I’m afraid my summary makes it seem more simple than it actually was, but Taylor and I were making adjustments as we went. A couple of things that we did that we think was helpful and some warnings.
1. Build the bed in the room it is going to live in.
2. Wait to stain it until you assemble it. That way you can only stain what you see.
3. Don’t forget to add legs in the middle of your bed. Taylor and I forgot this step! It wasn’t until we were about to fall asleep that Taylor remembered this. Thank goodness.
