The bed is (not quite) finished.
It now awaits:
- Two mattresses
Requests kept coming in.
Two granddaughters requested the trundle bed. Nana was to make the mattresses, once I made the bed. As you see in the list above, the list has expanded a bit. Of course, beds need “stuff” in them, to allow sleeping comfort. I can see Sandy spending a few hours in the sewing room; she has become the in-house upholsterer.
Here is the bed, while it awaits the supplies mentioned earlier. I applied two coats of Waterlox Original Sealer, followed by the Moses T’s St John Wax finish; it is made and sold by my friend Stephen Shepherd, publisher of the Full Chisel blog.
Note: I have no commercial relationship with Stephen – I simply love his finishing materials! Easy to apply, and a little bit goes a long way. I used a lint-free rag and rubbed on the St John’s finish. The black walnut is a wonderful, rich color!
