I built my first daybed in May of 2010, and my second one in August of 2010. I've since moved one of the daybeds to my new nursery I'm creating. These beds are so versitle, so sturdy, and can be moved anywhere and 'go' with whatever decor. I love both of them!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$450 for BOTH beds
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
blondewood plywood, poplar, select pine
Finish Used
I primed the beds with Kilz oil based primer, then added a bunch of ultra white paint by Behr. I finished with sanding down the edges and staining them, before applying a top coat of polycrylic. Only use polycrilic, not polyurethane for white painted furniture!
