We removed the roof off an old chicken house in the heart of South Carolina. 100+ year old heart pine was the treasure we were able to use! Had to buy the 4x4's but we were able to use the old pine for the rest. Use natural oil stain on the heart pine and had Sherwin Williams do a custom stain to match the new 4x4 posts. Plus 2 coats of polyacrylic and sanded with extremely fine paper after stain and both coats for a wonderfully smooth finish.
And then attached our son's sidecar cosleeper back to the bed) that's what is over to the side.
Gorgeous!! I love the finish!
Beautiful! and the fact that it's recycled just makes it even better - good job!
Wow, that is a great find and so beautiful! I'm both jealous and amazed! LOL Excellent job!!
what are the dimensions/plans for the railing?? thx! love your bed frame, can't wait to start!
We used the farmhouse plans on here and then measured our mattress to make sure everything would fit correctly. I don't think we wrote any of it down, just measured and cut as we went.
How did you attach the footboard of the Farmhouse King Bed to the frame? I doesn't seem as if there would be enough space to bolt the frame to the footboard in the same manner that you attach the headboard. Could you perhaps explain briefly? Thanks a lot!
