Boys Bed Part 1

Have you checked out the Knock Off Wood site?
This lady, Ana,  is amazing!
And totally gives us all the  sweet hook-up!

I have been thrifting high and low for sometime to find the type of bed I had envisioned for my boys room.
Tall back ,smaller front. 
But couldn't find one.
Finally after stalking (to put it lightly) the knock off wood site I found a bed so similar to what I had envisioned.

So after tweaking the plans slightly to adjust for a trundle bed. 
We are well on our way to having it done.
(we heightened  all the legs and also built the back board/foot board a little taller)

Here is my man slave  (tehe) hard at work cutting wood.

Lots of boards and cuts later we have a foot board...

Lots more cuts and measurements and now we have the head board...

Now on to the side rails...
(sorry I forgot to take pictures as we went along)

This is coming together rather nicely and quickly.

All thanks to this guy! 
When I say "  we"   worked on it together. 
We did, but mostly him. 
I really carried boards, helped measure, etc.

And as Mother Nature would have it, you can see in the pictures that it started to snow!
So we got the bed sanded but the paint will have to wait until it warms up again!
So stay tuned!
