Is this from Lowe's?

So…..We’re having a baby. That’s why we needed a bigger bed. My first thought was to use some leftover material that I bought in the Lowe’s. Finally, I built this King size bed from it during my weekend. Don’t you think that this lumber feels itself better in this form than being in the dumpster?...

I love this! I especially like how you shaped the wood to give it a earthy look. Very well done. I bet when the time comes you could sell this for 2 g’s!

I like the rustic look and the way you worked the knots into it. Best use I have seen from construction grade pine!

Amazing what can be built out of construction grade lumber , I really like the design.

A king size may not be big enough if you are planning on sharing it with the little one.

wow, I would not have guessed, from construction lumber. That is an excellent execution.

Construction lumber is comparatively cheap so I’ve used it to make a few bunk beds and such, strong and cost effective, plenty good for rambunctious kids. But I’ve never considered dressing it up like this. I like this a lot. I’m gonna favorite this and give a shot at making something like it. Thanks for the idea.

Looks very nice. Now, are you going to make a matching dresser and night stands?

I can just see Fred and Wilma Flintstone sleeping in it.

But….... a really cool bed – love it.
