My New Bed

This in one of my ...and So On's...
This is the reason why I have not sewed in a few weeks.  This and our summer travels.
This is a dream come true for me and I have to say, I'm pretty darn pleased with it!!
No, not the quilt
I built the bed!!
(I did make the quilt though, and the pillows, a few years ago.  That's another post for another day.)
I found the plans on Knock-Off Wood and followed Ana's instructions.
And $150 and three sanders later.... wha-la!
The story (in short):  I have been saving my pennies for years for a nice bedroom set and I'm still far off my goal. Then I came across Knock-Off Wood and stars started dancing around me and I knew I had found it.

It all went together nicely.  We wore out our own sander and then borrowed another which we promptly burned up and then we borrowed a bigger one which finished the job.  We now know what kind of sander we want when we go buy a new one.  ;)

Now check out this and notice the price for the bed.

I love the arched headboard!
My next furniture project is night stands...
Stay Tuned!!
