farmhouse bed: day 1
Since our cramped days in our little ranch in Murfreesboro (circa 2006), Nick and I have wanted a storage bed to maximize space. We spent quite some time looking, but never could find something with the function and style we had in mind. Years later, and shortly after discovering Ana White, I stumbled upon her Farmhouse Storage Bed plan and it was exactly what I envisioned.
Now that I have a little woodworking experience under my belt and a beautiful new miter saw, it was finally time to tackle my dream bed. Nick went out to shop for lumber last weekend, and our project officially began on Sunday.
In just 2 1/2 hours the headboard was done, and we had even started a little work on the footboard. We were both a little surprised at how fast the project was moving, even with modifying for a warped board along the way.
The finished product is gorgeous, and our garage smelled amazing the next morning. If the children cooperate we should get several hours in this weekend, so stay tuned for farmhouse bed: day 2!
