About This Project

premium pine boards from Home Depot and builder grade lumber

I was inspired to build this bed by this post at Big Box Detox. http://www.bigboxdetox.com/diy-make-own-upholstered-bed

I chose not to build the headboard because I have my bed placed in front of a window. However, I may add it in the future. For those of you going on a search for fabric and batting I recommend scoping out Joann's Fabric and Crafts, especially when they offer 50% coupons. The cost for me for wood, batting and fabric was less than $150! My project can also be found on my blog at designroost.net

Happy building!
