Prior to purchasing bunk beds for our girls, we were apprehensive about a few things. First, we had only one mattress instead of two. Then my SIL called asking if we wanted an extra mattress she had and we were thrilled to not have to buy one. So we bought the beds and the girls loved them. But we worried about them playing on the top bunk and possibly falling off and getting hurt. Other than one small accident, they’re doing really well. I’m glad we have them, because it saves so much space!
