I discovered your Sawdust Girl website about 18 months ago. I’ve been building up the courage to take on a built-in bed project that my youngest daughter and I have dreamed up for her bedroom. Together, we’ve been planning the design and layout for nearly a year. I had contractors come in to give me quotes – around $3,500 AUS! Way out of our budget!
By studying all of your online plans, reading your client’s experiences and diaries, studying your website photos and drawing up my own plans I finally had the courage to take the plunge and begin the build. Funnily enough, the design changed as the build began … what we thought would look good, just didn’t!
I have finished making the bed. It took about 5 weeks. I chose to build it in by securing it to the walls. Funnily enough you posted plans on building a similar bed, just as I was nearly finished making mine!
I’m really proud of the final outcome and my 12 year old is totally thrilled. My husband can’t believe that I built it and that it has working drawers that soft close!
Thank you for opening your home and sharing your projects, plans, expertise and experiences.
Best wishes and kind regards,
