A few days ago, I was flipping through a book called Show Me How, where I saw some basic instructions on how to build a loft bed. Noel and I were trying to think of ways to maximize the space in Mallory's room and this seemed to fit. So, instead of relaxing on this July 4th, I set out to Lowe's to buy some lumber and some hardware.
You can see the results below. Happy Birthday, America.
