About This Project

Purebond 3/4" and 1/4" birch plywood, S4S quality pine boards

I love how this bed turned out! I wanted some of the extra detail that the Pottery Barn version had--like routered edges, which proved to complicate matters from Ana's plan. I also needed this in a twin, so I looked at Ana's Brookstone twin storage bed for some advice as I planned this build as well.

Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used: 
Two coats primer, one coat of Olympic no-VOC paint, and three coats of General Finished High Performance polyurethane in satin. Primer and paint applied with a foam roller and the topcoat applied with a foam brush. I sanded with 220 grit before initial coat of primer and with 320 grit between each coat of paint and sealer after.
Estimated Cost: 
$325
