Storage Daybed Tips

* Under Construction * 

My wife came to me a few months back excitedly holding a laptop and exclaiming that she had found the perfect first bed for our two year old daughter. When I was finally able to calm her down enough to find out what she was talking about, she showed me this post.

I followed directions from the post with little deviation. However, I am writing this post to provide a few more details on some of the steps, a couple of tips I picked up along the way and the customizations I created.

I used to not bother measuring fastener holes but misaligned screws are very noticeable on a finished product. The first thing I did after cutting plywood is to mark the screw holes before assembling the boxes.
