I made my bed ~ the little lioness

I made my bed

My old cheap and nasty Fantastic Furniture bedframe has been overdue for replacing for ages, and I’ve finally did it yesterday!

I made a bed

I picked up this wooden frame and four slats for $40 just around the corner after finding it on Gumtree.

It only came with 4 or 12 slats, so it was off to Bunnings to get wood. 2.4 metre lengths of the 70mm x 35mm were the best bet, so I got eight, didn’t run my trolley into anyone and took them home. The pine planks set me back $23.

Some sawing and sanding later.

And the help of an electric screwdriver.

Yay! Solid Bed!

    Oh that’s so very clever. I wouldn’t have a clue where to start!

    The bed looks great, doesn’t look like a DIY at all (I guess that’s the point of all DIY’s though, right?!).
