Katie is looking for some DIY info: I love your site and I remembered seeing a funky bed in one of your writer's mom's bedrooms a while back. I finally found the post- and I'm trying to figure out how she made the platform bed. Did she do it herself? I'm coveting it right now. If it's not too difficult, i'd like to do it myself. otherwise, i'd like to find something relatively cheap, but similar...

One final sidenote is that I'm a tall woman, so I'd like to get it a bit higher off the ground. Also, i'd like it to be fairly sturdy (wink). i saw a post about the height of platform beds as well, but i just wonder if anybody has any good advice for me.

I'm open to suggestions! Thanks!

Please share your advice and ideas with Katie in the comments...
