But Chainsaws make such a MESS!
My cowboy said he'll take the last bunkbed out of the house and we can get one more queen sized bed.
I've been putting off asking until he was rested. I've been putting it off for SIX YEARS.
I've hesitated to ask not because of buying the new bed. It's taking out the old bunkbed. He's going to have to rip it apart because it won't fit through the door.
And, I know this because........when I bought it.....20 years ago....My Cowboy assembled it in our much larger dining room (there is no dining in this room, that is a poorly chosen term) right outside the bedroom then IT WOULDN'T FIT THROUGH THE DOOR AND HE HAD TO DIS-ASSEMBLE IT AND RE-ASSEMBLE IT IN THE BEDROOM.
There was.......(searching for the right word here) acute unhappiness involved in that moment.
He vowed if I ever wanted it out he'd take the thing out with a chain saw. Part of the reason I've hesitated to mention it to him, though our bunk bed days are long over.
Chainsaws make such a MESS.
I'm thinking of it as the Nebraska Chainsaw Massacre.
This bunk bed is just built like some sort of ... Hoover Dam project or something, all thick wood and bolts, no handy joints that snap together and apart.
Rock solid, though. So sturdy it'll probably survive (provided it avoids a confrontation with a chainsaw) like the Roman Colliseum.
If you look at the picture (and ignore the dust for heaven's sake) you can see the bolt holes. This is HEAVY construction.
And yet the bed was really cheap. Probably because when I bought it, I was looking at the floor model. Then they loaded a stack of two by fours and bolts into my pick-up.
Some assembly required!
Well, last night I finally asked for the bed to be banished. My Cowboy said he'd tackle the project. (although his true response was someone less perky sounding than this) He didn't mention his chainsaw and I didn't remind him but I sensed he remembered.
If anyone wants a bunk bed I've got one....free (some disassembly and re-assembly required)
But you've got to move fast. He'll probably get right on it. I suspect you've only got SIX YEARS to get the thing out of here.
In the meantime, if I knew where it was, I'd hide the chainsaw.
