This was our first project & we worked on it together. My husband melded the Farmhouse plan with the Chunky Leg bed box. The box is reinforced & has 13 slats. We didn't sand out areas that had bark, but left them for the texture. We worked on it a few hours each night & then painted on Saturday & puit it together on Sunday. Design-wise we raised the bed so that the bottom of the frame sits at 12 inches. We also raised the footboard above the mattress level. These changes were just our preference, but we really love how it turned out. It is sturdy, substantial & beautiful!
