Part 1: Kids bed

07-09-2012 05:12 PM by pdegreyt | 3 comments »

This project has been undergoing some transformation since I went through the design process and will look very different from the concept picture here, my wife first wanted a lager lip on the side to put some storage on as seen in the picture. but has now decided to not have this lip/ storage on the side.
