My pallet daybed

Monday, September 28, 2009

I'm impulsive. On Saturday, Andrew and I made the pallet bed I've had my eye on (visit Ashley Ann Photography for some real inspiration).
We got two pallets, put them together using bolts and hinges, and added 5 caster wheels to the base of the bed. I went to IKEA and bought a really inexpensive mattress. It needs a quilt and some throw pillows, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!

I think what I ended up making was a gigantic dog bed for Olive


**I have been meaning to blog about my mom, it's just hard to put it all into words.

Amee- I'm pretty sure the 'mattress' we bought at Ikea was smaller than a twin. I think it's a stretch to call it a mattress--it's more like a thick pad you would take camping :) Good luck!!
