I needed a new toddler bed for my daughter because we have another baby coming soon. Instead of spending $60 on some rinky-dink bed from the store or pay way too much for a quality bed, I decided to try this project. I was able to use quality or standard pine for the entire bed (with a lot of sanding) so we saved a lot of money. Be sure to use dimensions specific to the bed and not what was listed. For the curved top, I recommend cutting and sanding a template out of MDF and then using a template router bit for the actual piece to be used. Great plan and cost savings!! Thank you, Ana!
