Cutting off the legs was the easy part! I actually did look at the "instructions," but there were not any, and I am not sure how much it would have helped, since it was already partially assembled, which may have made it more difficult. At first I assembled the outer frame, which would have been fine, had the bunk not been completely assembled. Everything fit together with bolts and glue-in dowels, so I would attach some part, then need to loosen the bolts, pry the sections apart, and then make the new one fit. There was some irony in purchasing a furniture because I needed space, yet hardly had the space necessary to put it together. Another person would have been a great help, too.

I have not been up there yet, though.

Now that I have room to work, I am going to organize my stuff. I did not throw away and recycle enough, but there are many things that I plan on donating. It is just nice to be able to walk around my room!

I am also posting other projects that I had: The kitchen floor, which still needs more work, the shower that I share, which is not finished either, and the refrigerator.

I would have renewed my World of Warcraft subscription over that, had I the time. It took hours!

I was scrubbing the door when I learned that black mold was trapped under the seal, which I needed to remove, and that was a nightmare.
