With my bed basically finished and moving day looming in hours rather than days, I had an idea and wanted to see if I could manage it in time.
Having a strong idea of how to do it this time, it went super fast. I picked up scrap pieces, marked them all to length before I started and then had a field day with the saws. I will admit I was even so certain about my mathematics and cutting skills that I did not do a dry fit or anything. It wasn’t that particular..
Can you guess what it is?
My birthday gift from my mother arrived today, as well – it’s the quilt you see.
Since I had a strong idea of how to do it this time, I built the entire thing and then kind of worked backwards. My nailer and nails are at the new place, so I opted to just keep the osb panels in… once I’m up there I will put the pretty wood on them. (I tested, they fit just fine)
And then I stained it red.
The quilt is for this – you’ll notice it’s the same size. :) It’s a dog bed!
I took the original dimensions of my bed and scaled it to an appropriate size. It’s bigger than absolutely necessary, but who doesn’t like to sprawl out from time to time?
Just look at that face. She needs a bed!
Also, she helped build the big one. ;) That earns you a bed or your own, right?!
Unlike my bed, which is made with knock-down brackets, I just screwed hers together. It’s light enough I can carry it by myself without problem and small enough to easily fit through the ridiculous staircase that you will surely see photos of in the next day or so when I post pictures of the bed in its proper home.
