Work in Progress...Farmhouse Bed (King Size)

If you haven't discovered then you seriously need to.  I love so many of the plans on this site.  I fell in love with their original plan (Farmhouse Bed) and set my heart to making this.  Thank goodness my dad is a jack of all trades and my brother has lots of tools.  Bring them together and I have been blessed with the help I need to make this happen.
Foot board slats and head board slats...a bed in the making
Cutting wood is fun to do...especially with the right tools (ie Miter Saw)

*Update:  The bed is built and awaiting finishing touches downstairs.  But we'll save the whole reveal for another post.

Repurposed: Bumper Pads into Toddler Duvet Cover

Most likely you are probably sick of the nursery bedding you picked out.  But if you are like me and you made or bought new stuff for a convertible crib (that didn't convert :P grrrrr) then you may find yourself attached to bedding that hasn't had a chance to outgrow your kiddo.  Bring on this great tutorial and idea on how to turn you bumper pads into a toddler bed size duvet cover.
