We also bought a bed frame. For the past 15 years, we've just used our mattress on a box spring on the floor, but I was looking to get some more storage space in our room, so we bought a bed with drawers underneath.
Elijah and Nathaniel put together the bed while Malachi and I put together the headboard. I finished making the drawers under the bed today, so now it's done!
Behind the headboard are little shelves, too:
Lydia put in the middle shelf. She wanted to help.
