Sages bed

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Colossians 3:23

One of my favorite scriptures! I diligently try to get this one across to our kids. Whatever you do, do it with all your heart!! Unloading the dishwasher, cleaning your room, playing with your sisters, etc..... Nothing turns out good when you only try a little bit! 
 John completed Sages bed!! He has set his bar really high now! We all know what he's capable of..

1. John measured the mattress, then off of those measurements he knew what cuts we would need.
 2. We did four steps to achieve the old aged barn wood look we were after. First John beat the wood with a chain, saw, sand paper. Then Walnut wood stain, next grey stain, finally an ebony wax to finish.
 3. Getting the structure secure
 4. The first boards went on
 5. Then the final row
 6. John fabricated the hardware, we couldn't find anything to fit perfectly, so he bent the metal, and drilled two holes into it.
 7. I spray painted all the brackets, bolts, and washers
 8. Big daddy put them on
Our sweet friends came over to help get the beast into Sage's room
So stayed tuned the bedding will be next!! Have a blessed day, I'm off Little John and his old mommy are going to run 7 miles today!! Hope he can keep up, JK, Shirley
