Searching we found this bed we <3. Previously We had a hand-me-down queen sized bed given to us by our in-laws. It was huge, and uncomfortable and not nearly as cute. Pottery Barn is wonderful to look at but until I win the lottery there's no way I'm spending $1700 on a bed for a 4 year old. This is where Ana white steps in we found a tutorial to build that very bed. We made a few small tweaks to make it our style, and allowed Daniel to play with his newest toy.
You start by making 2 boxes. We used MDF since it is going to be painted white, Instead of buying 1x12" which is hard to find and pricey
We trimmed it out with 1x2" (ripped down from 2x3") the cheapest options.
Time to assemble. Isn't my Puppy cute?
Then Clamped and screwed the head and foot board on.
Now we're working on one for Annalilia.
