About This Project
Second project using completely reclaimed wood. The plans were easy to follow and I made a few minor modifications. I swapped out the two 2 X 4's inthe middle of the frame for 2 X 6's and added a center foot to each of them for center support. I had a hard time finding larger shims and was about to make my own when I grabbed a few pieces of scrap 1 X 3 and started to make the design you see on the footboard. My wife like the look so much that I repeated it on the headboard. Looking forward to making some nightstands that will match the look of the bed. The boards used to be nailed together as temporary fencing that is what created some of the color variation in the wood and I tried to create some sort of a pattern by alternating light and dark.
