I used an old twin bed headboard and footboard. Plus a 1x4x8' board and a 1/2" piece of plywood. I purchased the bed for $15 at a second hand store
and purchased the board at my local hardware store.
My wonderful hubby gave me tools for Christmas last year and this was my first project to use my "mini" circular saw. I LOVE IT!. The tools are great to have so now I don't have to wait for him to be home to help me out.
