I went off to work and gamps and his little helper/hindrance Arlo spent the morning together making the ‘big boy’ bed. When I say morning, it took the DIY duo three hours.
Reports from the set up were ‘…instructions were a bit ambiguous, but as everything is mirrored, just get one side right and then copy it‘.
There are ‘countersunk screws’ which gamps thinks should be ’round head’ to protect little fingers, and a few of the bolts were too short which did cause one side of the wood to be split as they were screwed in.
Gamps’ final verdict was: ‘overall not too difficult – one gramps and a two year old managed it alone‘.
