If you remember, last month I shared how our bed (for the last year of our marriage and apparently all through Chris's college career) consists of no more than the mattress sitting on the box spring (check it out here). Well ladies and gents, we are moving up in the world.
|Our room after we moved in but before we painted... Actually at the beginning of the painting process here!|
|Well lookie here! That is off the floor! All thanks to a metal bed frame for free from Craigslist!|
|Christopher planning the project in his head. Any guesses as to what is in front of him?|
|Mounting a support for our DIY headboard.|
|Always a helper...|
|Support prep finished!|
|One side finished! I helped with the level. Any ideas yet?|
|Phew! Those were heavy to hold and screw up!|
|What a difference!|
Figured it out yet? They are the bottoms of two old solid wood doors!
Here is the breakdown:
Wood Doors= $5 on Craigslist
Metal Bed Frame= FREE on craigslist
Wood and Screws to hold and support the doors= $5 at Lowes
Total Cost= $10
We love our new look, especially the wonderful cost of it! Total supporter of being thrifty!
