BEDROOM





I did it! I built my bed frame! I'll post the simple DIY instructions after I test it out. It has to withstand all the tossing and turning, know what I'm sayin'? Don't want it collapsing on anyone. It was very easy, took me about an hour to put it together and cost only $165 for all the materials. Two sheets of plywood, six hairpin legs, three brackets and a handful of screws. Done. I was on a DIY adrenaline kick so I built a desk too. More to come! I pretty much hibernated the entire 3-day weekend building things and eating ice cream and catching up on Homeland. Claire Danes is absolutely super in it, along with the rest of the cast. I've been perfecting her crying chin twitch. It's priceless.
