Coming up in this world

Okay maybe I should clarify that.We are coming up in the bedroom. We have been sleeping on the floor, for the past couple of months.

You might remember BT worked on restoring an antique wardrobe this past winter. We moved it into our room in early spring. We sold our bedroom set (thanks Julie!) and had been sleeping on the floor. Of course we had our mattress and box springs, but it was just like lying down on the floor at night.

Well hallelujah! BT got the bed finished that we had built. He stained it with fruit wood stain, re-stained it with more oak stain, and finished it with a wiping of walnut stain. It then soaked up 3 coats of poly urethane. The wood is quarter sawn oak. Gorgeous graining in it.

Here is the finished product. It turned out beautiful. By playing with the two stains it looks old. BT did a great job.

Now if we just don't fall out of bed tonight!

Patti it's just beautiful! I'd have slept on the floor a couple of months for that bed too. Of course, I might not be able to get up in the mornings. :) blessings, marlene

What a gorgeous bed, and well worth the wait... and sleeping on the floor! Hope you managed to not roll out last night! -tw

Wow! What a bed! Is that a hobby or a business?

We haven't even got to the sleeping on the floor stage of our bed construction. Soon I hope!

Love that wood!

Patti, that is just beautiful. That man of yours amazes me with all that he can do!

I hope neither of you fell out of bed last night.

Have a great weekend.
