Our Farmhouse bed

January 25, 2012 |

About This Project

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!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$80
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
My husband actually mixed some stain shades to match some existing pieces we have, but as for his method, he did use a wood conditioner to allow for more even stain distribution, and then just poly, sand, poly to finish up.

Love it!

This turned out beautifully. May I ask what stain you used?

Thanks for the compliment :o)

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!

Thank you!

I really love the warmth of the stain color. I will have to try the concoction on my next project. Thanks again. :-)

Wow!

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

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)
