Two drawers and two pairs of shutters, $4 at Habitat for Humanity Restore, Asheville, NC. The mattresses were pillows we had, and the leopard covers were made from one $2.88 fleece WalMart throw we repurposed from another project. Theres always white paint on hand.
Total time for this project? About a half hour.
I left the hinges on the shutters because I liked the way they looked. Since the shutters were oft-painted, that probably save me a bit of time, too.

I love the many ideas I've seen using shutters for headboards, but I love my own bed even more. So I decided to create these for my cats, although they still seem to prefer my bed, too.
