About This Project

What started out as an innocent shopping trip for a bed, sparked an idea, and led me to Ana White. Next thing I know...I had built a Farmhouse Bed. All by myself! Then I started a blog to document my whole bed building adventure - http://gleeinspired.blogspot.com/2010/10/bed.html.

Thanks Ana! You are truly amazing!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$150
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
I primed the wood with one coat of Behr latex wall primer. Then painted 2 coats of Behr latex paint (eggshell finish) in Cozy Cottage. Finally, I distressed some of the edges with sandpaper.

Gorgeous!!

Gorgeous!! Your bedroom is absolutely beautiful.... great job!!

It looks great! Also, I'm so

It looks great!

Also, I'm so excited that you incorporated your existing bed frame! I also have been wanting to build this bed, but was worried about trying to make it solid enough to support our big split-base king mattress. Could you tell me a bit more about how the frame works with this? Did you attach the frame to the wood, or is the wood bed just kind of floating around the frame? Does it look odd to have the frame legs as well as the wood legs?

Farmhouse Bed (King Size)

Thanks so much! I love our bed and Ana's plans make building this bed simple enough for complete beginners!

To attach our metal bed frame, I screwed it into both 4x4 posts on the headboard. Then I used 1x12 boards on each side, attaching them to the headboard and footboard with 2 L-brackets at each corner. I also screwed the metal bed frame to the side boards wherever possible. This provides a little added stability to everything. Not that the bed really needs it...it's super solid and sturdy!

Since our bedroom is long and narrow, it's impossible to see the frame legs with our furniture placement. Otherwise, I'd probably use a simple tailored bedskirt to hide them.

Hope this helps. Happy building!

Am I crazy? I swear I've seen

Am I crazy? I swear I've seen this room somewhere. Did you get published in a magazine or blog feature? Love it. The color scheme is so different; seriously- how did you pull off orange and blue and get it to look so fantastic?

Farmhouse King Size Bed Frame

Any chance you can email mail me or post here, the dimensions? I know the length along the frame is fixed but the width of the boards on the headboard and footboard and the height of the posts on each end as well as the height of the boards in the center of the head and foot board. I am a beginner and have been looking at headboard ideas online for quite some time now and yours is the first I actually liked and want to build.
