Farmhouse King Bed

Submitted by kterrell on Fri, 06/26/2015 - 19:17

Not much to say, I followed the plans for the King (adjusted from Queen) and built this in 2 weekends. First weekend was construction (maybe 4-5hours) the second weekend was sanding and paint (2-3 more hours).

Pretty sure I built the wood frame incorrectly (supports are on the top instead of allowing the box to sit inside of the 2x6's). it sits a bit high, but it is very sturdy. The mattress shown is a 15" mattress sitting on a standard box-spring. I will probably just convert it to a platform with some plywood or slats and just ditch the box springs.

Estimated Cost
$170 spent on wood for the bed and the frame (Home Depot)
Used some extra exterior paint I had laying around that was the right color - dilute it a bit for a smoother application.
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
common / pine
