About This Project

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.

dimensions/plans

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.

Farmhouse King Bed

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!
