I have been asked how much it cost us to build the new bed:
For all the timber, hardware, lights and electrical fittings, it came to a grand total of 1.256.956 COP / $430 US / £282, and just a fraction less for the mattress, which until I did the conversion, I thought was damned expensive, but now I have changed my mind!
Now for the bedside tables /night-stands…
The old bed, has now gone downstairs, the third bedroom which was a storeroom has been cleared, painted, and is now a Guest bedroom
Since taking the photo, I have put up a blind in here to, so it is fully functional, and possibly the quietest room in the house.
The matching bedside tables will come downstairs once I have made the new ones for upstairs!
