About This Project
I have been working on this project intermittantly for months now. It is so amazing to have it finally finished and have it fit my style perfectly. Those shims took forever to apply. I stained them first and then attached them with wood glue to both the headboard and footbard.
I made a few modifications to the aesthic though none of the cut lengths. Instead of using 4X4 posts I used 2x4's and attached them with metal brackets to give it a slight industrial feel. I also painted the framing black and the posts black and stained the top 1X6 and 1X12 siderails the same color as I stained the shims which I thought tied it all together and made it look warm and rustic.
I did not build out the wood frame but instead used the metal frame I had already to set the bed down inside. I am really happy. Thank you Anna for this plan! I never would have thought I could pull something like this off!
