Our New Bed



Eight years ago I was in Colorado at my mom's house for Christmas. One evening I was perusing catalogs and stumbled upon a bookcase bed that I immediately fell in love with. I kept the catalog and hoped in my heart that my future husband would build it for us someday. Late last night, we moved Tom's masterpiece from the garage into our bedroom. It has been two weeks in the making...eight years in the waiting.

It is beautiful...so much better than the catalog offered. More than that, it was made with great love and much prayer. Eight years later...I can definitely say it was worth the wait.

It is built out of blue-stained pine. It is a locally grown and milled. Rumor is the blue stain in the grain is from a fungus (which is dead and no longer growing). It has a unusual and rustic look to it. I LOVE IT!

Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous bed and I agree better than any catalog, the hands of your husband built it. May you have many wondeful, loved filled nights in that bed!
