Twin-size Storage Bed

Submitted by kristen on Sun, 07/17/2011 - 08:19

I love how this bed turned out! I wanted some of the extra detail that the Pottery Barn version had--like routered edges, which proved to complicate matters from Ana's plan. I also needed this in a twin, so I looked at Ana's Brookstone twin storage bed for some advice as I planned this build as well.

Two coats primer, one coat of Olympic no-VOC paint, and three coats of General Finished High Performance polyurethane in satin.

I sanded with 220 grit before initial coat of primer and with 320 grit between each coat of paint and sealer after.
