The bed was a great project to start with. Very easy to follow instructions. I was a little worried that the bed was going to be too big, but once my husband and I got it together it was perfect. I used the metal frame that the bed already sat on, so I didn't need supports. I added a special touch for my husband since it was almost our anniversay. It's barely noticable but I carved our initials into the footboard. He loved it! After I completed the bed I moved on to the table. I forgot to take progress pictures. My next project I will be sure to do so. This was a joy to build. I still can't believe I made these beautiful peices! One more bedside table to build and my room will have all new furniture. Thank you Ana for the plans!! It's going to be tough to figure out what to build next. so many plans to choose from! :)
