I gathered up what I had around the farm,Scrap wood, paint from the re store,pallets left over from our Bonn fire and bricks I had saved for a rainy day!And of course My hand made toddler size bunk bed..It was an emotional moment deciding to use the bed..It was hand made when my oldest was 2.Just tall enough for the top bunk to be used as a changing station and took standard crib mattresses..My oldest used the bottom bunk until my middle son was old enough to go into a toddler bed..so he felt such a big boy when he was able to finally sleep up top(even tho it was only 3 feet from the floor lol)when the boys grew out of it It was passed to my daughter and then later converted into a full size canopy bed by putting them side by side and adding a bigger mattress.
when My daughter turned 13 she decided this bed was just not suitable for a teenager and it was then retired to the barn..I had considered saving it for my grand daughter but my husband and I decided we would build her a new bed of her own when the time comes..Soo Back to the project!!
Its not perfect and is a little rustic looking ,But I love it that way...and it cost us nothing...well I'm off to work on my blanket project some Hope everyone is having a wonderful evening!!
