« Part 9: Bonus Part 10 of Bed series no next part

I mentioned the weird staircase – there you have it. Not quite sure how we did it, but we managed to get all of the pieces up, around and through without problem. Awesome!

I dressed up both of the beds. Omni saw her blankets get put on it and could barely wait until I told her “okay!” and she jumped up and claimed her bed. She LOVES IT.

Another angle.

She also decided that my bed is pretty awesome.

Thoughts:

-I definitely want to build the wings for it, although I’ll need to move the bed 90 degrees to do it.
-It’s tall, taller than I anticipated, but I like that A LOT. I’m fairly tall and it’s comfortable for me.
-You have no idea how much of a pain that was to re-assemble. But I did it, so go me.
-I’m going to put the panels on the dog bed in a few days. In the meantime, Omni doesn’t really mind. ;)
-I really want to work in hardwood next time. Even if it means heavier furniture.

I really appreciate the support I’ve been getting on this. Had I been doing it just on my own I wouldn’t have documented it, for sure, and would likely have gotten frustrated at some point and just given up. I’ve tried to do some bigger projects like this before and ended up just not doing them.

You’ve really no idea how much I appreciate it. Not sure what the next “big” project will be, but I have no doubt I can do it.

There are handrails, they’re just outside of the angle on both sides – it’s a very awkward space. :)

that center is scary ,
especially staggering down for a cup of coffee .

maybe a couple of 2×4’s flat lagged to the lower side wall ,
and one across the top of them following the stair angle .
it could be removed as needed ,
like when you make a dresser .
if you ever leave there ,
fill the holes with tooth paste (LOL) !

told you it was going to be tall ;) but looks great! and matches Omni’s bed (or is it the other way around).

congratulations!

Well done, Lis. Hard work over now as you’ve made your bed you can lie on it too.

I’m going to replace the mattress “soon” and am intending on getting a foam one, rather than a spring one. It will be much shorter and then the bed won’t look so tall. The mattress now is over 9” thick.

This has been a fun project to watch..thank you. And congrats on the new sleeping arrangement. Now do you think Omni will actually stay on her bed or crawl in yours:-)

-- Jeff , Illinois Please...can I stay in the basement a little longer, please!

Have your say...
