So this story starts with a visit from my parents shortly after purchasing my house the year I bought it. That year I bought a mattress but nothing else so they had the luxurious opportunity to live like a college student with a mattress directly on the floor. I made the silly promise that their next visit I would have a bed frame (hopefully one that I would build on my own).
I’ll give you one guess what I did not have when my old man visited the following Christmas. Well this year my whole family is coming to visit for the holidays and I fear my mother would not be as easy going as my dad was to sleep essentially on the floor so go ahead and scroll down to see how I went from Mattress on the floor to what I consider a pretty decent looking bed frame (for a first piece of furniture)
