BAA - Bed

Making the bed for the farmer was a lot harder than any prop i've ever made before, it had to be sturdy enough to support the weight of the farmer and the sheep, and needed to have blankets, pillow, ect.
 Bed starts with the mattress, which is just a big bit of MDF cut to size and rounded at the corners
 Bed posts are 4 metal tubes, cut to size and smoothed at the tips so they're all the same level
 Mattress is painted and the 4 legs are stuck to pieces of balsa, which are stuck to the bed
 Material is stuck to the mattress to make it more mattressy, and side skirts are added to make it look like a bed instead of a table.

Backboard added, pillow and duvet added, (cheers to Angie for sewing the pillow together, i can't sew to save my life.) bed finished.
