I stumbled upon the Ana White website (and subsequently the farmhouse bed plans) via something I saw on Pinterest. I had been bugging my husband for bedroom furniture for years, but there were always other bills to pay. So when I came accross that BEAUTIFUL and super-inexpensive-to-build bed, you can imagine my excitement! I sent a link to my husband, who was equally excited, and a few days later we have this georgeous new bed!
This turned out beautifully. May I ask what stain you used?
I asked my husband what his stain concoction was, and he said he used a 1:1 mixture of Minwax's Fruitwood and Red Oak stains. He did first use a wood conditioner so the wood would accept the stain more evenly. Hope this helps!
I really love the warmth of the stain color. I will have to try the concoction on my next project. Thanks again. :-)
You did a beautiful job!
I am going to build this. Does the $80.00 includes everything? This will cost me more I think(buy all my stuff from Lowe's).
I think after supplies it was probably closer to $100. I am amazed though every time I walk into our bedroom that our bed was so inexpensive and easy to build! It really is a beautiful piece. I defintely think you won't be disappointed. Happy building :o)
Yup, inexpensive and SOLID wood! something that will last and irreplaceable.
Great job, have to try this.
What stain did you use?
Looks great. This will be my first project -- and I'm hoping it will turn out looking just like this!! Cheers!!
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
