Pottery Barn Bed Project - Week #1

This past weekend we upgraded our bed from a Queen Pillow Top to a King Memory Foam.  This was a very exciting weekend for us!  

So of course I had to start searching for a new bed frame.  I had been eyeing a bed at Pottery Barn for awhile and of course for the bed frame alone it was $2,000.   I know I own a lot of Pottery Barn furniture, but I couldn't fathom spending $7,000 on a bedroom set.  I just couldn't do it!  So with a little looking my friend Lauren found me directions on how to make one.  She knew that Joe was very handy with the tools and I'm good with the paint, so she thought it was a great idea and so did I!  

This past weekend was the first weekend working on the new bed.  This project will take at least 3 weeks, but realistically 4.  So for now we will be sleeping on the 'floor'.

I'm not going to tell you which Pottery Barn Bed we are making until the very end.  We'll just let it be a surprise!  Let the mess begin!!!

PB Bed Project Week #1

This frame was in my parents garage for as long as I remember.  A few years ago I asked for it and it arrived next time my parents came up to visit.
