Third Trimester Build

I am super fantastic excited about the progress we’ve made this week!!

We are still trudging along in The Big Purge, but now that our bedroom is cleared I couldn’t ignore a glaring problem any longer.

Before:

Metal Bed Frame (Faulty)1This is the corner of our metal bed frame. It is very¬†sharp and very pointy. It is not safe for our Littles to run around… hence the towel covering. Continue reading

Simplify Week 4 (That Put Off Project)

Doing project simplify has been a blast. I’m so glad I joined… but I’m also glad this is the last week. I am exhausted and limping to the finish line.

I started this project early because I knew how time consuming it would be… I also didn’t get to finish because we have had some serious rain come through here and I really need sunny days to build… Even though it’s not finished, I’m pretty excited with what we’ve done so far. :-)

My daughter has mentioned several times that there isn’t a bed in her “bed-room”. She has asked when she will have her own bed (She had a toddler bed in our room, but I’m guessing she wanted a bigger one. ;-) I love the look of Potery Barn, but I’m way too cheap to pay Pottery Barn prices… thanks to Anna White I don’t have to. If you’ve never heard of her, you should check out her site. She creates tons of free build plans for Pottery Barn(ish) furniture. All the plans are easy to follow and take relatively low skill to build.

I wanted something very low to the ground that the Littles wouldn’t be scared of falling off of. I also didn’t want mystery toys to be stuffed underneath. As far as that goes this bed is a win win.

My inspiration came from Shanty 2 Chic’s build of the Pottery Barn Fillman Platform Bed.
