Outdoorsy What are you most proud of? I pulled the bed frame from a heap of debris that accumulated from projects we did around the house over the winter. This bed has done it's rounds as it was my youngest brother's childhood bed back in the 70's and my two, now adult children's bed growing up. I couldn't let it go to the Landfill with all the other debris. I love the sentimental value of this piece and it is a trip down memory lane every time I sit in it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's a fairly simple project that can be done in an afternoon.

What you will need

  • Old twin bed frame
  • 2x4's
  • deck boards
  • large galvanized screws
  • exterior paint.
