Take two old doors, a wife who loves interior design shows and one husband/wood worker and what do you get? Why a new bed of course
Head and foot board are two old doors I got from a house that was being remodeled. (Personally I like the old doors better then the new ones but....)
My wife calls one morning shortly after leaving the house and tells me there are several old doors out in the yard of a house that being remodeled and that I need to go get them! Being the good husband I drive up and ask about the doors. The lady makes a quick phone call and comes back and tells me I can have them, just haul them off. Of course I have to take all them, including the ones I don't want.
Wife tells me she wants a bed made from them. After some sketching and discussing she got what she wanted. I used poplar for the posts and rails. Lee Valley hardware.
And for those that missed the previous post. I installed the bed earlier this week and discovered we had been over generous in allowing space around the mattress for sheets and blankets. So I had to take it back to the shop and cut it down both directions. Perfect fit this time.
