Upcycling: The process of converting something that would otherwise be waste, into another product of equal or better value.
The Bed Bar came about when I mentioned to Mr. Crafty, that we should get rid of the bed frame and headboards and just put the mattress on the floor. We co-sleep with our daughter, so this would keep me from worrying about her falling out of bed.
Our previous place was too small for any new additions, so we agreed that the project would start once we moved. Well, he started working on it pretty much as soon as we moved in and finished it enough to move inside in September. In addition to the bed, he used some wrought iron pieces and our wine rack. I plan on getting a wine fridge soon, so I didn't mind it being donated to the project :)
He's going to add some finishing touches, including the back of the wine rack and some glass holders, but I think it's already pretty cool as is.
I don't have any measurements or instructions for this, because Mr. Crafty says he doesn't believe in making plans for his woodworking. In his words, "I just like to start and go at it". Ummm, okay :)
I'll update when it's all finished!
