How To: Build a Children's Bed On a Budget

Over the weekend a friend of ours built a bed for her son. We love the fact that she chose to do it herself vs. buying it from a store. It makes it so much more special. It also allowed her to choose her own fabrics that match his room. More photos after the jump...

She followed simple instructions from Gabrielle Blair of Design Mom. This is a perfect DIY project if you are looking to get a bed for your little one with a budget in mind. Our friend chose brown fabric for the base and jungle themed bedding that matches her son's room decor. This project also allows for custom mattress sizes. Be sure you measure yours before starting this project.

The bed turned out great. We wish we were there when her son saw the new bed for the first time. Great job Alex!
