A few weeks ago I posted a night stand I made for my daughter. It was all pallet wood and called “dockyard style” because it looks, quite frankly, like something you might find sitting on a dock some place. Well, she liked it and the follow on piece was a new full size bed.

Her mother provided the artwork and the steam punk lamps were added so that she can read in bed.

There is some new lumber but a point was made to keep it looking like the other parts. I have to admit, I didn’t like the way it looked until it was all set up in her room with the pillows and comforter in place.

Oh, and the bright pillow shams were hand made by her mother.

Fine job, neighbor! My wife liked it too. I may have to scrounge up some more pallets for myself if I ever get my porch completed.
