Well we sold my sons baby bed, Sadly he is growing up really fast and out grew it. So we decided to replace it with a farmhouse style bed we seen on Ana White's site. was a pretty easy build. Didn't take to long. If I wouldn't have started at 10:00 it would have been a breeze. the lumber and all cost pretty close to the sites price, I think it was around $80. So finished it up Saturday or I should say Sunday morning at around 1:00. Stef started painting it today so i'll put up finished pics i
Farmhouse bed with just the headboard for our 2 year olds bed. Used the same paint as the trim in the room so it would match. Used finish nails to connect the 1x6 and 1x2. I don't have a finish nailer so I just use hammer and nail and finish off with a nail punch. Used the Kreg Jig for the rest. I say that thing is a must have and go ahead and get one if you can.
This was the first build of any significance. I was looking for a new bedframe but was put off by the prices I had seen. Found Ana's website through HGTV and though I would try it. I used pine boards for everything but the posts, which were cedar boards. I did not realize that the original bed plans were for a flipped king size, so had to pu the side rails on the inside of the posts instead of flush. I decided to get rid of the box springs and build my own base out of 2X4's and plywood.
