This is a daybed that was completed in July 2005. I built it from Southern Yellow Pine. I distressed it by adding wormholes, gouge marks, and sanding down all sharp edges. The finish is just a light brown stain with a dark paste wax. The wax filled in the distressed marks and highlighted them. This daybed is not our standard size. I built this one in a full size. If you notice in one of the building pictures, I have two sets if sides. This is because I built the first one as a twin. I didn’t look closely at the ticket. I just assumed it’s a daybed, it will be twin.
I suspended a set of 3 drawers under the bed and then added a trundle under that. This made for a massively tall bed. The iron was ordered from King Architectural Metals. I also made a simple 6 dresser to match.
