Decided to try out my new tools on making a bed frame. Please note, I have NEVER made anything before, this was my very first project (go big or go home, right?). After a bit of research, I found Ana White's site, and am so thankful. I took the basic plans for a king size bed, but modified them to fit the look I wanted. I found old flooring at Habitat for Humanity and sanded/ stained/ sanded/ stained. I used four different stain colors, but really tried to mix everything up with the colors. The bed frame turned out amazing!
