We needed a bed for our girls but had very little time to build one. My husband found Anna's site and we were excited to give this project a try. In today's market it's easy to spend a lot and not get much with regards to quality or longevity. At least, if we build it, we know the quality of the material, the workmanship and the love that go into whatever it is we are making. Without the encouragement and easy to follow plans and instruction I doubt we'd have been able to accomplish so much. Our girls just love their new bed.. THANKS ANNA! Now... on to the next project. The folks at our local hardware stores are getting to know us by name! ;-)
