Traditional Toddler Bed: Simple Headboard

Submitted by Rosie_R on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 18:22

I made this bed for my daughter who is not yet two, but can climb out of her crib.

I needed to use some different lumber: 2x3's instead of 2x2's and 1x3's instead of 1x2's. I adjusted the headboard, as beadboard was not available and this simple design seemed more suitable for us. I was very pleased with the simplicity of the plan, although I wish I had read it more carefully before I began. I loved the Kreg jig also. Very easy to use.
