what kind of bed to get her. I am pretty sure that she is still in a crib and going from a hard crib to a big fluffy bed just might be too much for her. Then we came across a cute little bed. It was low to the floor, would expand from a toddler size to twin and seemed to be perfect. YEA! We got it and a mattress.
We had not exactly packed expecting to bring home a bed so it took a little finagling to get home.

What you can't see is Shane filling the cooler with ice.
|We slid the cooler back in-good to go!|
We waited several months until the room was cleared out and painted to put the bed together and we were all excited to get this room looking like a room!
Shane carefully laid out the pieces.
He started putting it together.
Wait a minute..... where are the slats!!! They forgot to put the slates in the box. I indignantly got out the computer to find out what was going on. I pull up IKEA. I look up the bed and there it is.....
*Slats are included in the prices but come packaged separately. Don't forget to get them also.

Thankfully I was headed to Houston for a conference in a few weeks and could get some. But for awhile sweet Sarah's bed looked like this!
|Forgive the fabric- time to sew!|
The mattress is up of the floor and the bed has a sheet! Now to get the bedding done!
