Work looks good.

Here’s a small hint – open the graphic in MS Paint, or any other graphic editor and “Rotate picture 90 degrees counter-clockwise (left)”. It would make your work look a LOT better! :-)

Looks great! But how do you get it to stay on the wall like that. ;-)

Seriously, it’s looks like a very well done set. The photos are a little blurry—what type of wood and finish did you use?

Idid rotate it, but somethjng on the LJ causes the photo to be cropped off as if you had not rotated it. So I gave up.

Unfortunately this bed was designed was in my pre-Sketchup days. I drafted it on graph paper. I would be glad to share, but the plans are on paper not a disc or hard drive and I don’t know how to forward them.

Have your say...
