I used pallet wood for the head and foot boards and followed Jenny's Hinged Footboard plans at http://www.birdsandsoap.blogspot.com/ with a few modifications for stability so this can withstand my dogs' constant wrestling matches! The balance of the lumber was all house construction leftovers so all I bought were hinges and barrel bolts. I adore ALL the storage! I am in love with this site because it gets you "going" and then your imagination can take over and let you customize. Thank you Anna and Jenny! See my blog for a step by step.
