There is always company coming over and it would be so nice to not have to haul air mattresses out of the garage or shove things in closets to make room for trundle beds.

There was a few times while she tried to make thi step perfect but anything gets great at th end here is what she said.
The first redo occurred because the young man who assisted me at the hardware store told me it wasn’t possible to get solid wood pieces in the measurements called for in my instruction manual, so I tried cutting some of the leftover raw materials to size and screwed them together. I wasn’t totally satisfied with the end result, which seemed a little wobbly.
The second redo occurred because I decided I’d save some time and just have the lengths cut while I was at the store since they could set the saw to cut at the length I needed for multiple pieces instead of having to measure and cut each one individually with my miter saw. I took the wood home and assembled the new frame immediately.
