We ordered a new bunkbed Thursday evening and it came Friday afternoon!!! So I tackled moving the crib out of the kids room and into the empty spot in my master bedroom.

I had to take it halfway apart to get it through the doorways and the hallway, but here it is all re-situated :)...

The kids played nicely in the front room while mommy was in the back rooms tackling...

I even got to put the baby's bedding in. And we picked up a chocolate colored mobile from our local consignment store when we got the safety bed-rail for my toddler ;)...

Here is the spot I moved the crib from, all empty and ready for the bunkbed to arrive...

And here is me with all the bunkbed parts sorted on the floor, ready to go... wait - I should cook dinner first, not ignore it...

While the lasagna was in the oven my hubby took the kids swimming to give Mommy some tackle time with the new bunkbed...

After dinner I worked right into the kiddo's bedtime and finally got it all done...

The room had two bunkbeds in it. We originally planned to keep the brown one up because we bought mattresses for both top and bottom...

... but the mattresses were kinda ghetto! Anyone else have a flashback to their childhood?!!! Even without that though, they are WAY heavy, TOTALLY hard - like sleeping on wood, and when you move them you can hear the springs giggling around. And they are not a flat surface, they were rounded, weird, I couldn't sleep the night my son slept on his because I was just waiting for him to roll right off....

So I ended up taking the top bunk off the older bunkbed as part of my tackle as well We also got my son a better mattress (I would rather pay $100 for one good mattress than $100 for two ghetto ones :)...
