A DIY Platform Bed For A Very Special Boy

Today I thought I'd show you the platform bed I made for my son and I got the inspiration to start this from Chanty 2 Chic.
I decided to change it up a bit and take it in my own direction as my boy loves this finished product! Hey that's good enough for me.This bed went together very easily and I finished it the same day I started it,and it didn't break the bank either!I finished it up with some black paint and I stained the rest to look like a worn finish.
This was just after I put everything together before the paint and stain.

I was thinking about you a little while ago. How did I ever lose track of you?. I deleted my blog roll once on accident and never got everybody back that I had popping up. I was keeping connected there. Shoot girl! Hope all is well with you. Your blog looks great! xo
