About This Project

I never thought I would have been able to do this. Thanks Anna! This was my first time building anything. It was a great learning experience. My husband was a big help. He got me comfortable with operating the power tools and assisted me with attaching the posts. This project took a lot longer to put together because I have an extremely active two year old. :-) So I had to do this when pee wee was napping or preoccupied. Originally I wanted to stain the wood Espresso but for some reason I couldn't find Espresso stain sold anywhere in Vegas. I took a swatch down to the local paint shop to have it matched but when the second coat of stain was on the footboard I realized it was not at all the color I had in mind. I had to resand all of it down and the second time around I went with a primer and espresso spray paint. I had a boxspring so instead of making the makeshift boxsprings I found the design in another plan for adding the strip to the sideboards so that slats could be laid down for the boxspring. It turned out amazing! My next project is the farmhouse nightstands. I can't wait!
