Here’s a word to the wise. If you happen to have boys that share a bunk bed and that bunk happens to be up against a wall (which it probably should be), you will get two levels of dirty feet marks and bed toys scuff marks across that wall- one for each child.
Today’s task was to pack up the rest of the boys’ room. All of their stuff except for the clothes they will need to wear is now packed. With that done, I decided to pull out their bed from the wall and assess the damage. It was not pretty and I have no “before” shots. I do have some “half-way done” shots.

It seems to really showcase the dirt once you start scrubbing walls. We’re getting closer to making sure they are presentable though. You can’t see the wall as well in the second picture. It’s a lot better though. Tonight, I might convince Nathan to take the beds apart and just leave the mattresses on the floor. The boys think it’s a great idea.
