Daybed- Our First Project

Submitted by chowie on Wed, 09/19/2012 - 13:52

This was my and my husband's first project and it was easier than expected. There were slight imperfections with the drawers, but they were hidden by the faces and trim. It was our first time using a Kreg jig and we LOVED it!! We will be building furniture for Christmas presents this year, we are hooked!! The project took one weekend to build, and we spent around 4-5 hours a day.... remember we are newbies so we had to refer to the plan ... a lot! We went with the plywood top and it is sturdy and we can't wait to paint it and get it looking like a finished product. My husband was testing the daybed sans mattress.

Estimated Cost
$150 including hardware
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
