So a while ago Jared started making a platform bed for me. I just wanted something very simple and had a very small budget so we decided to make it.


It’s finally done and I thought I’d share it here on the blog.

You know, pictures of the completed bed, detail shots, etc. Only problem is

this one thinks she needs to be in the way. All. The. Time. So I thought, ok I’ll let her get on the bed (which I never do she’s crazy!) and see if she’ll sit still while I take pictures.


I got one shot in


and she decided that the risk of Dad finding her on the bed was too great so she jumped off.


and decided to lay directly in front of the bed.


Did you see my sweet 13 year old girl laying over there nicely in HER bed?


But, when she gets attention – this one all of a sudden needs it and goes all psycho puppy


I guess I’ll try again when the room is finished 🙂

  1. Love the bed! Your hubs did an awesome job. Cute pup. We have a dog that likes the bed too but I'm not a fan of her being in the bed so she only gets up there once in a blue moon. Can't wait to see more pics of the finished room love how it looks!

  2. LOVE your dog photos! I was more interested in them than the bed –great job on the bed too! What great light in your bedroom! Would love to know what model camera and lens you used. Thanks!

  3. Wow, I'm very impressed! That is beautiful! And the sweet doggies aren't too shabby either!
