Who's Bright Idea?

I wanted metal frames with upholstered head boards... yet here we are with the paint brush. I was out voted 3-1 for bunk beds. So yesterday I found an amazing deal on craigslist and here I am with the primer (I agree Rebecca... not so fun to primer). But one day, I'll finish and actually put these in the girls room and they will be so cute!



Of course once I realized how not fun it is to primer, I had to start another project looking for some of these! I ended up getting them from my friend for free!! Thanks Liz! I think I might just put them up as is... when I finish painting the wall :)




And what's a normal morning in the Pollock home without a reptile? I mean it's been at least a few weeks since I "accidentally" let the horny toad free. Last night as I was visiting with Justin (we talk while he's on the road) he abruptly says, "OH, there's a gecko. Gotta go!" When he called back later I had to know, where do you stash a gecko in a patrol car? In your lunch box of course. My husband never ceases to amaze me:)



The girls LOVE the reptiles! He's really soft too. Didn't think geckos felt silky smooth.

Are you gonna use the shutters like I said? Get some alligators clips (I'll send you some photos) and you're in business. That's so funny about the reptile - Roger caught a gecko yesterday, one of the millions around here(bright green) but then it began to change color. HMMM...I said I should get a photo cuz Kennedy would love to see it. Good luck with the bunk beds. Distress them ahead of time so when the paint gets worn off nobody will notice...

Be sure to post the finished work. I'm excited to see it!

Did that gecko come with a better deal on car insurance?
