I used discarded lumber from when they built our house a few years ago for the support structure. I only needed the headboard for our new split king adjustable bed. There posts are 2 2x6s sistered together. The top shelf is a 2x6 and the insert is 1x6 tongue and groove (got the idea from the fancy farmhouse bed and loved it!) blue spruce flooring with worm holes. I love it, now to do a mashup of the two nightstands with a drawer and a door 😁Thanks Ana!!!
Ps, my hubby also bought me the Kreg electric pocket hole machine for mother's day for upcoming projects. I didn't even know that was a thing until i saw your video... It's awesome!!

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine
Finish Used
Sherwin Williams urbane bronze sample paint with a Annie Sloan wax finish. I love the depth of the wax finish and we won't be leaning against it since it's an adjustable bed so not a lot of wear and tear.
