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.
