King Sized Farmhouse Bed

My first attempt at one of Ana's beautiful projects, and it turned out better than I (and my wife) could have imagined. I made this for our 14th anniversary as we have not had a bed during that time. I used Jacobean colored stain, which I wasn't sure of, but as luck would have it, a neighbor who is a professional painter drove by and stopped to check it out. He offered to lacquer it in a satin finish for free!!! and it made a world of difference. I have received several comments on how it looks showroom quality. My wife is very happy. Only problem is she now wants the Farmhouse nightstand and a matching dresser. Looks like I have many more weekends worth of work ahead of me. Wouldn't have it any other way though. Had a blast!
