About This Project

This was the first bed I built from Ana's plans... Actually it was the first thing i have built since 7th grade shop class in 97' (ew) .. It was fairly easy, but I still had my up and downs! I actually held back tears a few times and almost gave up... BUT I didn't, or you wouldn't be reading this ;) No, I pulled up my big girl pants and I finished this bad boy up, and am now laying on it while writing my brag post, holla!! Anyway, after doing it once, I think it would be super easy to build another, if I decided to. It was all worth it though, this bed is absolutely stunning and everything I dreamed it would be. In short, if you're thinking about building this, do it! It took me almost a year to work up the courage, and that's just dumb :)

Building:
I pretty much followed the directions to a 'T', but I did use 3 an 4.5 inch LAG SCREWS and did not have a nailer so I used an old school hammer. Advice: if your lumber yard, or hardware store will cut your wood for you- LET THEM! Even though I did it myself an it was easy, it would have saved me soo much time if I let them do it right there at the store (sigh). If you have any questions feel free to ask me and I'll help as much as possible!

P.S. this thing is a mammoth, so be prepared for that.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$100-150

Glue

This bed is amazing! I can't wait to build it. I'm wondering if you glued anything together or is it done with all screws and nails? Amazing job.

Followed to a T?

I read on someone else's page that she had made her plans for the queen matteress to be turned sideways, and that the plans needed to altered as far as measurements go,is that true? Any info would be a huge help!

Lag Screws

How did the lag screws work? Do they bolt right through and show on the other side? Your bed looks great, and I hope mine will too!
