Wow. One post on Apartment Therapy and my blog has doubled in hits! Oh, the wonders of internet communication!
Thanks for everyone's words of encouragement. For those of you with bug/dust concerns, I haven't had any problems so far. Instead of using diatomaceous earth, I simply sprayed the entire structure with bleach and then hosed it down well (granted, it was about 90F and did it on my driveway...wouldn't suggest doing something like this indoors). I have stark-white pillowcases and they have yet to get dirty from rubbing up against the pickets.
The two attached posts are from Hilltop Hanover Farm's blog. While interning there this summer, I began a mini-series on how-to sustainable living projects. More to come, I promise!
