My little man's bed

Submitted by bd on Sun, 02/23/2014 - 18:54

Pretty basic design - I made a few modifications to the published plans.
1) Slightly longer guard railings
2) Made the cleats flush with the bottom of the side rails so that the guard rails are elevated above the mattress.
3) Added "slat" design for the headboard.

Overall a pretty simple project, but like everything, takes time. Best of all, my little man loved it at first sight and is already using it!

Right before you posted this, we were just looking at this plan after coming to the realization that our little lady is going to graduate from her crib soon. I love the modifications that you made and stain that you used. Awesome work!
