Upholstered Toddler Bed - Little Boy Style

I used as much reclaimed wood as I could to make this project as inexpensive as possible...and since it was going to be covered, you can't tell.  What I couldn't get from scrap or the pallet I tore apart, I bought at Orange...only to discover that they do not sell untreated 2x6s in Hawaii.  So I improvised and screwed a couple 1x6s together, and it worked just fine.  The only real problem I ran into was that reclaimed wood isn't really all that straight...so some of it went together by sheer force of will!  :)  It was my first build completely without my husband...and at 8 months pregnant, I definitely got a workout!
