Rowan's New Bed!

A few months ago I discovered this awesome website Knock-Off Wood. We were already thinking of getting Rowan a twin bed since he was barely fitting in his toddler bed anymore. Then I found the website and the plans for this bed and decided we should build Rowan a bed! Mike wasn't thrilled with the idea at first, but quickly realized I was right and we needed to build him a bed ;) The bed (and a lot of the furniture) is actually a knock-off from this site, here is his bed, it actually is listed at $900!!!
It was pretty easy to build, but did take FOREVER, mostly because we don't have a garage (I now understand what Mike has been complaining about for the last few years!) I already have several more projects picked out (especially this FarmHouse Table- with benches), but I'm thinking for the next one we'll need to borrow someone's garage....

the piece's built, just needed painted

(it's really comfy..)

You did a great job on this bed! Love the storage underneath! Smart thinking! I accidentally came upon Knock-off Wood while browsing craft blogs. I was hooked from Day 1 and several of my friends are now too! Ana has inspired so many of us to try something new...I'm glad I did. I've got two projects under my belt so far. Great job on the bed! You should be very proud of yourself!
