You're such a hack....part II
All right, this North-Easterly facing window has been giving me fits all morning. It's officially impossible to photograph this room. But, I said I would show you my "hack" project, and I will if you'll excuse the bad photography.
After searching literally EVERYWHERE for a cool twin bed with storage, I knew I was on my own. I bought an old captain's bed off Craigslist and took it apart (it was originally two stacked pieces with a total of six drawers). Then I ordered Danish-style tapered wooden legs from Ebay and attached them to the bottom of the frame. I primed and sprayed the whole thing with black semi gloss, and this was the end result: a modern-looking storage bed. We're pretty happy with the results, and the total cost of the project was about $50!
