I spent 7.5 hours making this queen size bed frame. I used mostly reclaimed wood, except for the 1×4 spruce trim along the outside. It cost me under $20 in materials. Also, it was my first time using double rabbet joints. Let’s hope this one lasts longer than our previous metal frame did.
Made a simple, sturdy bench for our younger children to use at the table. Made it out of 4 2×6’s, and it cost me under $15. Now, Our three children don’t have to share two chairs. It actually works great.
After 20 years of Christmases together, we bought our first live tree tonight. We brought 4 of our children with us. It was a pleasant experience. And our home smells like a forest. 🙂
