In early December, we dismantled our bed, and have since been living on the floor. This bed we made last summer was just too high for the dogs. There were several times that both dogs fell or rolled off the bed. And Grace really struggled to get on it sometimes.
So in fear that we would see one of our dogs get injured, we decided to forgo the idea of having cubbies underneath the bed for storage.
It really is about the dogs.
While I do love camping, I don’t want to feel like I am doing it all the time.
No fear since that bed was made in pieces, we are now using those cubbies as shelves in our closet. So it has actually worked out pretty nicely, except for the whole sleeping on the floor for a couple months part.
We finally got around to making our new bed recently.
We saw a headboard in the PX that was the inspiration for this. We just didn’t want to spend $900 for just the headboard.
I also don’t get the idea of bed skirts.
So Tom solved both of these problems with this new design. We spent a little under $200 for this. Bargain!
Tom did this all in an afternoon. It is a fairly quick put together from watching him. I love that I can point at something or think of a design, and then Tom can make it come to life. He is so handy!
If you would like more directions on how to measure and whatnot don’t hesitate to ask!
Our bedroom looks like a bedroom again! I really love the headboard, and the dogs love the ease of getting up on it.
