Remember this? Yes, the car accident. Well, our daughter was traumatized by the event.

One thing she kept telling us is that she would feel safer in a bigger bed. Then, she started falling out of bed which she had never done before – dang nightmares.

So, we bought a double/full bed but no bed frame – those things are expensive and not in the budget.

You might even say they are not necessary but I thought I would keep an eye out at Antique stores, yard sales etc. for a makeover project.

I hinted that I found an item and shared a before photo and now am going to reveal our progress….

The challenge we have faced is that we have to retrofit the boards to fit on the modern frames (no slots for metal hooks as on old beds)…..

I want to rough it up a bit with sand paper and our daughter has flowery dreams for it so we will find a compromise.

But my handy hubby is finding a way to make it work and just waiting for a piece be bought on Ebay….total project cost will be under $100.
