My Bed....

I had a few requests to put my bed on too. I said I was going to put it on but I forgot. Sorry, I seem to be doing that a lot lately. Well here it is, Completed. Next on the agenda will be to make us bedside stands to match. I may have to take a woodworking class first before I start on that task. It is a platform bed that is very sturdy. This is my new hobby and I love it. To make something that we can use and looks alright is very rewarding for me. As you can see we need new lamps shades and paint the walls yet.

Look what I made!

I saw this organizer at the Pottery Barn website and really liked it. Well Of course they were sold out so decided to make my own. Well I decided I liked mine so much better because I made it with things that we needed or will use. We have hooks for keys and coats and a cork board for notes. A letter bin holder for misc. things such as sunglasses or mail. I bolted it to the wall because with my 2 boys, hanging their first coat would take it down otherwise (hence why we have galvanized plumbing pipes for curtain rods). I guess I take a part in that too since I am going to hang my purse there too. I am really happy with my end result.
