THE BED IS FINISHED!   4 comments

One year later than we had hoped, but today we brought it upstairs and put it together, and it is amazing.  Storage, comfort, good looks.  And WAY cheaper than the Pottery Barn one that started us thinking in this direction. The plans are from Ana White, although we modified the trim to the beadboard, it is very much her plan. You can get plans from her website at
Our next project is a new headboard, of our own design.  It will be cool, and all the progress on it will be posted here, as you might imagine.

I can not wait to fill all these drawers!

  1. I don’t even know what to say. This is so amazing. You two are so amazing. This is stunningly, fabulously beautiful!

  2. This is VERY nice, A. Did you build the headboard too? I can’t see it for the pillows. I am glad to meet another woman woodworker. Melanie

    • The headboard is an old one she made back in the day when all her tools consisted of a handsaw and a cordless drill. It is too small for the new bed, and we are designing a much more elaborate one that matches the bed. Someday we will build it!
