Built a Full sized bed for my Grand-daughter Chloe she is 2 and one for my Nephew Caden almost 3.
The beds are the same design. One has the raised panel exposed the other is reversed.
Wooden side rails are 5 1/2 ” and have steel hardware to support the wooden frame and slats.

I foresee alot of jumping in the future.

Maybe “missional”? Nice beds!

Or would that be “tradmissional”, or maybe even “tradissional”? ;)

My untrained eye is thinking a bit of a hybrid?

Whatever you want to call it, saying “nice job” would be hard to argue with!

John, those are a pair of nice looking beds. I like the way you personalized them for each of the children.

I am thinking of building a bed myself where did you get the hardware and is it hard to install?

Great grain.

Great lines.

I wouldn’t know what to call them … except … a really nicely done project that the kids are sure to enjoy (if they’re anything like my brothers and I were … “ruin” might be a better word LOL!)
