I wanted to write a quick intro for Eric’s Ann Marie Daybed Build and just thank him for this particular build! I am so honored when any one of you build from my plans, but this piece, and the entire Ann Marie Collection hold a very special place in my heart. This collection is my own design, and not a specialty retailer inspired collection and is named in honor of my Aunt Ann Marie who passed away very unexpectedly. Seeing Eric’s showcase photos of this beautiful bed, built for his daughter (with similar name… Ryan!) as a holiday surprise, has really hit home for me, and I just needed to say a very very public (love you guys) thank you!
Thank you for helping me fulfill a dream of mine, by allowing me to see my own furnture designs in homes across the country and around the world. I can’t begin to tell you how special that is to me. And thank you for (albeit accidentally) allowing that little special legacy in my Aunt’s honor live on… I hope your little girl adores this bed, and thank you for sharing with all of us… and now I will stop talking…. ha!
“I finally have decided on color and what to do with the back so here they are! I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate your website and what it has allowed me to do!
I made a few minor tweaks (due to my carpentry skills or lack there of) by putting drawer faces, pulls and a 7/16 sheet of plywood wrapped in material and padding for extra comfort.
I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face in the morning when she gets to go into her room. I hope I was able to put together what you had envisioned when designing this bed!”
Oh Trust me… you did!
