Platform bed for my toddler

Submitted by Livvyhill on Mon, 06/03/2013 - 05:10

This is the first thing I've ever built!! My 2.5 year old son was ready to move out of his crib, so I wanted to build him a bed low to the ground. He loves it!! I'm very proud of myself for being able to do this:) Perfect plans!!! If i can do this, anyone can:)

PS I made the headboard from plywood and screwed planks in, stained them with the same stain (used vinyl letters for a stencil when staining) and attached to bed-- really easy.
