our homemade beds! was created by tonic
hi all,

i felt the need to brag a bit about my clever husband. he made me/us a bed for my birthday a few years ago, then he made our son one when he moved out of his cot. and this weekend we moved our daugther out of her cot into her new bed for her second birthday, which he made too.

she loves it and each morning announces 'i had a sleep in a BIG girls bed!' it is so gorgeous... anyway here they are...

Oh golly gosh ... they are beautiful!

I'm so envious of those of you with 'handy' husbands. My DH takes after my wonderful FIL, who mends everything he can with blue-tac and/or silicon. Very tiresome.

So, congratulations also on such an awesome choice in hubbie :D

Need any fencing? Some post holes dug, strainers put in? Could we arrange a swap for a few days? :D

WOW, those beds are stunning.
My "handy man" is good at chook houses and fences, but I think a bed would be a bit rough and rustic from his hands, there has been talk about it though LOL.
Lucky you, and your kids.[;)]

I was wondering the same thing as Tigger! Is it gum?

It looks so mystical and twisty....i want one! :D

My boyfriend has to think about it for a very long time, as he's more of a brainiac than a do-it man, lucky you! [;)]

thanks for the lovely comments, i will make sure he reads them! the curly wood is kiwifruit trunks. he found some being pulled out and asked to cut a few lengths of trunk to take.... he is very good at finding those sort of things.

he also does all my building, fences firewood etc, and does his share of looking after the kids. i am so fortunate! he has access to wood working tools at his work, his family own majacraft spinning wheels, so he is able to make some beautiful stuff. the toys he makes the kids out of wood are also awesome.

Awesome, I love the second one, so unique. Has he thought about making to sell?? I am sure they would go well.

yes, spook we keep telling him to do that. however they are busy enough with the spinning wheels. and the reality is that at the moment i think a new product that would not be at the cheap end of the market is probably not a good idea. i do not want him to work for peanuts!

however, one day it may be something he wants to more of...

There's just been an official opening of a hot-water cupboard in my house! Loads of beautiful new slatted warm and dry shelving on which to put towels and tea towels, near the kitchen and bathroom, instead of at the other end of the house! Marvellous. :D
