My youngest son is a bed whore.
Drives me nuts, man. You can find him anywhere but his own bed; occasionally with his feet in Jamison's face, or half laying on top of Jace.
Oy. Now, in his defense, his little toddler bed was super small/uncomfortable. So what's a mom to do?
Get going on an awesome Ana White project, am I right? Right?? She's just amazing/fabulous, isn't she?
A few things I'd like you to know about this little undertaking:
1. It's called "The Simple Bed".
2. It wasn't "simple" for me.
3. This bed is listed at a $50-$100 cost range. I know the price is gonna go up in accordance with the quality of lumber. While I watched my cuts o' beef carefully, I ended up still coming in at $100. Shucks.
And here we are with my 60 cuts later:
(and un unmentionable amount of mistakes, too.)
I would simultaneously like to thank, express anger, and apologize, allatthesametime.
Jeff, thank you for helping me attach the frame to the head and footboards. It was definitely not just a one man job.
Jeff, I told you and told you that I knew I messed up and it was a hot mess. It's my first big furniture project-- and I asked you to be nice. Remember? It went like this:
"Please puhlease don't say anything about my screw ups. I know. I KNOW! Will you just help me and hold your tongue?
Seriously, if you say anything about my screw ups when I asked you not to, I will junkpunch you all up in the man business, and when you say 'WHY?' I'll say, 'YOU KNOW WHY!'"
Jeff, I'm sorry for threatening you.
(for the record, he only laughed.)
Ahem, now that that's out of the way. . .
This bed is sturdy, man. It dwarfs my other boy's beds and then some.
And they're all jealous of the "big" bed.
Hey hey hey! Don't look closely! That threat up there is universal, people!
Now if I could just figure out what to do about the discontinued matching comforter issue, we'd be all set.
