Bed Bugs

Know what really bugs me? And I mean really REALLY bugs me? The children. Also how they jump on beds and break them.

We want to buy a new bed because, DUH, its broken, and we want to buy the same bed we bought for Rainbow man last year. Can we find it anymore? Nooooo! Of course not.

I want a bed with a solid bottom, in hopes that it lasts a long while, and All we can find are "slat" beds. Jitteryjoe wants to get this bunk bed that isn't a bunk bed, its just a bed up on stilts. Uhm, HELLO? no!

so we are on the hunt for a bed for Blue Boy.

It's NOT going well!

Know any online stores that sell beds? Maybe I can find one online...

The Stubborn Norwegian Bunk Bed Maker makes custom beds that are very sturdy. http://www.stubborn-norwegian.com

The "solid bottom" can be achieved by using extra slats with no spaces between them. That is exactly what
I did with my loft bed, (bed on stilts) and it is super sturdy. From the site:
"The testing grounds of my sons' bedrooms has shown me why lag screws don't work and why triangular shapes are used in structures like bridges, airplane wings, and endless other applications where stress requires extra support beyond the square box approach."

Discloure:
Being in the furniture biz for twenty years I liked the designs so much
I became a partner. And I am not even Norwegian.
I hope this helps and good luck with your bed search.

I think it would be quite difficult to buy one online. But if you do, let me know.
