Where I muse about just about everything...
From the weather in Texas, to my kids, pets, travel and friendships. Basically, about life. And oh yeah, about my Coquette Bath & Home™ products, too.
Well, almost. There is still a little to be done. I cut one 2x6 wrong (using the bad end...) and did the same thing with one of the 2x4's for the headboard leg. But the moulding turned out pretty nice. What do you think?
The basic plan is from Ana-White.com. But I am (probably) going to modify it a bit. I really do not like the idea of a 2x4 front post. So probably am going to buy some turned legs and use those, instead. I've been using one of those metal frames, and it scoots around the floor. The center beam of it dropped out the other night and I've been pretty cautious every since. Since the bedroom floor is laminate, the bed, on its rollers, scoots. Oh well...
I have a bit of caulking to do. But I bought a pocket hole jig for screws and although you cannot see them (I flipped the headboard up for the pretty side showing for its photo), I'm pretty pleased with them. I didn't buy the expensive unit Ms. White is advertising (only because my local store didn't have it in stock and I wasn't going to wait for something to arrive by mail) but the store did have a pretty sturdy metal one. And I bought it.
I'm trying to decide what color to paint the bed, now. I probably will go with white (or an offwhite) but I really do want to paint it apple green!
But considering the rest of the room is gray and steel blue and white, and black...white is probably the best color. Next up...a new dining table. I really like making things! And now that my garage is cleaned out...I'm going to do just that!
