Check this out!

I've been waiting to post this for a long time.

First, let me start off by saying I have an amazing husband.

An amazing husband who has a thing for Volkswagons.  Especially the Bus.  And not just any bus- it has to be a 21-window with a split front window and a roof rack.  Such as this:

He also has  a thing for building and woodworking.

This is what he made for our kids' room:
We wanted a set of bunkbeds for this room, but not just any bunkbeds.  These are built into the whole length of the wall.

John drew up the plans and set to work.  He bent the pipes for the roof-rack by hand and cut the sides out of sheets of MDF.  The little windows on top are actually mirrors we had laying around.

  The center hub is a lid from his favourite pasta sauce.  The wheels are cut from MDF as well.

I found the steering wheel at Value Village.  Now the kids can drive their bus to anywhere!  I think it's even been to the moon.  I know it's been camping.

After searching high and low for VW drawer-pulls, we settled on these from Home Depot.  I thought they went well with the curves of the bus:)
Sorry for the lighting of the pictures, I'm still a novice at taking them.
Enjoy!  And thanks for looking.
