Building a Bed - the Final Reveal
It's official. I built a bed from scratch....and it only took me about three years. You think I'm joking, but I'm not. I took me forever. In fact, the partially finished bed was in the garage for so long that Emmie thought it was scrap wood and drew on it.
But today we are celebrating a project completed.
I made a few last minute modifications because I was ready to be done. You might call them 'shortcuts'. But for the sake of being kind to a gal who is ready to be done with a big project, let's call it a modification.
I won't be sharing any tutorials on this bed. I used Ana White's pattern, which was great. She's far more handy than I am. And for me to try and regurgitate what I did would be nearly impossible. So for more info, please visit ana-white.com.
And here it is….the bed!
Dan was off yesterday so he was my handy helper while I put it together.
It was a touch awkward assembling the bed...
But this was probably the fastest part of the entire job!
Below you can catch a peek at my modification. I was going to add big white side rails on the bed. They were painted and ready to go. But after attaching them to the frame/supports, I would have had to putty the holes and touch it up, which was something I did not want to do.
I was so ready to be done that I just decided to go with the bed skirt to cover the unfinished rails.
So here it is one more time….the finished bed….finally.
