We are mediocre novice in the handy area. I more so than he, but together we wanted to tackle this project.
The directions were great and the pictures helped with some of the minor confusion. Great plan and solid beautiful bed frame.
The total cost was around $175. Wood is a bit expensive in our area...
the stain we chose was a semitransparent gray wash. I thought it was going to be a true stain but it was more a paint quality but in the end the wood grain showed through and we just used one coat! Went on thick
This was my boyfriend and my first major construction project and tackling it together we were a little intimidated ... never used a kreg jig but had purchased one a few years ago and never used it. Haha well you def want to have it. Watched a iTunes video and it Was easy and we faired well.
Only one argument that taught us both a few things and ended up giving us the desire to make more furniture together.
Thank you Ana white
