This is my first attempt at woodworking (I mean using the saws and everything). My husband was the teacher extraordinaire. He stood by and told be what to do for each step. He helped some too. This is the simplest bed ever. We just used a 4 inch post- cut it to the height we wanted and ran a board between the posts. As you can see we used a basic bed frame to hold it all together.
I debated about making the new bed higher so that it could be a "hide out"- and sure enough, about the first thing my 5 yr. old son said was, "why didn't you make it higher so I could play under there?" Live and learn.
5/12/10 - I forgot to mention that I am thinking about adding a wall mounted headboard- another simple project!
