I just added some eyelets along the length of the panel, and shortened one end to fit the opening of the lower bunk. I pre-drilled holes for some cup hooks over the opening and ta-daa! For the last touch I added one eyelet to the bottom corner so I'd have a little doorway to wake him up in the morning.

My happy little cave dweller grabbed a book and disappeared into his lair. Now when J returned from his trip he wondered why HE didn't have a cave of his own. A little trickier since there's no convenient wood strip to hang something from. Back to Target to find these:
Digging through my hardware bin in the garage I found my dependable drywall anchors:
I had to do a little reconstruction to the panels this go-round. I wanted them split over the ladder to make it easier to get in and out. Eyelets, of course, had to be added. Also, I had to shorten part of the back panel, so to keep the "new" stacked bookcase exposed, and his nightstand shelf accessible. As my patience are always in limited supply, I eyeball a lot of this stuff and things do not end up perfect. However, my happy cave inhabitants don't seem to mind at all!

Not the same, but when I saw the shelves at the end AND the bulletin board, I had to give myself snaps!
