Handmade Christmas :: Part 1

If you haven't met Ana before, let me introduce you. Ana White posts (free) furniture plans on her site. Plans that are very similar to furniture from places like Potterybarn, West Elm, Land of Nod, Crate and Barrel, etc.
If Santa can pull it off, he'll be leaving these under--or next to our tree. When shopping for the WOW gift we go for every year we decided this would be our best option since we'll need them eventually (we've had the plans printed off for at least a year...). And our 4 year old begs us for bunkbeds frequently (ever since he saw the cousins--he wants one blue and one green just like theirs too).

Land of Nod sells their's for $1,499. Last time we priced lumber we figured the total cost to be around $130 and I pick up a gallon of mis-mixed paint for $5. All we need to add is a little manual labor and we are set!

Now where are those elves?

Is Santa going to build these?

That's the plan.
