We built a europeanized queen-size farmhouse bed. The mattress size is 160x200 cm. I had to recalculate most measurements, because the available wood dimensions didn't really correspond to the usual 2x4 etc standard sizes - and mattresses come in different sizes around here as well. Other modifications: the footboard was built exactly like the headboard, because it was supposed to end up against a wall (no point in the outside covering). We're both very happy with the way this turned out - no squeaks, no bumping *khm*.

We used commercially available pre-bent slats for the mattress support. I've marked the skill level as beginner, as we are - but we're both very thorough and exact people with the will to go step-by-step and access to in-laws' proper tools and knowledgeable advice.
