There are so many things that I feel I need, but actually they are just things I want. Doesn't this always happen. I know I need a bed, a desk, a chair, and a dresser. Necessary right? I have a desk from home that I will use. Of course there was a DIY desk I wanted to make, but i'll just wait until I have an actual house. I figured I could save space and money by making a bed frame with storage underneath. This bed to be exact...
I can put baskets on the bottom to use as drawers. The only thing I plan on changing is the headboard. I found a tutorial on how to make a tufted headboard and it looks fairly easy. So far I have bought fabric and foam; all I need now is peg board and a button kit. I found clearance fabric in a coral color for $9 a yard. I had to buy two yards because it is thin and see-through. During the memorial day sale at Joanns I was able to snatch a little more than one yard of 2" foam for $15!!! instead of $30.99 a yard!!!
There are a few modifications I would make, and when I do make it i'll be sure to post my own tutorial to share!
I would like to make this lampshade as well and put it on a simple floor lamp.
