Needing a new bed to fill in floor space to the enlarged room in the old house, I decided to make one.
Not having much for tools, the bed is made using only a handsaw, chisels, a few clamps for glueing and a carving knive and wood rasps. The pine wood frame was then sanded and stained with a strong-brewed coffee paste then painted with an oil enamel which was wiped off in certain areas for a look of aging.
The nightstand to the left is actually an antique (about 150 years) picked up cheap a few weeks previously. It was already painted.
