About This Project

This is my first piece of furniture I've ever made from a plan. I would recommend this for someone who is new to the craft. I also sanded each board before I put it together. I just find this easier to do than sanding it afterwards. Plus, it gives me the chance to look at the grain and see where I might want it.
Both the stain and clear coat I used can be washed out of your brush with soap and water.

Really like the white wash look, great job! Also, love the bedding and the tray. Did you make that tray, too?
